Some days back, the Nigerian social media space was set on fire after the sex tape of Nigerian singer, Douglas Jack Agu a.k.a Runtown, was leaked.
Eric Many who obtained a Federal High Court injunction on the singer, restraining him from performing and recording till he settles his debt with the label, have also ran a private investigation on leaked blackmail ‘sex tape’ which uncovered Runtown as the alleged sponsor of the leaked photos.
A statement which disclosed the outcome of the label’s investigation, reads in part;
‘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.
On the outcome of the investigation, Eric Many General Manager Johnson Adumike said;
‘Ericmany has been vindicated but we refuse to be drawn into media war with Runtown who the label made and will therefore not destroy.
‘Moreover, trying to use a sex tape to black mail Runtown is just like using a bottle of whisky to blackmail a drunk’ a former Ericmany staff who is very close to the singer said.
When contacted to comment on the ongoing court case Eric Many has with the singer, Eric Many Chairman Prince Okwudili Umenyiora, refused to, saying he would never comment on the Runtown issue openly as he remains the baby of the Label company, and that “after every war comes peace”.
