Promoter Suudiman is in trouble over failure to clear balance for Nigerian Star Timaya. Timaya performed in Jinja on the 8th December 2017 at a show dubbed ‘Jinja Fest’. Credible sources we talked to revealed to us that Timaya demands the promoter a balance of USD 15000.
Ever since Timaya left Uganda in December, he has been demanding the money from the Suudiman. Another reliable source reveals to us that the Nigerian superstar has lost his patience and has decided to drag him to Interpol.
Timaya was booked to perform in Uganda last month. His performance in Jinja first was in doubt. The musician threatened not to perform without his balanced being cleared to Zero balance. However, it was later reported that JK Kazoora the executive director of Magic TV and Radio intervened.
Kazoora used his negotiation skills to have the artist perform. Tamiya listened and travelled to Jinja to perform. The details of their negotiations were however, private and the organisers had promised to pay his balance as soon as the show ends. This never came to effect.
Suudiman has a bad history when it comes to money and artistes. Three years back, he was involved in the same incidence with an international artiste Konshens. It was reported that Suudiman was part of the deal to bring Konshens to Uganda but after his performance, it was rumoured that he still demands his money.
Our efforts to reach Suudiman were futile as his known Phone number was off by press time. However, JK Kazoora distances himself from last year’s mess. He branded Suudiman as a thug.
