Reekado Banks has been given served a notice by the Nigerian Police to refund a couple money that he refused to show up at their wedding to perform. The case involves his manager and a Media Personality and is currently serving a term at the Ogba Police Area Command in Lagos.
According to findings, Reekado was contracted on behalf of a couple, by the On-Air-Personality to perform at their wedding but he didn’t show up, and at the same time did not deem it fit to give the couple their money back that they had given him in advance.
To this effect, Uwa Idahosa, a Benin Based Media Personality and comedian who contracted the singer on behalf of the couple, took 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 disclosed 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 otherwise, 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.
