The ECOWAS Youth Council and West African Youth Support Development Forum has used Peter Okoye also known as Mr. P of P Square fame.
The popular Nigerian singer was sued for failing to show up at an event he has been paid for.
Reports circulating says Mr. P collected the sum of N2.8 million to perform at the inauguration of the West Africa Champions League in Asaba, Delta State, but he did not show up.
The money received was 70% down payment of 4 million he charged to perform.
The managing director was quoted to have said in an interview with IGBERE TV that, “On June 16th, 2019, after Mr. P collected the money and did a video that he will be coming live, he refused to show up at the event which later crashed the dream of the organization to give a better opportunity to youths.”
He said they run at a loss because Mr.P failed to turn up.
“Mr P actually killed the show by not turning up for the event. Many people wanted to see him perform live.
“We lost over 33 Million Naira because he didn’t show up. the efforts of former under 20 and 17 national team coach, Sam John Obuh and other hosts of celebrities who honored the event to support our youth development through sports were killed by Mr. P’s actions.”
“We have sued him for over 500, 000, 000, 00 nairas. The organizations have written to him severally to refund the money but he refused”.
“That’s why we are in court today, 23rd February 2022 but the court has adjourned the case to 13th April 2022.”
