- It appears Chidinma might have gotten herself into a bit of a mess with a promoter
- According to reports, she allegedly was a no show at an event she was paid an upfront for
- Her management however, have denied the allegations, calling him a fraud
Identified as Romaric Boco, the show promoter has come out to accuse Nigerian singer, Chidinma of allegations bothering on breach of contract for a show in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. He revealed this in an interview with Sunday Scoop.
According to the promoter, after Chidinma agreed and even received some money for the show, she went on to sign another contract with some other people for the same show and refused to refund him.
He said, “I have reported her to the Interpol in France, Benin and the Nigerian police. I paid her N800,000 in advance and also gave her manager, Rasheed, N200,000.”
In the contract letter, it was agreed that Boco, also known as Air Dubai Entertainment, would pay Chidinma N1.8m for her service to perform at Abidjan on Friday, July 27, 2018, at Mix Night Club.
Details of the letter also revealed this:“The total sum of N1.8m will be paid in two installments. The sum of N900,000 will be paid to Chidinma prior to signing the contract agreement and N900,000 will be pay to her at the Lagos airport when she is going for the show.”
However, it appears that Chidinma's management have a different truth as regards these accusations.
When Sunday Scoop contacted Chidinma’s manager, Rasheed Ogunsanwo, he described Boco as a fraudster, insisting that all he said were blatant lies.
In his words, “The event was done and Chidinma performed at the show in Abidjan. I have videos and pictures of the show. The people, who contacted Boco to hire Chidinma for the show, asked for a refund when they discovered he wanted to scam them. But he ran away with the money they gave him. I was in the loop from the start. I can give you the promoters’ numbers.”
