Just in: Burna Boy denies US Court banned him from performing in U.S and Canada

Nigerian Singer Burna Boy has denied that he was banned by a US court from performing in the U. S and Canada.

Following the report that US Supreme Federal Court in NewYork reportedly slammed an injunction against musical artist Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy, preventing him from performing at any event venue or any form of recording anywhere in USA & Canada for the time being unless he settles with the New York- based promotion company, Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, founded by promoter/producer, Niyi Fatogun, the artiste has debunked the report.

Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, was said to have invested up to $25,000 US Dollars in preparation and facilitating the tour, however their issue started after the promoter, Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, obtained USA Work Permit approval visa for artiste, then Burna Boy failed to honour the contractual agreement.

The promoter, Niyi Fatogun, hired professional entertainment lawyer, Takena Barango to represent Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, on Wednesday May17th, 2017, at the Supreme Court in New York.

The judge ordered a court injunction on Burna Boy outside US Tour, until Burna Boy Ltd settles the promoter for the financial loss Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, suffered due to breach of trust.

Burnaboy’s team, however, denied that their artiste has been banned from performing. They explained their own side of the story via messages sent to Roralae.

It was also revealed that the said promoter had extended an even longer arm of reconciliation by travelling down to London, so they could sort the issues out but Burnaboy failed to meet with him.

This was the reason due to the damages accumulated – that the promoter got an injunction banning the singer from performing in the U.S. and Canada until all issues are resolved.

However Burna Boy’s team have released a press statement;

Burna Boy fans and the general public are hereby informed that Burna’s current US tour and all upcoming shows are going forward as scheduled and that any website or article containing information to the contrary is patently false and misleading."

Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, Burna’s former promoter, has initiated a misinformation campaign designed to mislead the public about recent court proceedings in the New York federal and state courts. In a recent press release Vibesland has dishonestly represented that it has received an injunction barring Burna from playing his upcoming shows
