Runtown, record label settle out of court

Nigerian singer, Douglas Jack Agu, better
known by his stage name Runtown, has settled
the lawsuit with his record label, Ericmany
Entertainment Limited.
The Enugu State-born songster who rose to
fame after he collaborated with Davido to
release a song produced by T-Spize titled
‘Gallardo’ in January 2014, had been dragged
to court by his record label over claims that he
collects money directly for shows without the
knowledge of the label.
The label had also accused Runtown of
signing up musical shows without their
knowledge despite the fact that they still hold
the copyright to all his music.
The 27-year-old singer had, however,
responded with a counter-suit claiming the
label’s boss, Prince Okwudili Umenyiora had
been making incessant threats to his life.
Recall that the Federal High Court in Lagos had
banned the ‘Kampala’ crooner from performing
at any event or any form of recording until
further notice.
The NET is, however, reporting that Runtown
and his label have settled out of court with the
help of the Olaniwun Ajayi law firm and a new
agreement has been reached.
After a court hearing on June 14, 2016, in New
York, both parties have agreed that Runtown
will remain with the label for one more year but
on the basis that his contract will be that of a
partnership which gives him more control.
