The spotlight is now on musicians and record label bosses.
After Emma Nyra revealed the mess she suffered and with the troubles Skales is passing through in the hands of his record label, the next victim is fast-rising singer, Runtown.
The pop star and his record label, Eric Manny, owned by Okwudili Umenyiora, is getting messier.
The label has already got a Federal High Court injunction preventing Runtown from performing at any event or any form of recording for the time being unless with their approval.
While Runtown responded through his lawyers by terminating his contract, he has now revealed more dirty details about his relationship with his record label boss.
In a tell-all interview, Runtown disclosed that: “In 2014, I went to London, and the label started calling me and saying that ‘Why didn’t I tell anyone before going to London?’ I didn’t go to London for shows or anything, I went there for vacation.
“When I got back, I went to Mr Dilly’s house, and he started ranting, and asking ‘Why did I travel?’ I told him that it’s just like travelling to Enugu to see my mum, that it’s just London, just like anywhere, that the contract does not state that I cannot have personal travels.”
He continued, “The next thing, He (Dilly) pulled out a gun, and threatened me, and said he was going to f***k me up.
I felt scared and confused. I didn’t go to London to do a show and they found out. I went there for my vacation. So the threats kept going on.”
