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.
