JamRok Bar and Event Centre has filed a lawsuit against popular Ghanaian Highlife and Afrobeats musician, Andrew Nii Commey Otoo, professionally known as Mr. Drew.

The lawsuit stems from Mr. Drew’s failure to perform at the ‘Easter Dance Party with Mr. Drew’ event, which was scheduled to take place on April 1, 2024, in Asuogyaman.

According to the organizers, Mr. Drew disappointed them on the day of the event despite receiving 50% of his performance fee in advance.

The management team of JamRok revealed that everything was in place for the event, but Mr. Drew withdrew from the event without any explanation to the organizers.

Also, the team disclosed that after receiving his payment, Mr. Drew recorded a video of himself confirming his participation in the event.

On the day of the event, Mr. Drew arrived and checked into his hotel around 3 pm, in the company of 3 other team members, and he was to relax and get ready for the event in the evening. All the other artistes on the bill had also arrived and were in their hotels.

At around 12:30 am, organizers say they tried calling the artiste to come and perform but there was no response from his team, hence the organizers drove to the hotel and found they were fast asleep. After some time, Mr. Drew and his team finally came out of the hotel and sat in their car and drove off, according to the event organizers in a press statement.

In a writ of summons issued by the District Magistrate Court – Senchi on April 15, 2024, JamRock Bar and Event Centre is demanding the recovery of GH₵15,000.00 paid to the plaintiff (Mr. Drew) to perform at the event which he failed to do so and the refund of the said money annulled since February 12, 2024.

It also seeks an order for the recovery of Special damages amounting to GH₵36,511.00 being direct costs incurred by the plaintiff in connection with the event; and general damages of GH₵200,000.00 against the defendants, for the severe damage caused to the plaintiff’s brand as a result of the cancellation of the event.
