News: Runtown to appear at Abuja High Court on August 8th for disobeying a Court Injunction

An Abuja High Court has fixed 8th August, 2018 for Runtown to appear and give reasons why he should not be sent to prison for disobeying Court Injunction made on 10th May, 2018.

According to a statement by Eric Many, ‘recall that we served a Contempt Warning from Court on Runtown on 4th July, 2018 after he defied Court Order and released a song. Rather than heed the Contempt Warning and retrace his steps, he issued a Press Release in which he argued that the Injunction had expired. The Injunction was to stop things until the hearing of our Motion seeking to freeze activities until a decision on his status (whether he had discharged his obligations to us or not) is taken. It barred him from performing or releasing songs for the time being’.

The statement went on to add that, ‘the legal advice we received was that Runtown was wrong in his interpretation of the Rules of Court he relied on since he was already served with our Motion and was represented in Court on 31st May, 2018 when the Court adjourned to 27th September, 2018 to hear the Motion and the one filed by Runtown himself! To turn around after that day to proceed to do what the Order barred him from doing, and what the Motion served on him (adjourned in his presence) seeks to stop, is unjustifiable under the 7-Days Rule he relied upon. That could probably apply to a person against whom an interim injunction was obtained without more’.

‘Based on this, we have done two things: One, we have obtained a ‘FORM 49’ against him to explain why he should not be sent to prison, especially when he continued to publicize fixtures for shows in Canada, Namibia, Europe etc and threaten to release more songs, both actions in defiance of the Court Order. The application (now fixed for 8th August) has been served on him in the Punch as ordered by the Court. Two, since we will not allow him to continue to mock the Court Order we have applied and obtained a new Injunction to stop his actions to protect the Contempt Case. The new injunction bars him from his threatened defiant actions in Canada, Namibia, Europe etc. We believe the new Injunction has not also ‘expired’ and hope he respects the Court this time. 

 

Please bear in mind that our main case in Court boils down to whether Runtown has discharged his monetary obligations to us and delivered one Album to us as spelt out in our Contract. He has responded, so it will be good to allow the Court to decide what each party filed. Let both sides apply restraint. As we always say, Ericmany Limited will continue to follow the judicial process. We have confidence in the Rule of Law and will continue to patiently follow the due process until the wrong done to us by Runtown after our heavy investment on him is redressed’.

News: Huge blow for Chelsea as Everton refuse to sell Jordan Pickford

News: Huge blow for Chelsea as Everton refuse to sell Jordan Pickford News: Huge blow for Chelsea as Everton refuse to sell Jordan

– The England goalkeeper was fantastic at the World Cup – The Blues will play Manchester City in the Community Shield Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has been dealt a blow in his pursuit of England number one Jordan Pickford. The Italian tactician is in the market for a new goalkeeper with Thibaut Courtois expected to join Real Madrid in the coming days. The Blues have been linked with a number goalies including Jack Butland and Kasper Schmeichel, as well as Alisson, who joined Liverpool last week.
Chelsea have identified Pickford as their priority target following his stunning World Cup performances for England. But according to Goal, Everton are determined to hang on to the 24-year-old and will reject any offer from his suitors. The Toffees signed Pickford from Sunderland last summer for £30m and would likely make a significant profit if they chose to cash in. However new boss Marco Silva has invested well this summer and does not want to lose any key players as he looks to finish in Premier League top six. Chelsea may now be forced to look elsewhere for Courtois’ replacement this summer as the transfer window in England ends in two weeks.
The Belgium international reportedly stalled on a new contract offer at Stamford Bridge and is keen to be reunited with his children, who live in the Spanish capital. The Blues are desperate for fresh legs as they look to bounce back from a disappointing final season under Antonio Conte. Chelsea will meet Manchester City at Wembley for the Community Shield, before they kick off their Premier League campaign with a trip to Huddersfield on August 11. Meanwhile, we had earlier reported that Chelsea have reportedly accepted a £66m offer for Willian from Manchester United and they want Gary Cahill to come with him, The Sun quoting Tuttosport. Jose Mourinho has been linked with the Brazilian for months but Barcelona have remained favourites to land him this summer.

