Polo G Takes Legal Action

Polo G has taken legal action against promoters J. Noah B.V. and Jozef Wanno, filing a lawsuit demanding nearly $500,000. 

According to Radar Online, the lawsuit alleges that the promoters falsely claimed to be booking agents and promoters, deceiving the public by advertising live performances that were never intended to happen. Polo G asserts that these false advertisements have caused financial harm and damaged his brand and reputation in the music industry. 

The Lawsuit

According to the lawsuit, the “Epidemic” rapper had agreed with the defendants to perform overseas. 

The contract stated that he would be paid $495,000 for ten performances. However, Polo G claims that the promoters failed to fulfill their obligations. The lawsuit reveals that the rapper received only $100,000, missing the $123,000 payment deadline, and never received the remaining $23,000 or any of the promised installment payments.

Despite informing the defendants that the performances would not be happening, Polo G alleges that they continued to advertise the events. The rapper asserts that the false advertisements and misuse of his name have caused significant harm to his brand. 

Polo G’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for the financial losses and damage to his reputation.
