Nigeria music artiste Runtown going to jail

The 28-year old Douglas Jack Agu, best known as Runtown, who is a Nigeria singer, songwriter and producer is to  appear before Abuja High Court on 8th August, 2018 for disobeying Court Injunction made on 10th May, 2018. It would be recalled that Runtown has been locked in a legal battle with his former record label boss, Eric Many for some time now.

According to Eric Many, the artiste earlier disobeyed a court order. “Recall that we served a Contempt Warning from Court on Runtown on 4th July, 2018 after he defied Court Order and released a song. Rather than heed the Contempt Warning and retrace his steps, he issued a Press Release in which he argued that the Injunction had expired. The Injunction was to stop things until the hearing of our Motion seeking to freeze activities until a decision on his status (whether he had discharged his obligations to us or not) is taken. It barred him from performing or releasing songs for the time being” a statement from the record label stated.

The statement went on to add that, ‘the legal advice we received was that Runtown was wrong in his interpretation of the Rules of Court he relied on since he was already served with our Motion and was represented in Court on 31st May, 2018 when the Court adjourned to 27th September, 2018 to hear the Motion and the one filed by Runtown himself!
