You Have Never Paid Me Royalties- Runtown Responds To Eric-manny

Posted by Temitope Delano on May 31, 2016 in News · 9 Comments


Earlier today, we reported the story of fast rising singer, Runtown being slammed with an injunction from a federal high court stopping him from performing at any event and recording any songs unless approved by the label. This injunction came about after his former label,Eric-manny sued him.

Runtown, has however, responded to the injunction via  letters from him and his attorneys, claiming he was never paid royalties for his work while with the label and his life on so many occasions has been threatened by the owner of the label, Okwudili Umenyiora.

Runtown signed with his now estranged label, Eric-manny owned by CEO of Dilly Motors back in 2014, where he released his debut album, Ghetto University, which instantly turned his career around, placing him among the top five most streamed artist in Nigeria.

  1. Two years ago I predicted this happening. The young man was on penthauz with phyno, from nowhere comes Eric Manny, an ex convict from the USA, a drug barron! You put ur pen to paper damning the consequences. Ask snoop and Dre about Suge Knight!

  3. Well, I don’t really know what to say or I should just say I shouldn’t jump in to conclusion untill the other side releases report…. Still yet I proudly support Runtown if they are really not paying him “royalties”.

  4. my guy was lk if i had no i should’nt have lft penthauze. cus life over there was lk family my king kong phyno is there 4 me


  6. Dude u have to listen to a honest advice . 1. You have a valid court injunction served on you from a competent court.
    2. Anything you do including rescinding your contract which for the time being is subsistent is invalid.
    3. Why did you wait until an injunction was slammed on you before alerging threat to life( shud have done dat a long time ago my G)
    5. The matter has been adjourned for hearing. I’m sure you will have your day in court. Channel your grievances into appropriate quarters.

    My submission is that you should try settling out of court. Thank me later.
