Latest in the midst of a controversy is Mavin Singer, Reekado Banks. According to reports from TheNet, police arrested Rekado’s manager on Monday, while he is on the run.
The report revealed that singer was contracted on behalf of a couple, an OAP to perform at a wedding. But Reki failed to show up, neither did he offer the client who contracted him a full refund.
To this effect, Uwa Idahosa, a Benin Based Media Personality and comedian who contracted the singer on behalf of the couple, dragged Reekado to court but the singer’s manager said they could not refund the full amount, but could part with N800,000.
Sources close to the singer told TheNet that the Police Authorities gave the singer till Monday to return the sum of 2million naira to the couple, while Timi is in Kirikiri pending next date of hearing.
The report also added that Temi was arrested after he was invited by the Area G police . However only his manager showed up. Idahosa who brokered the deal claimed that Reekado refused to honour the several police invitations sent to him, leading the police to arraign his brother/manager in court.
Meanwhile, the police described the singer to be ‘at large’, and Temi remanded in prison until the next court date on February 19th 2017.
