Dancehall artiste Khago was awarded US$800,000 in a countersuit against former manager and producer Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor of Streaminn Hub Inc.
Khago’s wife, Francine Gayle, confirmed the ruling in the District Court for the Southern District of Florida last month, with the Jamaica Observer.
“Khago is very happy for the fact that out of all that has happened, we have gotten the final judgement. It’s been a long time; we have waited for how long it took. Finally the victory is here” Gayle told the publication.
It’s the latest win for the Nah Sell Out Mi Fren who previously had a lawsuit by McGregor – who sued for fraud, breach of contract, defamation of character and copyright infringement – thrown out after Khago broke ties with him.
Khago has not commented but took to Instagram to share an article on the ruling.
According to a breakdown of the damages awarded, Khago will receive US$300,000.00 in statutory damages for copyright infringement, US$99,568.59 in compensatory damages for tortious interference with business relationships, US$298,705.77 in punitive damages for tortious interference with business relationships and US$65, 352.00 in reasonable expenses and attorney fees.
