Musician Progress Chipfumo was today dragged to the Harare civil court by a man who is claiming US$173 for posters and a banner he made for Chipfumo’s show in 2012. The man Luke Chipudhla told Harare magistrate Ms Gamuchirai Siwardi that the musician never paid him anything for his services.

Chipudhla claimed the “Tsiurika” singer owed him US$60 for posters US$30 for the banner and US$83 for telephone bills which amounts to US$173.

“He employed me sometime in April 2012 to make posters and a banner for his Rusape show which he, however, failed to attend.

From that day till today he never gave me anything for my services that’s why I have decided to bring him before the court,” he said.

Chipudhla said the US$83 was for telephone bills since he had been calling the musician every week asking for his money to no avail.

“It seems he doesn’t want to pay me for my services because I have been calling him on his mobile phone asking him about my money but nothing materialised,” he said.

Chipfumo admitted owing Chipudhla US$60 for posters only and dismissed the other US$173.

“I only owe this man US$60 for posters only and I don’t know about the banner and his telephone bills,” he said.

Ms Siwardi dismissed the US$83 after Chipudhla failed to break down the telephone bills.

She ordered Chipfumo to pay a sum of US$90 to Chipudhla for the posters and the banner before the end of June saying failure to do so will see him going to jail for 30 days.
