On the evening of July 19, 2023, Ghanaian musician Black Sherif was arrested at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA). According to reports by Kofi TV, Black Sherif was taken from the airport to the police headquarters in Accra due to a contractual breach related to a show he was scheduled to perform in Greece on July 4.
The reports suggest that the artiste had failed to honor the performance in Greece, which resulted in a complaint being filed against him by a client. As a consequence, Black Sherif had been placed on a stop list, leading to his arrest at the airport.
Kofi Adomah, the host on Kofi TV, shared additional details, stating that the contractual issue pertained to a cruise ship performance in Greece. Black Sherif had allegedly charged US$40,000 for the show and had already received half of the payment. However, he was meant to receive the remaining balance after completing the performance.
As of now, Black Sherif’s team has not yet commented on the report or the arrest. The situation has raised significant interest among fans and the music community, and further updates are awaited on how the matter unfolds.
