The popular Nigerian-American rapper Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, better known by his stage name Wale, is currently in a mess as he is being slapped with a law suit by the organizers of the One Africa Music Fest and promoters, Upfront and Personal Global for ditching the show which he was billed to headline.
According to TMZ and the new lawsuit, the Ride Out rapper was paid a huge sum of money ranging to about $25k to perform at their inaugural concert scheduled for July 22, but did not show up.
“Wale took a bag of money to headline a concert, but dropped a lotus flower bomb on it when he skipped the show and kept the cash”
Asides the huge cash, Upfront and Personal Global shows an alleged signed document between the DC rapper, Wale and the organizers and also proof of payment. There’s been no official response from the rapper or his team yet but we should be expecting on soonest.
