Mavin Singer, Reekado Banks has been served a notice by the Nigerian Police to refund a couple that refused to show up and perform at their wedding. The case involves his manager and a Media Personality and is currently being served at the Ogba Police Area Command in Lagos.
According to findings, the singer was contracted on behalf of a couple, by the OAP to perform at their wedding but he failed to show up, and he at the same time did not deem it fit to refund the couple the payment they had made in advance to the singer.
To this effect, Uwa Idahosa, a Benin Based Media Personality and comedian who contracted the singer on behalf of the couple, dragged Reekado Banks to court but the singer’s manager said they could not refund the full amount, but could part with N800,000.
Inside sources have also revealed that the Police Authorities have given the singer and his manager, Temi an ultimatum till Monday to return the sum of 2million naira to the couple. If they did othewrise, they will be made to face the wrath of the law.
At the moment, Idahosa and the management of Reekado Banks manager are waiting till Monday to see if the singer will honour the Ultimatum served by the Police.
When Reekado’s manager, Temi, was contacted on phone to confirm if the allegation was true, he replied harshly on the issue, in a stern voice saying:
‘All the allegations are not true, I will rather let the matter remain as it is. When the right time comes, we will let the public know what transpired between both parties’.
We hope the matter is resolved amicably and this will also be a lesson to Nigerian celebrities, most of whom believe they are above the law.
