Dilly pulled out a gun, and threatened me- Runtown in a Tell-it-all Confession
We now know that Runtown and his record label, Eric Manny Entertainment are wearing the same trouble trousers. Runtown has spoken out what really went wrong between them. He spoke in length on the life threat on his sweet life and also the money that he wasn't paid as stated in the contract he signed.
Runtown narrates “We started running, we went for shows and everything, and when I requested for my 35%, problem. I never got any 35% on it. They would always say, 'We are pushing, we need to put more stuff (money) to push'. The thing went on until 2015, when I was working on my album.”
In 2014, he had travelled to London and the label started calling him and saying that 'Why didn't I tell anyone before going to London?' I didn't go to London for shows or anything, I went there for vacation. When I got back, I went to Mr Dilly's house, and he started ranting, and asking 'Why did I travel?' I told him that it's just like travelling to Enugu to see my mum, that it's just London, just like anywhere, that the contract does not state that I cannot have personal travels.”
“The next thing, He (Dilly) pulled out a gun, and threatened me, and said he was going to f***k me up. I felt scared and confused. I didn't go to London to do a show and they found out. I went there for my vacation. So the threats kept going on.”
Then he said Dilly was annex-convict in the US “When I was about to drop the video, he called me out of the blues, that he was going to get Nicki Minaj on the album. I accepted, being that a Nicki Minaj will be good on the album. When we were in the US, he kept on calling and asking if we can get across to Minaj. He couldn't come to the US himself because he is banned by the US Government to return to the country. He has fraud issues.”
“He kept on calling about the Nicki Minaj people that he is ready to play. Then he brought a contract extension for another two years stating that if he pays for the Nicki Minaj deal, then he will need a 2-year extension to recoup his investment. I wasn't around then, so the management handed the contract to a guy we worked with, and dropped it there. Neither I nor my manager, Aneto-Okeke Bugwu, were around. He called me on the phone threatening me that if I don't extend the contract, he will kill me, and bury my career, and that he isn't going to release my album.”
