Although the Burna Boy concert at the O2 Park, Chaguaramas was allowed to continue as planned on Friday night, Cash Money Brothers Promotions intends to pursue legal action against their former promotional friends.
Cash Money originally attempted to file an injunction to stop the show altogether, but a spokesperson, in a interview with the Newsday, said the outfit decided to allow the concert to go on because of the “respect we have for the patrons” who bought tickets.
They have however filed a lawsuit against the other local and regional promoters involved, the Nigerian Grammy Award winner himself, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu aka Burna Boy and his agency.
The spokesperson said they would be seeking damages in the courts locally and international.
Cash Money alleged that the four other promotional outfits, who were approached as collaborators and investors for the concern, engaged in certain activities which saw Cash Money being pushed out of the picture, some of them engaging in a conspiracy by using private information to book the “African Giant” themselves.
Their claim for damages was filed in the High Court on Friday by attorneys Marika Trimm and Farai Hove Maisasai.
The local and regional promoters are: Sean Moses, of SM Promotions, Osita Ugeh of Duke Concepts, Crystal Cunningham of Twisted Entertainment Barbados, and Jules Sobian of Caesars Army.
Meanwhile in terms of performances,
Burna Boy was a hit with the crowd that did stick around for his performance.
The artist did not hit the stage until 1:45am, two hours after the first act, Kes the Band had hit the stage.
Jamaica singer Popcaan closed the show.
