Ghanaian musician Black Sherif has been arrested at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA). He was arrested on the evening of July 19, 2023.
According to Kofi TV, Black Sherif was transferred from the airport to the Accra police headquarters due to a contractual breach involving a July 4 show that he failed to honor in Greece.
It went on to say that the artiste was detained at the airport because he had been placed on the stop list after a client made a complaint against him.
“We called our sources and it appears it is due to a contractual issue he has to play on a cruise ship in Greece having charged US$40,000 and receiving half of the amount,” Kofi Adomah, host on Kofi TV stated.
In the video below, he said the artiste “was due to receive the balance after playing the show.”
The squad of Black Sherif has yet to respond to the report.
The 21-year-old musician, real name Mohammed Ismail Sherif, is returning home after performing at some of the most prestigious music festivals in the United States and Europe this summer.
Among other places, he has performed at AfroNation Portugal, Wireless Festival UK, Couleur Cafe Festival in Belgium, SummerJam Festival in Köln, and Openair Frauenfeld in Switzerland.
