Published

Singer, Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin, better known as Bad Boy Timz has slammed his former label, Anonymous Music with N200m lawsuit for alleged libel.

On May 17, 2021, a video of Bad Boy Timz getting handcuffed and led by a band of policemen surfaced online. The news was that the Headies-winning artist was accused of defrauding his label and a show promoter in Abuja, Nigeria.

 

 

Later on, a friend of Bad Boy Timz’s swiftly moved to quell the news via a post.

Afterwards, on May 22, 2021, a statement showed up on Anonymous Music HQ, the presumed social media handle for Anonymous Music, a record label to which Bad Boy Timz is associated.

The statement reads;

The management of Anonymous Music is aware of the reports that an Artiste signed to Anonymous Music (the “Label”) was arrested in Abuja for allegedly defrauding the Label and other parties. Anonymous Music entered into an exclusive 5-year Recording and Performance Contract (the “Contract”) with Olurunyomi Oloruntimilehin Timothy A.K.A BadboyTimz the “Artiste” in 2019.

By the exclusive nature of the Contract, the Artiste is not permitted to, amongst other things, engage in features, collaborations, recording of masters (songs), performances and/or production of records/recordings with persons other than the Label, without the consent or authorization of the Label.

The Label since the inception of this contract has diligently sponsored, financed and promoted every aspect of the Artiste’s music career during this period. Under the management of the Label, the Artiste has received national accolades and nods from local and international stakeholders in the entertainment industry.
“We therefore find it quite unfortunate and a sad turn of events that the Artiste and his manager, one Jerry Adibe of Slippery Entertainment (the “Manager”), are suspected of being involved in, what appears to be, the diversion of monies owing, belonging and accruing to the Label for their personal use.
The Label has reported its suspicions to law enforcement; out of respect for the Law and for the love of music and the entertainment industry. The Label has no interest in this development beyond a desire to see that truth and justice prevails.

However, we feel that it is also our duty to inform the general public (including promoters, producers, booking agents and other stakeholders in the entertainment industry) to exercise due caution when dealing in the industry.

This press release is further to notify the general public that anyone who wishes to secure the services of the Artiste or to book the Artiste for events, shows or performances should contact the Label directly at “[email protected]”.

Kindly note that anyone who deals with or continues to deal with the Artiste or his Manager hereafter, without regard to the caveat contained in this release, does so at their own risk. Naturally, the Label reserves all of its legal and equitable rights and will not hesitate to exercise those rights to the fullest extent of the law.

Date: 22nd May, 2021

For Anonymous Music.

 

Responding via his social media pages on Monday, May 24, 2021, Bad Boy Timz posted a 3-page scanned copy displaying the lawsuit he filed against his former record label.

The 21-year-old singer also revealed his new record label, “Shock Absorbers Music” while he captioned the post displaying a copy of the rejoinder for the press release by Anonymous Music on his Instagram page.

The caption reads: “Setting the records straight! @shockabsorbersmusic is a new movement.

Bad Boy Timz and his team demanded an apology from the aforementioned directors of Anonymous Music.

They also demand that the apology be published in three newspapers alongside a payment of N200 million for the alleged libelous video published on Instablog9ja.

It is claimed that failure to meet any of those terms will result in a N900 million libel suit against the aforementioned directors of Anonymous Music and their company itself.
