The ongoing legal battle between Chocolate City and Brymo is set to continue as the case has been adjourned to a later date.
At a sitting yesterday at the Federal High Court in Lagos, the presiding judge, Justice Buba I.N was forced to adjourn the hearing after counsels from both parties clashed in the courtroom. The session started by 11:14 a.m and ended by 1:00 p.m.
Brymo’s legal representative, Nike Olagbede and Chocolate City’s counsel, T.O Lawal clashed after a disagreement which led to the use of derogatory words between the two learned counsels during a court session. Justice Buba then announced that the case will be adjourned to a later date. ‘I will adjourn this case because the counsels have failed to portray themselves according to the stipulations of the court acts and acted in complete disregard to the court regulations,’ Justice Buba said.
The case has now been adjourned to Tuesday, March 4, 2014 as agreed by both counsels.
Speaking to The NET at the end of the court sessions, Brymo’s legal rep, Nike Olagbede reiterated Brymo’s desire to fight for his right. ‘Brymo will continue to fight. This fight is not for him alone. It is for all Nigerian music artistes against record labels set out to frustrate them’.
