Ericmany Entertainment Wins 14 Million Naira Suit




Ericmany Entertainment has won a N14,000,000 suit filed against it and its act Douglas Jack Agu also known as Runtown.

The label was sued by Dynamic Minds League after Runtown failed to make an appearance at a carnival in Anambra State organized by the group in January 2015.

The case which was filed on 19 August, 2015, had suit number as LD/ADR/251/2015.

Runtown, Ericmany Entertainment and Prince Okwudili Umenyiora, the billionaire Chairman of Dilly Motors Limited and Ericmany Entertainment were dragged before a Lagos High Court.

Ericmany’s lawyer, Chijioke Emeka & Colleagues [Auxano Law] argued that the group first breached the contract having failed to provide all that was required and in good time for the artiste to make the appearance.

Further, they made a case for themselves saying the group made inadequate and shoddy arrangements, hence Runtown couldn’t show up for the Harmattan Carnival held at Adazi-Nnukwu, Anaocha in Anambra State.

During the trial on 10th May, Mr. Aneto testified for his group. He narrated how Runtown flew from Lagos to Port Harcourt but refused to further proceed on the road journey to Adazi, even after they engaged a police escort.

Delivering judgment, Hon. Justice K. O. Alogba gave victory to Ericmany. The Judge found that the failure of Runtown to get to Adazi in Anambra State and perform at the carnival was justified as the group’s arrangement was very shoddy. The Court agreed with Ericmany that the Dynamic Minds League was reckless about the contract when it failed to book flight tickets ahead. The Court also held that the group did not prove how they are entitled to their N14 Million claim as it did not adduce cogent evidence. Each of the claims was therefore dismissed.

The controversy of the Harmattan Carnival first came to fore three years ago when Dynamic Minds League flooded the print media, social media and several blogs with tales of the alleged breach of contract and its N14 million suit against Ericmany and Runtown.
