According to reports, Reekado Banks’s manager, is held at a Police Station in Lagos due to a disagreement over the singer’s failure to show up at a wedding reception.
Linda Ikeji reports that Reeky’s manager and brother, Solomon Temioluwa Seth, popularly known as Temi, is at the Ogba Police Area Command in Lagos, after being ‘dragged’ there by an aggrieved client.
Advanced Performance Fee Disagreement
According to the report, Reekado Banks, via his manager, Temi, received Two Million Naira as an advanced performance fee for a wedding in Benin City. But he failed to show up.
The report further says that after the wedding, Uwa Idahosa (an OAP and comedian) who contracted Reekado Banks to perform at the wedding on behalf of the couple demanded a refund but the singer through his manager, Temi said they could only refund N800,000 saying they incurred logistics costs as well.
This led to the involvement of the police, as Uwa Idahosa, Reekado Banks' manager (Temi) and relatives of the couple are at the police station to demand a full refund. At the time of the report, they are still at the station waiting for the Area Commander to settle the dispute.
Temi and Reekado Banks have had a long working relationship that precedes their time at Mavin Records. Temi began to manage and support Reekado Banks while the singer was in University of Lagos, and bore the name ‘Spice’. He is regarded as a huge influence on Reekado’s career, supervising strategy, growth and business for his brother. In April 2017, Temi got married to his long-time sweetheart.
Aside from Reekado Banks, he’s also the manager of Marvtunes, Awanjo and Parcel.
Pulse has reached out to Temi Solomon, but at the time of this report, there has been no response.
