Rapper Rick Ross is facing legal action from government officials in Nigeria after he cancelled a concert in the country.
The hip-hop star, who suffered two seizures in October (11), was due to perform at the Cross River State Calabar Christmas Festival on Wednesday (28Dec11), but he pulled out of the show just days before he was due to take the stage.
A representative for Ross insisted the star's recent health problems were not to blame for the axed gig and put the cancellation down to "unfulfilled contractual obligations".
However, Cross River State officials are unhappy about the cancellation and they have hired lawyers in America to pursue legal action against Ross.
An official statement, obtained by Informationnigeria.org, reads, "The rapper, Rick Ross, has issued a statement cancelling his performance at the Calabar Festival, scheduled for December 28, 2011, for reasons not related to his recent surgery and seizures. The performer's cancellation is unexpected and the reasons are unknown to Cross River State since he has confirmed receipt of his entire performance fee many weeks ago.
"Currently, Cross River State and its agents have retained counsel in the United States to pursue their legal and monetary remedies against the artist."
