Hasan Raheem sends notice to Lahore’s Musik Fest organisers for not paying advance feesadmin
“We will be announcing the new date very soon; keep tuned, and don’t worry, your tickets are still valid,” Hasan Raheem says ”
The Musik Fest organisers notified Images that the event had been cancelled owing to the heat. “Refunds from all ticket sources are also available. They stated that assuming and spreading cancellation news about our event and a fraudulent event results in online defamation, harassment, mental suffering, damages, and other consequences. “They stated. “But we are still anticipating a positive reaction from them, and we want to conclude this on a positive one since there may have been a misunderstanding on their end.”
According to the charges made by Raheem’s team, the organisers gained no financial advantage because the postponement was “primarily due to natural forces that are beyond our control.” “Although we are facing a significant financial loss due to this postponement, maintaining public trust is our top concern, and we are ensuring that everybody who demands a refund is obliged and receives their return,” they added.
Raheem has declined to perform at the rescheduled performance, claiming that the organisers violated his contract. On May 13, the ‘Joona’ singer said on Instagram stories that he was due to play at Musik Fest in Lahore but that the event organiser “failed to fulfil financial obligations.” He said that the team took advantage of them by giving them a grace period to pay the original price before the event.
“My crew is very patient with organisers, especially new ones who are just getting started. They [Musik Fest] made several promises but eventually fell short and utilised an illogical justification to ‘postpone’ this event. We are holding these organisers accountable by taking legal action against them for their fraudulent behaviour and taking advantage of our fans. “He wrote something.
Raheem also recommended in his Instagram stories that his fans and followers who purchased the tickets through Ticketwala ask for refunds and “urged” his supporters to use “reputable online platforms to safely purchase tickets” and not buy physical tickets to prevent situations like these.
Raheem provided copies of the legal notice he served as the event organiser, which was scheduled to take place at Lahore’s Kingswood Gardens.
“The following notification is being delivered about an agreement signed on April 26, 2022, between Musik Fest and my client [Raheem]. I say that you signed the agreement as to the event organiser and that my client was expected to deliver a musical performance on May 13, 2022. “Please read the notification. It stated that the organiser had purposefully broken the agreement by failing to pay the money owed and cancelled the event.
According to the notification, the agreement called for Raheem to pay half of the entire amount at the contract signing and the rest one day before the event. However, according to the statement, the organisers had “demonstrated” their incapacity to make the 50% cash deposit and had requested an extension. In this respect, the legal notification said in clause three, “You made many demands to my client’s manager, Zayan Abedeen. However, according to your agreement, you agreed to pay the initial 50% deposit on or before May 10. I emphasise that this was without regard to the fact that the remaining 50% was due on May 12. My client made no concessions in this way.”
According to the notice, as the day approached, the organiser began to make excuses and request more time, alluding to a chat the team had with Raheem’s management. “With no other option to avoid responsibilities and duties, you gave a false pretence that the event was being postponed,” it stated.
Raheem’s second photo notes warn that postponing or rescheduling the event does not excuse one from paying someone on time. It further stated that when the organiser was summoned for payment, he verified that the concert had been cancelled and that they were thus not obligated to pay the artist. According to the notification, Raheem has proof confirming the organiser’s “unequivocal and absolute acknowledgement” of their obligation. According to his notice, the ‘Peechay Hutt’ singer is entitled to full remuneration because he was not paid originally, and there was a contract violation.
Raheem’s letter said that it was “obvious” that the organisers had no intention of honouring the agreement and had used the singer’s name and goodwill for their own “personal and financial gain.” “profit “My client retains the right to commence relevant procedures against you, including (but not limited to) criminal breach of trust prosecution, rendition of accounts to identify the profits gained by you and recovery amount, and so on,” the legal document stated.
The notification closed with a demand that the organisers pay the agreed-upon fee within three days of receiving the notice.
