Cross River to sue US rapper

The Cross River State Government has hired lawyers in the United States to sue rapper, Rick Ross, for breach of contract. The government stated this in a BlackBerry Messenger broadcast on Wednesday morning. Ross was expected to perform today at the Calabar Festival but failed to turn up for unknown reasons.
The BBM broadcast reads, "‎​Please be informed that Rick Ross has cancelled his performance at Calabar Festival after accepting full performance fee.
"The rapper, Rick Ross, has issued a statement cancelling his performance at the Calabar Festival, scheduled for December 28, 2011, for reasons not related to his recent surgery and seizures.  "The performer’s cancellation is unexpected and the reasons are unknown to Cross River State since he has confirmed receipt of his entire performance fee many weeks ago.
"Currently, Cross River State and its agents have retained counsel in the United States to pursue their legal and monetary remedies against the artist."

  1. Is that how to feed the people? I forgot Rick Rose dropping lyrics will put food on their tables, cloth their children and give them every basic amenity.

  10. all these carnivals are money making ventures for the thieves who hang around these governors.
    What business has Rick Ross and Calabar carnival?
    Same fraud is going on with the PH carnival.

  11. Mama Somtee so true.

    I'm also not a fan of Rick Rozay. They need to speak with the American Embassy. They have asked their citizens not to travel to Naija.
