Things began to get ugly between the two parties in 2016 amidst allegations of accusations of threat to life. Runtown declared his intention to terminate his contract leading to a lawsuit by the label.
The label issued an injunction barring him from performing at events or recording songs on allegations that “he signs up, concludes and attends musical shows without the knowledge of the label”.
Runtown however denied the allegations in an interview with Pulse Nigeria. In the interview, he claimed that he quit the label due to breaches in the recording contract, threat to life and extortion.
