Nigerian singer, Douglas Agu, popularly known as Runtown has been sued by his record label, Eric Many, for breach of contract.
This is the second time in 2-years, Eric Many will be suing the singer after it filed an injunction at a Federal High court against the singer for breach of contract.
The label stated in a statement issued on Monday that Runtown is recording with different artiste like Del B, without the approval of the label.
“Runtown is recording with artists like Del B without the written approval of the label and without an Eric Many appointee at the point of recording as agreed in our contract.”
The statement also said Runtown has also been appearing in venues and collecting appearance fees without the approval of the label.
“Runtown has also been appearing in venues and collecting appearance fees without the approval of the label and also performing in private shows without the label’s consent, which contravenes clause 4.4.1 of his record deal which states that ‘the Defendant (Runtown) can only engage in recording, collaborating or performing with other artistes for third parties or other record companies upon proper notification in advance to the Plaintiff.”
In May 2016, he was sued in the Federal High Court by Eric Many on allegations that he signs up, concludes and attends musical shows without the knowledge of the label.
Back then, Eric Many also secured a court injunction stopping Runtown from performing as an artiste anywhere in the world. He later went back to the label to apologize and the case was settled out of court.
