Black Sherif’s court case with Cruise People adjourned to Nov. 16

The hearing of the case involving Cruise People Limited and Ghanaian artiste Mohammed Ismail Sherif aka Black Sherif has been adjourned to November 16, 2023.

At the Adenta High Court on Thursday 19th October, 2023, the Judge, Her Ladyship Mariama Sammo ordered that instead of hearing verbal arguments from the Plaintiff and Defendant, their lawyers should write the legal arguments and file them by November 2, 2023.

Defendant (Black Sheriff) had filed a motion that Ghana (and for that matter the high court in Adenta) had no jurisdiction to determine the case because according to him the contract for his performance stipulates that any legal proceedings shall be heard in United Kingdom.

Cruise People Limited, through its lawyers also filed an affidavit in opposition on grounds that the Adenta High Court has jurisdiction to hear and determine the case because both parties are Ghanaians and ply their trades in Ghana.

In attendance were Black Sherif’s Road Manger, Frederick Osei aka Aubrey, the plaintiff Daniel Vanderpuye, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Cruise People Limited and their counsels.

Black Sherif was sued for allegedly failing to honour the agreement leading to the cancellation of the Afro Cruise Jam concert he had been scheduled for in August, 2023.

The company, therefore, is demanding 100,000 compensation for loses made.

According to Cruise People Limited, after booking Black Sherif for the cruise and paying half of his booking fee ($20,000), the ‘Kwaku TheTraveller’ hitmaker was expected to make a video confirming his participation in the event in Greece but did not show up.
