Runtown Sued By Record Label Over Breach Of Contract.



Eric Many, the record label that signed Nigerian pop star, Runtown for two years running has filed an injunction at a Federal High court against the singer for breach of contract.
According to a mail released by Eric Many, the record label served Runtown the court papers with Suit No: FHC/L/CS/267/2018 a few days back 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.
According to the statement of claim filed at the Federal High Court by Eric Many:
A Recording Agreement was made between the Plaintiff and the Defendant dated 22nd June 2016, the copyright and other intellectual property and cognate rights and legal positions and protections applicable to all works done by the Defendant during an initial period of two years covered by the Agreement, is vested in the Plaintiff.
The Plaintiff will rely on a copy of the said Recording Agreement at trial. 7. Under the Agreement, parties recognize and acknowledge the sum of N114,456,670.00 (One Hundred and Fourteen Million, Four Hundredand Fifty Six Thousand,Six Hundred and Seventy Naira) as “Prior Investment”, representing the sum invested by the Plaintiff into the development of the Defendant’s musical works and records under the defunct ‘Artiste Agreement’, precursor to the ‘Recording Agreement”.
Eric Many in its statement of claim is seeking the sum of:
N65 MILLION being General Damages against the Defendant (Runtown) in favour of the Plaintiff for infringement of the Plaintiff’s copyright to the collaborative musical works “Call Me” and “Weekend” both of which featured the Defendant as well as N5 MILLION as costs of this action.
This will be the second time in two years that Runtown has had a face off with his label.
In May 2016, he was sued 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.
