Nigerian businessman sues Rihanna for not performing at show he paid for

Nigerian businessman sues Rihanna for not performing at show he paid for
Beat FM Boss Chris Ubosi has sued US pop singer Rihanna and her record label Roc Nation  – owned by Jay Z. The businessman was said to have paid money into an account purportedly owned by Roc Nation but Rihanna never came to grace the show which he paid for.

TMZ reports that

Chris Ubosi and his company, Megalectrics, are suing RiRi over a 2013 concert that never happened. Ubosi says he struck a deal with 2 people who claimed to rep Rihanna, as well as her label Roc Nation and Jay Z. Rihanna would get $425,000 to play for 65 minutes.

The show was supposed to go down in May — and Ubosi says he made 3 payments, totaling $160k … but then her camp asked to postpone the show. Ubosi says he agreed, but only IF Rihanna posted the new date on social media.

In the suit, he says that never happened so Megalectrics pulled the plug, and demanded its money back. Since Ubosi didn’t get the cash, he’s suing Rihanna, Jay Z and Roc Nation for the dough.
Sources close to Rihanna tell us her management knew nothing about the gig and the singer never collected a dime. Her people believe Ubosi is a victim of a scam.
