Nigerian Government To Sue Rick Ross Over Canceled African Performance

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Rick Ross could face a lawsuit over a canceled performance in Africa that was supposed to take place today (December 28).

Rick Ross was supposed to be the featured performer at the annual Calabar carnival celebration in Cross River State, Nigeria.

Reps for the Cross River State government released a statement to local media, slamming Rick Ross for canceling his appearance unannounced, due to “unforeseen contractual obligations.”

“The rapper, Rick Ross, has issued a statement cancelling his performance at the Calabar Festival, scheduled for December 28, 2011, for reasons not related to his recent surgery and seizures,” the statement read. “The performer’s cancellation is unexpected and the reasons are unknown to Cross River State since he has confirmed receipt of his entire performance fee many weeks ago.”

The government of Cross River State Government has hired lawyers in the United States to explore other options to sue Rick Ross for breach of contract and to recover the performance fee.

Representatives for Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com that the rapper was forced to cancel his appearance at the Calabar Christmas carnival celebration Monday (December 26), just days before the event.

“Rick was very excited to attend this event as it is the biggest festival in Nigeria and he is quite disappointed that he will not be performing,” a rep for Rick Ross told AllHipHop.com.

Reps for Rick Ross were not available to comment about the possible lawsuit as of press time.
