Rick Ross Sued By Nigerian State For Cancelled Concert

Rick Rozay finds himself in legal hot water after he bailed on a festival performance in Nigeria's Cross River State.

Rick Ross may not forgive, but apparently the government of Nigeria's Cross River State doesn't either. The Bawse was recently slapped with a lawsuit by the Nigerian state's government for canceling a performance date at the Calabar Festival and failing to reimburse the performance fees.

According to a recent article from InformationNigeria.org, Rick Rozay abruptly cancelled his performance at this year's Calabar Festival, a nearly month-long music festival funded by the Cross River State government. In addition to failing to notify the concert organizers of his intention to cancel his performance, the Miami rapper has failed to reimburse them for his performance fees, which he had already cashed.

In response, the Cross River State government has hired lawyers within the United States to sue the rapper for breach of contract. An official statement was released by the government this past Wednesday via BlackBerry Messenger.

      curtis jackson was born on july 5th 1975. he took the name of a real drug dealer named 50 cent from back in the days. he started rapping at the age of 12. he has been around drugs but never sold them. in his late 20s he then began throwing shots at supreme one of the biggest drug dealers in new york. and in result 50 cent got shot 3 times not 9 as he says to boost is career. 50 cent was also battling for a spot against ja rule and they had a few altercations where 50 cent was attacked stabbed and beaten twice. so 50 cent got an order of protection on murder inc. now 50 cent is battlng for a spot on the hip hop scene again because his rap career was ended by numerous amount of rappers rick ross jadakiss camron nas jayz etc. and he is now making movies for blockbuster and the redbox.

      50 Cent snitched on Preme and got shot 3 times, not 9 time for that snitching!!!! His mama was a prostitute but he tells everybody that she was a drug dealer. Yeah right!!! Only in the movie!!! She was an addict!!!!

    You see the problem is William is promoting a lifestyle he never lived and telling the youth that it's call to sell drugs and be a gangsta If William rapped about his real life that would be great. Promoting finishing high school and going to University and getting a well payed job, But he is to scared to to tell the truth We have all met people who were dishonest and avoided eye contact. Many people know that their eyes betray their lies. Some try to conceal the truth by wearing sunglasses of looking down at the ground

    i love Rozays music, but as a performer the nigga is straight-up shady. I went to his show in Toronto last week and the nigga showed up 3hrs late, with no opening act. I left after standing in the crowd for 4hrs and then I heard he showed up and did a short set. I want my fuckin money back too

      Dues are dues though, man. No matter the country. Ross didn't let 'em know he was bailing, and didn't reimburse the performance fees, which leaves the festival short of that cash. Really, if they give Ross money, and then he backs out and doesn't pay it back, then he's no better than the scam artists you're talking about.

    fo his health He's so serious dat he doesnt wanna show his fuckin seizure infront of a lotta audiences I saw him at fitness club and um...lol He couldnt lift 1kg anything

  • Anonymous

    I actually don't understand how this sort of thing happens. If Ross did have to cancel last minute, surely giving the money back would seem rather obvious. I'd assume someone should be doing this sort of job for him, if so, what the fuck is he paying them for?
