Nightclub threatens to sue Ayra Starr, Mavin Records over breach of contract

NEWS DIGEST − A nightclub with the name “Voltage” in Yenagoa, the state capital of Bayelsa, has threatened to charge Nigeria’s fast growing artiste, Ayra Starr and her record label, Mavin Records, to court for failing them and breaching contract.

The female artiste who was scheduled to perform at the one-year anniversary celebration of Options Lounge, refused to play her side of the contract by not showing up at the event.

The party that was slated for Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at club Voltage, eventually failed to hold after the Ayra Starr disheartened the management by failing to show up.

Speculations have it that the clubhouse deposited a sum N3 million to Mavin Records as requested, however, the record label allegedly fail to attend few hours to the event.

While reacting, Option Lounge and Voltage Night Club executive, Tonwerigha Oyintonbra Tombrown, said in a statement:

“This is to inform the general public that the planned 1 (One)year anniversary of Option Lounge which was billed to hold today, 5th January 2022 and the after party which was to hold at club voltage where Ayra Starr, a Mavin Records artist was to perform has been shifted forward to another date that will be communicated soon.

The statement reveals Ayra Starr had disappointed the clubhouse twice which now becomes a concern for the party organisers.

“This is due to the persistent disappointment and complete breach of contract for the second time from Ayra Starr and Mavin Records. We do not understand why Ayra Starr and Mavin Records after agreeing on a fee which we paid in full have consistently disregarded her fans here in Bayelsa. We have consulted our legal team and we are taking all legal mercenaries against her and Mavin Records.

“As a business we hold our esteem customers very high and we cannot disappoint them for the second time; hence the need for this publication. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience that this may have caused you for the second time. Please accept our apologies”.

Meanwhile, at the time of publishing this, neither Ayra Starr nor Mavin Records had responded to the allegation.
