Black Sherif’s Ex-Manager Loses Injunction Against Artiste

The court has always been the appropriate quarters to settle all manner of disputes and one of the landmark cases in the music industry has been sorted – at least!

he application for an injunction against Black Sherif that prevents him from performing his songs, has been dismissed by the High Court (Commercial Division), presided over by Her Ladyship Justice Akua Sarpomaa Amoah (Mrs) – www.ghanaweekend.com reports!

Shadrack Agyei Owusu on April 11, 2022 filed a case against the artiste claiming among others damages and over GH¢ 1 million for breach of contract.

Mr. Agyei Owusu also asked for interim preservation and the appointment of a receiver to manager and account for proceeds from performances and streams of Black Sherif’s music. His lawyers argued that if this was not done, the artist will dissipate the funds.

But the artiste’s lawyers led by Samson Lardy Anyenini argued against the motion after they had filed a defence and counterclaim for Black Sherif. 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, Ghana Weekend can confirm.

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. Mr. Anyenini 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.