News: I Can’t Quit Music For Advocacy – Daddy Showkey

News: I Can’t Quit Music For Advocacy – Daddy ShowkeyNews: I Can’t Quit Music For Advocacy – Daddy Showkey

Veteran musician Daddy Showkey has stated that is not quitting music for advocacy like some people thought.

Speaking to Saturday Beats during the week, the galala crooner said, “I have been an advocate right from time; music is inside me. I am always in the studio working, so it’s not as if I have left music for advocacy Showkey is still Showkey.”

The singer has been in the news a lot in recent times, for his advocacy against some of the happenings in the country, particularly the road blocks in Ajegunle caused by illicitly parked tankers and containers.

He  shared with Saturday Beats the reason behind his crusade against tankers and trailers parking around the major roads in Ajegunle. He said, “People’s lives are in danger and they are important to me. The tankers always obstruct the road and if there is an emergency, people will not find an escape route easily. Every business around Ajegunle is dying because people cannot access the area easily. I wanted the governor to see what the people are going through and I am happy that he has finally intervened.”

The veteran used his Instagram account to get the governor’s attention to the situation in Ajegunle Donclimax, he said, “The container terminal in Donclimax should also be moved; it is high time we started showing concern over the welfare of ordinary people within Lagos State and Nigeria generally.

Why would they build a container terminal in a residential area? A container terminal is supposed to be close to a seaport. I will keep advocating for my people, because they are the ones that listen to our songs and buy my albums.”

Showkey also dropped a hint at his new music project. He said that he is currently working on a new single titled ‘Position’ and the song is targeted at addressing some of the major ills in country.

– Peter Okoye of former Psquare group has revealed one of the reasons he separated from his brother – He said that his brother Paul would insult his wife and kids and expect a Psquare performance moments later – Peter added that it was the disrespect directed towards himself and his family that pushed him to quit Months after Psquare separated, Peter Okoye who is one half of the group has finally opened up. Peter who is now known as Mr P said that his brother Paul would insult his wife and kids and expect a Psquare performance moments later. He explained that it was the disrespect directed towards himself and his family that pushed him to quit. In a chat with Citizen TV in Kenya, Peter who is married to Lola Omotayo-Okoye briefed the press on circumstances surrounding his separation from his brother. Read more:
He said, “In life what we call family value is important “The fans want Psquare but how many times do you want Psquare to come back and break up. “We’ve broken up three times and the same issue is still there. So if Psquare is going to come back we need to settle that issue. Psquare might come back, they might not come back.” Peter said he must put his wife and children first because of the vow he made on his wedding day. Read more:
“I pulled out the plug because I felt the disrespect coming from my family (was) getting too much,” he said. “There’s something we call marginalisation. Don’t ever be a slave because you want to be family. “Psquare can only come back if the respect comes 100 percent. “I don’t disrespect my brother’s wife neither, his family but he does that to me all the time. He’ll insult me and my family in public, on Instagram, and the next minute he’ll wait for me backstage for us to perform together. “I can’t do that. One thing is for sure, I took a vow to protect my wife and kids the day I got married and I stick to that.” We hope to hear from Paul Okoye soon. Read more:

Migos & DJ Durel – Hot Summer

Well look what we have here. Before the Migos embark on the upcoming “Aubrey and The Three Amigos Tour” alongside Drake, which was supposed to kick off today but was pushed back a couple weeks, the ATL trio decide to come through ahead of time and treat fans to a fiery new song called “Hot Summer,” which Quavo warned us about the other day.

“We haven’t dropped that much new music but we’ve got feature shit everywhere,” Quavo told Billboard. “I think dropping a Migos record right before tour will give us something fresh and new to perform would be dope. It’s produced by DJ Durel and it’s crazy,” he added.

