Beat FM CEO, Chris Ubosi Sues Rihanna, Jay Z Over Cancelled Performance




Owner of Nigeria's Beat FM radio
station, Chris Ubosi has sued Jay Z and
his management company, Roc Nation
for reportedly cancelling a performance
by Rihanna for which a deposit had
already been paid.

The Nigerian concert promoter and CEO
of Megalectrics, owners of Beat FM and
Classic FM, also claims that Roc Nation
has refused to refund a $160,000
deposit made by his company.
According to TMZ, Ubosi said he struck
a deal with two people who claimed to
be Rihanna's representatives. The
agreement was that Rihanna would get
$425,000 to perform for 65 minutes in
Nigeria.

The show was slated to hold in May
2013 but after Ubosi had secured the
date by forwarding the down payment
of $160k to Roc Nation, the month
Rihanna was due to arrive, her
representatives said they had to
reschedule.

Ubosi, in the civil suit filed in a
Manhattan court said he agreed to the
postponement on the condition that
Rihanna would post the new date on
social media.
When this did not happen, Megalectrics
cancelled the show and demanded its
money back.
TMZ further reports that sources close
to Rihanna claim that her management
had no knowledge of the show and that
the singer never received the money.


A Roc Nation representative was
quoted by TMZ to have to
said."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"
