Nigerian promoter Chris Ubosi and his company, Megalectrics are reportedly suing Rihanna and Jay Z over a 2013 concert that got canceled TMZ says
Chris, whose company owns BeatFM, Classic FM, Naija FM, alleges that he struck a deal with two people who claimed to represent Rihanna, as well as her label Roc Nation and its founder Jay Z. The show was supposed to go down in May and Ubosi says he made 3 payments, totaling $160,000 but her camp asked to postpone the show. Ubosi says he agreed, but only if Rihanna posted the new date on social media but it never happened. Ubosi subsequently axed the show, demanding the money back. When it wasn’t received, he sued.
For the proposed show, which would have lasted 65 minutes, RiRi would receive $425,000.
A rep for Roc Nation tells TMZ … “Rihanna, Roc Nation nor anyone associated personally or professionally with either party was in contact with this person. Unfortunately this person was scammed. Rihanna nor Roc Nation collected no money for this event.” Should that be the case, it would suggest Ubosi was a victim of a scam
