This has led to the show’s organizers, Face TV, to file charges for cheating, conspiracy to defraud and obtaining money by false pretenses against him.

The charges stem from substantial expenses in booking and re-booking flights, hotel, venue, advertising and promotions for the concert – which over 25,000 people had already bought tickets for – which gross over $300,000 (over N144million), according to documents filed by the Chief Magistrates Court of Buganda.
