Did Akon make a promise to an Arabic singer and didn’t keep it?
Akon has been served with a lawsuit by an Egyptian singer, Tamer Hosny for allegedly failing to appear on the singer’s single he spent so much money producing. According to the new lawsuit filed this week, Rapper Pitbull ditched the song as well thanks to the Konvict star.
The famous Egyptian singer claims, after spending hundreds of thousands to produce the single, Pitbull and Akon, who were supposed to sing along inexplicably, vanished. Hosny says he paid Akon a whopping $300K for both singers to sing on his new hit, Arabian Knight.
According to TMZ, 'Akon delivered the track but according to the lawsuit, in return for the $300K ... Akon and Pitbull were supposed to appear in the "Arabian Knight" music video ... but Pitbull was a no show."
Tamer claims Akon promised to deliver Pitbull for the shoot, so it's his fault and he's on the hook. He adds that it's double the disaster because he had to pay $100K for cameras and crew the day of the shoot - all for nothing.
We are still investigating why was Pitbull not sued but it’s going to be a thug of war if Akon doesn’t return Hosny’s $300,000.
And as they say, Middle Easterners are just the wrong peeps to mess with!
