Ongoing investigations suggest that top Nigerian musician, Runtown is guilty of releasing a sex-tape which he earlier claimed his record label was to use for a blackmail stunt.
According to Vanguard, investigators claim they that the stunt was indeed pulled off by Runtown himself, in a bid to indict his record label – Eric Many.
In a bid to save Eric Many from disrepute, the label issued a an earlier statement to refute being behind the sex-tape when it initially made the news.
The label furthered on by launching an investigation alongside investigative agencies.
According to a statement by Eric Many, “preliminary findings have revealed that the released sex 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 sex 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 sex tape story and we’ll let the law take its full course” the statement said.
Eric Many Chairman, Prince Okwudili Umenyiora, said he would never comment on the matter openly as Runtown remains the baby of the Label company, and that “after every war comes peace”, the Chairman of Dilly Motors, concluded.
The General Manager, Johnson Adumike also reacted to the development saying; “Eric Many has been vindicated but we refuse to be drawn into media war with Runtown who the label made and will therefore not destroy.”
