According to TMZ:
Southern Electric filed the lawsuit against Akon, claiming they completed over $344,000 of work on Akon’s $1.65 Million home, including electric, framing, molding work, but he refused to pay $51,941 on their final invoice.
According to the suit, Southern Electric contacted Akon’s mother last November as she was acting as his agent in the deal, but still, S.E. has not received a dime.
They’re now suing for breach of contract for the amount allegedly owed, plus interest.
