New Babi Bushido, 43, has to dig deep into his pocket. The deputy spokesperson of the High Regional Court of Brandenburg / Havel (Democrat), announced, Wednesday, that the rapper should have agreed to a severance compensation of 1.4 million euros with his former business partner Arafat Abu Shakir (45).
Rapper Bushido and clan chief Arafat Abu Shaker has been on trial at the Berlin District Court since August 2020. Abu Shakir has been the rapper’s manager for years and earned a lot of money with him. When Bushido wanted to abandon him, he threatened and blackmailed his student. This is why the two sides fight in court. The charges against Abu Shaker: Attempted extortion of a serious predator, grievous bodily harm, deprivation of liberty, insult. The Ferchichi family has been under police protection since 2017.
Dangerous combination of private and commercial business
The severance payments are not related to the charges against Abu Shaker, but to the joint property. Among other things, this affects a building complex of nearly 100 apartments in Brandenburg. For this purpose, rapper Bushido created a real estate company with Arafat Abu Shaker, who, according to police reports, has repeatedly been associated with organized crime.
After several disagreements broke the relationship between the two, musician Bushido dissolved the real estate business. Rapper Arafat Abu Shaker was accused of stealing money from the company on several occasions.
In 2018, Bushido applied for registration in the Land Registry as the sole owner. Then the Regional Court in Frankfurt/Oder accepted his request. On the condition that he pays his ex-business partner severance payments of 126,000 euros with interest. However, Abu Shukr first filed an objection to this decision. Now they agreed to settle after all. (cog)
