The order was issued by Magistrate Baligeya Moses
Mufumbiro on Friday and said Wizkid should be arrested on
or before January 16, 2017.
This follows a suit filed by Muwema and Co, solicitors for
Face TV Ltd.
Wizkid and Are are being accused of failing to honour a
contractual agreement it reached with its client.
The plaintiff said Wizkid failed to attend a concert
scheduled for December 3 in Kampala, after a payment of
$60,000 was made to Are.
It also alleged that it paid $5,000 and $3,000 respectively
as brokerage fee and for the days they would stay in
Muwema claims Face TV accrued expenses of over
$300,000, after over 25,000 Ugandans had already bought
tickets for the concert. It will be recalled that
Earlier this month, Wizkid issued a statement cancelling all
his shows this year and January 2017 for health reasons.
