Black Sherif has come out victorious over his court issue with his ex-manager.
Black Sherif’s former manager, Shadrach Agyei Owusu, on April 11, 2022, filed a suit against him, claiming the young musician breached a contract between them.
He demanded over GH¢ 1 million—and asked for an injunction to be placed on Sherif and also be prevented from performing his songs.
Shadrach further requested interim preservation and the appointment of a receiver to manager and account for proceeds from performances and streams of Black Sherif’s music.
His application was dismissed after a hearing at the High Court (Commercial Division), presided over by Her Ladyship Justice Akua Sarpomaa Amoah (Mrs), Ghanaweekend.com reported.
“In her ruling today, the judge held that Plaintiff had failed to make a good case for the injunction and related orders he seeks from the court.
“Justice Sarpomaa Amoah held that Defendant will suffer grave injustice if the motion was granted. According to the court, there was evidence that has not been challenged that Black Sherif was no longer bound by the contract after terminating it,” the website detailed.
Samson Lardy Anyenini, Black Sherif’s lead counsel, thanked the court and said he was waiving the cost against the Plaintiff because that will not help ongoing negotiations by the parties to resolve the matter amicably.
