Akon Facing More Money Problems, OWES $127K To A Video Marketing Firm In Atlanta
39 year-old Akon, whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam, currently owes over $127K to Atlanta Business Video, a company that specializes in sales and video marketing.
The St. Louis rapper failed to compensate the company for months of work on his social media website entitled, “FANTRACE” (a site that fans can interact with celebrities). The website was completed back in February 2011.
According to ABV, “an Atlanta based firm:”
“We dedicated more than 1023 hours of combined labor editing clips of actor and comedian Eddie Griffin, as well as Jeffrey Star, in order to ensure that this project was completed in a timely and professional manner as previously agreed on.”
A rep for the ABV said since the job was completed, the company have repeatedly requested a payment of $127,083.00 from the hip hop mogul and has exhausted all avenues of communication available for an amicable solution for collection of debt.
The company is suing him for $127,083.00 with no additional charges.
