On Monday March 3rd, Nigerian musician Brymo – born Olawale Ashimi – won round one of his court battle with his former record label Chocolate City.
The label took an injunction against him, ‘restraining him from recording, releasing or distributing any musical works pending the determination of the suit against him.’
Presiding judge, Justice Buba I.N sitting at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Nigeria lifted the injunction against Brymo, saying he’s free to continue doing music and releasing his materials while the case continues hearing in court.
The presiding judge said Chocolate City can be compensated at a later period. “Since the plaintiff can be compensated at a later date, the defendant is free to carry out his duties as a singer so that none of the parties will be at a disadvantage’. the judge said
A 2-day hearing for the case has been slated for 19th and 20th of March.
