Burna Boy

  A US Supreme Federal Court in New York has slammed an injunction against, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy.
The injunction prevents him from performing at any event venue or any form of recording anywhere in the US and Canada for the time being unless he settles with the New York- based promotion company, Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, founded by promoter/producer, Niyi Fatogun.
Burna Boy is an independent artist signed under the Burna Boy Limited and released his OAS LP under Spaceship Entertainment label that presently holds the copyright to all his music.

He was sued in the Federal Court by Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, on allegations that he signed a contract for 2016 USA and Canada tour, failed to turn up and postponed the tour, which put the promoter, Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, in serious debt in the United States.
Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, was said to have invested up to $25,000 in preparation and facilitating the tour.

The issue started after the promoter, Vibesland Entertainment, LLC, obtained USA Work Permit approval visa for Burna Boy and he failed to honour the contractual agreement.
Fatogun hired professional entertainment lawyer, Takena Barango, to represent Vibesland Entertainment in the suit.
It was heard on May 17, 2017 at the Supreme Court in New York.
The judge ordered a court injunction on Burna Boy outside US Tour until Burna Boy Limited settles the promoter for the financial loss Vibesland Entertainment, LLC suffered due to breach of trust.
