Ghanaian Dancehall Star Shatta Wale Faces Legal Consequences: Ordered to Pay $120k Plus Interest and GHC20k in Damages to Wildaland Festival Organizers

Accusations arose against the popular dancehall artist Shattawalegh when he failed to grace the stage at the highly anticipated Wildaland Festival in Ghana in 2021, despite having received the full payment of $120k. The festival organizers took legal action, resulting in a court order for Shattawalegh to reimburse the full amount with an additional $10k in interest.

In a recent ruling, the court also mandated the artist to pay GHC20k in damages to the festival founders for the breach of contract.

This legal development underscores the consequences artists may face for failing to fulfill their performance obligations, shedding light on the importance of accountability in the entertainment industry.”
