Smith alleges that 21 Savage – legally known a She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph– accepted a payment of $16,500 for a Sept. 4, 2016, concert at Club Bo’Maz in Hinesville, but never performed.
The rapper, 26, is alleged to have caused “damage to the property of the event’s venue as he departed” and for “sneaking out of the venue after getting paid."
Smith’s filing also notes that 21 Savage was granted up to 30 complimentary admissions for his guest list at a cost of $1,200. Additional monies were spent on security and concert production, such as sound and lighting.
Smith filed for a warrant in October 2016, but didn’t pursue the matter until 21 Savage was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Feb. 3 for overstaying his visa and residing in the country illegally. The rapper spent 10 days in the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla before a federal immigration judge in Atlanta approved his release on a $100,000 bond.
