TMZ reports that Chris Ubosi and his company Megalectrics are suing the questionable talent over a 2013 concert — that never happened.

Chris Ubosi claims his company Megalectrics paid $160,000 to hold a concert in Nigeria featuring Rihanna and Jay-Z.
He alleges that he struck a deal with two people who claimed to rep Rihanna, as well as her label Roc Nation and its founder Jay-Z. For the proposed show, which would have lasted 65 minutes, Rihanna would receive $425,000.
Ubosi asserts that he made three payments totalling $160,000 only for Rihanna to request a postponement. He agreed on the condition that the 28-year-old posted the revised date on social media. It never happened and Ubosi subsequently axed the show, demanding the money back. When it wasn’t received, he sued.
Now that Ubosi has sued Rihanna, Roc Nation and Roc Nation-boss Jay-Z, the company has addressed the issue saying Rihanna was never paid the sum and they had no knowledge of the concert.
“Roc Nation nor anyone associated personally or professionally with either party was in contact with this person. Unfortunately this person was scammed,” the company wrote in an official statement.
