The case involving Cruise People Limited and Ghanaian musician Mohammed Ismail Sherif alias Black Sherif has been postponed until November 16, 2023.
According to Kwame Dadzie, entertainment journalist, when both parties appeared at the Adenta High Court earlier today, the Judge, Her Ladyship Mariama Sammo, ordered that instead of hearing verbal arguments from the Plaintiff and Defendant, their lawyers should write the legal arguments and file them by November 2, 2023.
Defendant (Black Sheriff) had filed a motion claiming that Ghana (and, for that matter, the Adenta High Court) lacked jurisdiction to hear the case because the contract for his employment required that any legal actions be heard in the United Kingdom.
Cruise People Limited, through its lawyers, also submitted an affidavit in opposition, arguing that the Adenta High Court had jurisdiction to hear and decide the issue because both parties are Ghanaians who work in Ghana.
Black Sherif’s road manager Frederick Osei alias Aubrey, the plaintiff Daniel Vanderpuye, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Cruise People Limited, and their counsels were in attendance.
Black Sherif was sued for allegedly failing to honor the agreement, which resulted in the cancelation of the Afro Cruise Jam concert slated for August 20, 2023.
As a result, the corporation is seeking $100,000 in compensation for its losses.
According to Cruise People Limited, the ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ hitmaker was scheduled to produce a video confirming his presence in the event in Greece after booking Black Sherif for the cruise and paying half of his booking fee ($20,000).
