On Tuesday, May 31, 2016, Baseline Records released a petition written against its artist, Skales and his manager, Osagie Osarenkhoe alleging fraud of over 13million naira.
It was also reported that Skales and his manager, Osagie have been remanded in police custody after reportedly confessing to various charges of fraud and diversion of Baseline Records funds, Cool Fm’s OAP Freeze has shared his thoughts on the issue.
In his words, Freeze wrote, ‘Many of these artistes are from the hood. One small hit and they upgrade their transportation from Marwa and Molue to a 2006 Range Rover or G wagen with 2014 bodykit, then they upgrade their housing from mushin or Aj city to LEKKI phase one.
‘But the problem is they don’t upgrade their minds!!! They do business with intelligent and witty entrepreneurs while using their ‘Molue mentality’, not realizing that a contract is a contract and GRA-GRA cannot break it!
‘The other day DJ Zeez was asked to pay his record label N21m, then the Vector issue, then Runtown was issued a court injunction restraining him from performing and now Skales allegedly sleeping inside police cell!!
‘Upcoming artistes abeg make una learn how to read book, no be everything be swag, no be everything be gra-gra! Please don’t jump and sign your life away for a plate of porridge!
‘UPGRADE YOUR MINDS!!!! Still trying to get Osagie and Skales for their own side of the story so expect more updates tomorrow…. In the meantime remember to read whatever u sign o! And make sure u have a good lawyer’.
