Runtown Vs Eric Many: The Soundgod Fires Back
Runtown has finally replied the latest court injunction with a statement.
In his reply he made it known that his contract with his estranged record label, Eric Many is over.
The statement which is dated, July 4 2018, reads;
''Effective June 22, 2018, the music artist Runtown, also known as Soundgod, shall and is no longer affiliated with Eric Many, Ltd., Eric Many Entertainment, Incorporated, or any of it’s affiliates, associates, agents, assigns or subsidiaries. “
He went on to reply the label’s recent accusations, that he has been disobeying court orders by releasing new music.
“Further, there is NO court order currently enjoining or preventing Runtown from singing, performing or recording music.
"Please be advised that the interim injunction granted by the High Court of FCT against Runtown on 10 May 2018, has now expired by effluxion of time pursuant to Order 43 Rule 3(2) of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja (Civil Procedure) Rules 2018.
The said injunction became ineffective on the 17th of May, 2018” the statement read.
Runtown adds that he is not owing the record label, as the artiste is responsible for paying his own bills.
“We are confident that after this matter is properly litigated in Nigeria and the United States, it will become evident that Eric Many did not only breach the recording agreement severally and abuse its power, but that it has been fully reimbursed for its initial investment and is currently indebted to Runtown for unpaid royalties and revenue.” The statement concluded.
Eric Many on July 5, brought a fresh injunction against the singer on the grounds of contempt of court orders, following the release of Runtown's new single, Unleash, and a week before the release of his next single titled 'Oh Oh Oh'.
This was the fourth injunction in two years served by Runtown’s former record label.
