Black Sherif’s ex-manager loses injunction case against the former.
The High Court (Commercial Division), presided over by Her Ladyship Justice Akua Sarpomaa Amoah, has dismissed Black Sherif’s request for an injunction barring him from performing his songs.
On April 11, 2022, Shadrack Agyei Owusu filed a lawsuit against the performer, alleging among other things damages and more than GH 1 million for contract breach.
Additionally, Mr. Agyei Owusu requested the interim preservation of the work and the appointment of a receiver to oversee and keep track of the earnings from Black Sherif’s musical performances and streaming services.
If this isn’t done, the artist will spend the money, according to his attorneys.
However, after filing a defense and counterclaim for the artist, the artist’s attorneys, led by Samson Lardy Anyenini, argued against the for Black Sherif.
Flek news has confirmed that the judge ruled today that the plaintiff had not presented a strong argument for the injunction and other directives he requested from the court.
According to Justice Sarpomaa Amoah, if the request is allowed, the defendant will suffer great injustice.
The evidence indicating Black Sherif was no longer obligated by the contract after it was terminated, according to the court, has not been contested.
Thanking the court, Mr. Anyenini announced he was waiving the plaintiff’s costs since doing so would hinder current talks between the parties to settle the dispute peacefully.
Why was Black Sherif sued?

According to the contract, Black Sherif was obligated to coordinate all of his actions through the investor who joined the team to support the musician.
