A music company named Supafly Entertainment sued Nikko and wife Margo Simms back in 2008.

Supafly explained in their lawsuit that they were working with a new band named Test Drive along with Nikko and Margo. However, the company says they fronted all the cash for the band to be paid to record an album — including promotions, studio time, song writers, production, website etc.

The company said that they then got an offer from Universal Music to sign the band, but Nikko and Margo started making questionable business moves behind the scenes to cut Supafly out of the picture and make a deal without them. For the full story, visit theJasmineBRAND.com.
