Rapper Silento Taking Legal Action Over Dubai Detention

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Silento is taking legal action after he was banned from leaving Dubai due to a financial dispute with a concert promoter.

The “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” star was reportedly supposed to play two shows in the United Arab Emirates in mid February, but the shows never took place so local promoter Makki Taj El Sir Abdel Halim, who took the issue to court, called for the star’s team to reimburse performance fees, travel and marketing costs.

The singer was ordered to pay $81,500 and a travel ban was imposed on him until the matter was settled.

His team eventually paid the court so he could leave, but the singer isn’t taking the court drama lying down and is planning to take legal action over the dispute.
