Skales‘ manager Osagie has issued a press statement addressing fraud allegations from a Baseline Records.
every one by now has heard about the situation going on between skales, his manager and Baseline Billionaire owner, Segun Adebutu, osagie , manager of skales has come out to give her side f the story and why they were both detained for almost 36 hours.
“in February of this year, following a meeting between Skales team and baseline team, it was established that the label confirmed the absence of relevant structures and managerial staff, causing delays and miscommunication. For over a year, they have been recording and releasing music, shooting videos, pushing PR and seeking engagements without any input – material or financial from Baseline or any of its reps. We were however surprised that in May, 2016, the label suddenly became interested again in financials and engagement details.
“But in respect for a subsisting contract, we agreed to several meetings to discuss issues and agree on a way forward.
It was at one of such meetings on Tuesday May 31, at Parkview Estate in Lagos, that mobile policemen came in and took Osagie Osarenkhoe to Onikan Zone II Police station.”
“There has never been, and will never be any basis to conclude that I have been dubious or fraudulent in my dealings with the label. What we have done is to keep our work and lives going on, following inaction from them.
“I was made to sign an undertaking that I no longer represent Skales and Aramide, and that a refund will be made to Baseline which is fine by me. My accounts are also being investigated, which is fine. I hope it all passes and we can all move on with our individual lives. I wish Skales and Aramide nothing but the best,” she said.
