The battle between Nigerian pop star, Runtown and his record label Eric Manny took a new turn on Friday June 3, 2016 when United States District Judge, Kiyo A. Matsumo issued a temporary injunction, on behalf of Eric Manny Ltd. against Runtown and his manager, Bugu Aneto Okeke, barring all U.S. performances and appearances by the Nigerian pop star.
However, word got out that Runtown who is currently in the United States went ahead with his scheduled performance in Oakland, California on Saturday, June 4, 2016.
investigations however reveal that Runtown is yet to be served with the court injunction.
We gather that he was airborne on his way to the United States when the injunction was given and as at the time of his performance, he had not been served with the court papers.
A video of Runtown’s performance in Oakland is captured below;
Both parties are scheduled to reconvene in court on June 14, 2016 in New York.
So a court in US says Runtown shouldn’t perform in the US and he still went on to perform.
Contempt charge loading.
