These times are not the best ones for Nigerian musician, Douglas Jack Agu who is popularly called Runtown. First, his record label, Eric Many slammed a Federal High Court injunction on him restraining him from performing and recording till he settles his debt with the label.

Recently a tape was released which had Runtown caught with a woman in bed, and he branded Eric Many as the black mailer but they denied and said they will make proper investigation on the act.

Eric Many went ahead to launch an investigation alongside investigative agencies.

According to a statement by Eric Many, “preliminary findings have revealed that the released tape and Whatsapp chat purportedly leaked by Runtown’s label is totally fake and a badly executed stunt by the artist himself. Investigations have led to the capture of a suspect (name withheld) who confessed to using a fake Instagram account to spread the false tape leak on Runtown’s request. We have maintained from the beginning of this saga that Eric Many has a verifiable court injunction against Runtown and we’ll not resort to blackmail or cheap social media stunts as we believe in the rule of law. Investigations are on-going as regards the leaked tape story and we’ll let the law take its full course” the statement said.

Eric Many General Manager Johnson Adumike also reacted to the development saying ‘Ericmany has been vindicated but we refuse to be drawn into media war with Runtown who the label made and will therefore not destroy.
