Singer Humblesmith sued by former record label
Popular Nigerian Singer Humblesmith has been sued to court by former Record Label, N-TYZE. This is Barely 24 hours after his exit from the Record Label.
The Management of the label filed a suit against the Afropop singer in an Abeokuta High Court in Ogun state.
The 29-year-old singer was accused of contract breach, assault and intimidation over a passport “theft” claim.
The MD of N-TYZE Entertainment, is, therefore, demanding a claim of N10m as damages following the alleged harassment and intimidation meted out to him by the officers contracted by the singer.
Counsel to the record label’s MD said as the artist’s manager, Ovie is by contract mandated to keep the singer’s passport, asking the court to declare the action of the police officers as illegal and unconstitutional.
The suit is also asking the court to restrain the police officers from further intimidating and harassing Ovie, directly or indirectly, while stopping the artist from performing in any musical shows, concerts, releasing any album, jingles and appearing in an event until the suit is determined.
In a Press statement released by the record label, the singer is reported to still be under the management of the label as his contract is yet to expire.
The statement partly reads:
Press Release/Public Service Announcement: HUMBLESMITH is still under contract with N-TYZE Entertainment
Pending the determination of the suit, anyone, corporate or individual that engages, transacts and or contract Mr Ijemba Ekenedirichukwu (Humblesmith) to perform does so at their detriment as such act may be caught up in a legal web: Barrister KESHI ELVIS (N-TYZE Entertainment Lawyer)
