RUNTOWN at war with his Record Label. Guess what he did and said.


runTOWNIt’s another episode in the series of artiste/record label disagreements and this one is quite messy.

There has been a silent war since the beginning of the year between Nigerian singer Douglas Jack Agu aka ‘RUNTOWN‘ and his record label Eric Manny Records – a silent war that has just broken out into open warfare.

Sources in Runtown’s camp said that ‘the label has been cheating Runtown of his money, they don’t give him his share of show performances, caller tunes and more but the boy has been keeping quiet about it all along till they threatened him with a lawsuit despite the fact that the label has no structure’.

We further gathered that Eric Manny Records, owned by billionaire businessman Okwudili Umenyiora, got a court injunction seeking to stop Runtown from performing as an artiste, amongst other things, pending the determination of the suit.

Another source in the record label who spoke to us anonymously said, ‘After Eric Manny invested millions of naira in Runtown, he started colluding with his manager Bugwu Aneto, who also doubles as the general manager of Eric Manny, to sideline the label from money collected for shows’.

The injunction obtained at a Federal High Court prevents Runtown from performing at any event or any form of recording for the time being unless with the approval of his label.

The court injunction granted to Eric Manny Records

In response to the court injunction, Runtown reportedly got his lawyers to review his record deal and clauses in it which gives him the right to terminate his contract at a court of arbitration.

In his letter to the label, Runtown claims threat to life, extortion and lack of payment/royalties from performances, ringback tunes and more as reasons for terminating the contract.
