An arrest order have been issued for Nigeria’s hip pop star, Wizkid and his manager, Sunday Are by a Ugandan court.

The order was issued by Magistrate Baligeya Moses Mufumbiro on Friday and said Wizkid should be arrested on or before January 16, 2017.

This follows a suit filed by Muwema and Co, solicitors for Face TV Ltd.
Wizkid and Are are being accused of failing to honour a contractual agreement it reached with its client.

The plaintiff said Wizkid failed to attend a concert scheduled for December 3 in Kampala, after a payment of $60,000 was made to Are.

It also alleged that it paid $5,000 and $3,000 respectively as brokerage fee and for the days they would stay in Uganda.

Muwema claims Face TV accrued expenses of over $300,000, after over 25,000 Ugandans had already bought tickets for the concert.

Earlier this month, Wizkid issued a statement cancelling all his shows this year and January 2015 for health reasons.

A Ugandan court has issued an order, directing operatives of the Ugandan police and the International Police (Interpol), to arrest Nigeria pop star, Wizkid and his manager, Sunday Are.
