Tochukwu Okoh also known as Peruzzi has been issued a legal notice over an alleged failure to perform at a wedding ceremony in Uyo despite being fully paid.
This is coming barely a week after popular artiste, Kizz Daniel got arrested in Tanzania for non-appearance at a show he was paid to perform in.
Udomah Daniel Idoeteyin, the prosecutor said he contacted Peruzzi through a show promoter, Oluwatomi Sokenu to have him perform at his wedding ceremony slated for July 23, 2022 at F3 Event and Banquet Hall, Uyo Bassey Way, Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State, but Peruzzi failed to show up at the wedding.
Idoteyin is holding out for a full refund of his money through his legal counsel.
The letter partly reads, “It was agreed at the meeting that N3million will be paid for him to perform at the wedding reception.
“It was further agreed that our client shall be responsible for your flight and hotel reservation expenses, including that of your manager and photographer.
“Sequel to the agreement, the sum of N3million was paid to Peruzzi’s bank account in two instalments of N1.5million each on May 25, and May 27, 2022 respectively into his Zenith Bank account.
“In furtherance of the unanimous agreement and to facilitate the timeous arrival of the singer for the event, flight tickets were also booked for him and some members of his management team, Mr. Lawal Olufemi (Manager) and Mr. Agbeja Olaoye (Photographer) via Ibom Air.
“A two-way reservation (Business Class) for Peruzzi at the sum of N180,000 and also regular class tickets at the rate of N120,000.00 were purchased for each of his manager and photographer.”
