Popular and eccentric Nigerian musician, Terry G faces the grim prospect for being banned to perform in Europe for reportedly failing to show up for an event he was paid to feature in Sweden.
According to reports, Terry G returned to Nigeria on November 26 from a tour of Europe. He performed in many shows across the continent but failed to honour an event scheduled for November 27.
Reports from Naij have it that the promoters of the show in Sweden who lost a lot of money becuase of Terry G’s absence, have threatened legal action against him. The legal action is likely to ban the controversial artiste from performing in Europe. The promoters revealed to newsmen thus:
We are suing TGP Entertainment (Terry G’s company) and our legal team are on that already. He was quite unprofessional and that has cost us a lot, so he must face the consequences.
On his part, Alex Ozone, Terry G’s manager, explained that they were given a 26-day European working visa, which expired on November 26.
We could not perform at the last six shows because our visa expired, and all efforts to apply for an extension proved abortive because of the immigration crisis going on in Europe at the moment. We are still working on the renewal and go back to finish the tour next year because of the fans if the promoters can reschedule. All the promoters are aware of the situation. Besides, we did not collect advance payment from anybody.
Gabriel Oche-Amanyi, popuarly known as Terry G also performed in others major cities in Europe like Malaga, Mallorca, Vienna and Prague