Over the contagious DJ Durel-produced beat, Quavo handles the hook and lays down some nice Summery vibes on his opening verse, rapping about hoppin’ out the coupe & being some young rich fly niggas. Meanwhile, Takeoff takes care of the second verse, showing off his double time rhyme scheme and boasting about his icy chains & graduating from his Honda, among other things. Offset closes the record out, and lays down his respective verse, even mentioning wifey (Cardi B) in the process. “Shawty Im player, don’t hit in the daylight/ ’72 Chevelle with my wifey all white,” he spits.

Available now on iTunes, take a listen to the scorching hot new record and let us know what you think. Do the ATL trio have themselves a new hit?

The Chainsmokers – Side Effects Ft. Emily Warren

The Chainsmokers – Side Effects Ft. Emily Warren

The Chainsmokers are rolling out a new single called “Side Effects” on Friday (July 27). The track features singer/songwriter Emily Warren and is expected to be the first taste of their sophomore LP. As such, expectations are going to be very high. After all, Memories…Do Not Open topped the Billboard 200 and produced the hit singles “Paris” and “Something Just Like This.” The former actually used the uncredited vocals of Emily, so it’s nice that she gets a starring role on their latest track.

Not that the controversy-plagued duo has rested on their laurels between albums. They followed up Memories…Do Not Open with an EP called Sick Boy. The decidedly emo tunes contained therein failed to connect on pop radio, but that was beside the point. The Chainsmokers were trying to show their range by mixing up their winning formula with new sounds and self-recorded vocals. It was a little hit or miss, but kudos for trying.

Bow Wow – Pussy Talk

Bow Wow – Pussy Talk

Bow Wow – Pussy Talk

If you thought Tyga’s “Swish” was the only clip released this week that would blur the line between music video and porno, you were wrong. Bow Wow came through with a brand new song and with it, he dropped some pretty crazy visuals. The track, titled “Pu–y Talk,” is, well, all about making that “pu–y talk…” Plenty of twerking ensues in the video, either solo or on Bow Wow and he flexes in a Versace bathrobe.

If you’re at work, hold off on watching this one because you may get a written warning from your boss. This video is inherently sexual as most bars have to do with either a woman bouncing her booty or Bow Wow describing what he wants her to do to him. With Greenlight 6 and Edicius indefinitely delayed, this is Shad’s second single of the month. What do you think of the auto-tune laced track?

Tinashe – Throw A Fit

Tinashe - Throw A Fit

Tinashe – Throw A Fit

Tinashe undoubtedly experienced a moment of exhilaration when Joyride arrived earlier this year. The 25-year-old faced endless delays and setbacks while trying to release her sophomore album and finally managed to get it out. However, it looks like she is already moving on after failing to make an impact on the charts with a trio of singles. On the bright side, the “Faded Love” singer is bouncing right back with new music. She kicked off a new era and got in a few digs at an ex on her breezy “Like I Used To” earlier this month. The Hitmaka and Smash David-produced mid-tempo has amassed more than 1.5 million streams on Spotify and garnered warm reviews when it dropped. Today (July 27), she unveiled a second taste of new music with her frosty “Throw A Fit.”

On it, she introduces her self-assured alter ego, Nashe. Who is Nashe, exactly? I’m glad you asked. The siren answered that question in a story on Instagram. Apparently, she has “0 chill,” “will steal your bitch” and “doesn’t give a hint of a fuck.” She also “makes these hoes extremely uncomfortable” and exudes obvious Big Dick Energy. Basically, she’s a serious boss. And that divalicious attitude carries over to her latest release. Over slick trap beats, she drops some confident lines. “I’m the shit. I know I’m the shit. Yeah, I’m super lit. If you don’t buy me what I want, Imma throw a fit,” she warns. The brazen and brag-heavy anthem is a bratty delight, and it could easily become a respectable hit for Tinashe.

The “Me So Bad” hitmaker hasn’t landed on the Hot 100 since her debut single “2 On” cracked the Top 40 in 2014. That hasn’t stopped her from dropping promising material (justice for “All Hands On Deck” and “Company”). However, it is clear that she deserves to reclaim a spot on the charts, and “Throw A Fit” may just be her next big hit. Give the single a spin below!
