An Egyptian citizen, Osama Mohamed, said in a video that sparked widespread controversy, that the artist, Mohamed Ramadan, was charged with the cost of painting his villa in Marina.
The plaintiff explained that the artist contacted him yesterday evening, and sent him his accountant at seven oclock in the morning, with him the sum of 16 thousand pounds, his dues in full.
He confirmed that the artist’s friend, who was charged with holding him accountable for his work, deceived him, seized the paint’s money, and informed the artist that he and the workers had their dues in full, which did not happen.
He explained that he would go out to the media to rehabilitate the artist, and announce that there was a major misunderstanding.
And he said: “The artist has been sleeping to the extent that he returned me full money.. God bless him.”
The discussion came out in a video clip on social media, in which he accused the artist of owing him 16 thousand pounds, the cost of painting his villa in Marina 7, stressing that he and some of his employees have not received their dues yet.
The video clip was widely circulated through social networking sites, where the site’s pioneers circulated the hashtag “Number One crises” after the title of the artist Number One.
