TROUBLE! Court slams Runtown with an Interim injunction over breach of contract .

For the second time in 2 years, Eric Many, the record label that signed Nigerian popstar, Runtown has filed an injunction at a Federal High court against the singer for breach of contract.

The label served Runtown the court papers a few days back Suit No: FHC/L/CS/267/2018 with a statement that partly reads, 'Runtown has been deliberately breaching his contract with us (Eric Many) for a while and despite our many appeals to him he has refused to bulge. .

He went for a show in Las Vegas since January 13th, 2018 and has since decided to withdraw all obligations of his contract. He has steadily been recording an album without the consent and approval of his record label'.

According to the statement of claim filed at the Federal High Court, by Eric Many claim the sum of N114,456,670 has been invested into the development of Runtown.

Though Runtown's record deal with Eric Many is due to expire at some point this year, the label says he still owes the company alot of money including the money for the Lamborghini Gallardo and and also an album that must be released.

They also claimed he has been doing numerous collaborations with several artists without getting the written approval of the label and as a result, no royalties have come back to the label from any of these collaborations. .

The label also confirms sacking his current manager, Ifeanyi Nwunne saying, 'He is more of a drug addict that smokes marijuana round the clock.’

Eric Many is seeking the sum of "N65m being General Damages against Runtown  for infringement of copyright to the collaborative musical works "Call Me" and "Weekend" as well as N5m as costs of this action.

This will be the second time Runtown has had to face off with his label. In May 2016,  he was sued on allegations that he signs up, concludes and attends musical shows without the knowledge of the label. He later went back to the label to apologize and the case was settled out of court.
