Black Sherif’s ex-manager loses injunction case barring him to perform his songs
The High Court, Commercial Division presided over by Her Ladyship Justice Akua Sarpomaa Amoah (Mrs) has dismissed the application for an injunction against Black Sherif.
Shadrack Agyei Owusu on the 11th of April, 2022 filed a case against the artiste claiming among others damages and over GHC 1 million for breach of contract.
He also filed for an injunction to stop the musician from performing and exploiting his talent until the case is tried and judgment was given.
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 artist’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.
Justice Sarpomaa Amoah held that Defendant will suffer grave injustice if the motion was granted.
According to the court, there was evidence which 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 cost against the Plaintiff because that will not help ongoing negotiations by the parties to resolve the matter amicably.
