While fans are still getting around news of the war between Runtown and his record label, Eric Manny Records, another Nigerian record label has just been thrown in crisis. This time, its Baseline Records, home of pop star, Skales.
Gbedu magazine reveals, the label in a lengthy petition dated May 19, 2016 and addressed to the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 2 Zonal Command, Onikan, Lagos, the label claims that Skales’ manager, Osagie committed fraud against the company with monies totalling N13,374,000.
The statement partly reads, ‘Skales introduced Teresa Osagioduwa Osarenkhoe to the Company as his manager and stated her duties to include inter alia tour bookings, strategy and promotion. By the Company’s estimation, from the aforementioned events, Teresa Osagioduwa Osarenkhoe has fraudulently converted the sum of N7,474,000 from this brief period without accounting to the Company or making payments first into the Company’s accounts as stipulated in the Contract’.
Osagie is a respected talent manager in the music industry who has over the years worked with acts such as Kel, Wizkid,Morell, Dammy Krane, Niyola, Banky W and others.
She could not be immediately reached for comments as at the time of this post as her phone numbers were unreachable. She’s however taken to twitter to dismiss reports that she’s been arrested.
