A Ugandan court has issued an order, directing operatives of the Ugandan police and the International Police (Interpol), to arrest Nigeria pop star, Wizkid and his manager, Sunday Are.
The order was issued by Magistrate Baligeya Moses Mufumbiro on Friday and said Wizkid should be arrested on or before January 16, 2017.
This follows a suit filed by Muwema and Co, solicitors for Face TV Ltd.
Wizkid and Are are being accused of failing to honour a contractual agreement it reached with its client.
The plaintiff said Wizkid failed to attend a concert scheduled for December 3 in Kampala, after a payment of $60,000 was made to Are.
It also alleged that it paid $5,000 and $3,000 respectively as brokerage fee and for the days they would stay in Uganda.
Muwema claims Face TV accrued expenses of over $300,000, after over 25,000 Ugandans had already bought tickets for the concert.
Earlier this month, Wizkid issued a statement cancelling all his shows this year and January 2015 for health reasons.
A statement posted on his official Twitter page read:
#TeamWizkid I’ve been on the road for two years touring and doing what I love without a break and now it’s all catching up on me.
I hate this but my docors have advised me to cancel the rest of my dates for this year and January 2017.
“Apologies to all my fans, especially in Nigeria and Uganda and the rest of the world. I promise to be back stronger and better to see you guys.
Promise you new music before the end of the year!!
Y’all have an amazing Christmas and New Year celebrations! I’ll be here recovering and getting my energy up to see you all next year.
Love you all and God bless.
