4

On the 24th of May, Fast-rising Nigerian Artiste, Bad Boy Timz, has taken to social media to post drop a scanned copy of a lawsuit he has issued against his former record label, Anonymous music

This legal letter is a reaction to a video that was published on social media blogs on the 18th of May by the record label. It shows the artiste in handcuffs, and the headlines state that the artiste was allegedly arrested for terminating his contract with the record label and defrauding them.

According to the legal letter, disagreements ensued between both parties after Bad Boy Timz decided to terminate his contract with the record label because of “breach of the terms of the contract” by the record label

Also, according to the letter, the artiste demands:

A letter from the company jointly signed by Messrs. Temple Egemasi and Precious Egemasi to the artiste containing a suitable apology for the publication of the offensive video. The said letter to be published in 3 different national newspapers. Payment of the sum of 200,000,000 (Two Hundred Million Naira) as damages for publication of the offensive videos. An undertaking from both the company and Messrs. Temple Egemasi and Precious Egemasi that they will desist from posting such offensive video and/or any future allegation or action capable of defaming the character of the artiste.

After the legal letter was posted, BadboyTimz put up a press release stating that he had terminated any existing contract between himself and the record label. Therefore, any releases coming from the record label should be ignored.
