Bad Boy Timz Sues His Former Record Label

Bad Boy Timz sues his former Record Label for libelous publication. He posted a scanned copy of the lawsuit issued against the record label on Monday, 24th of May, 2021.

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

This legal letter is the artistes reaction to a video that was published on social media blogs on the 18th of May by the record label which showed the  artiste in handcuffs, and the headlines read that the artiste was allegedly arrested for ending his contract with the record label and duping them.

According to the legal letter, disagreements broke out between both parties after Bad Boy Timz decided to put an end to his contract with the record label because of “breach of the terms of the contract” by the record label.

“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 shared on social media, BadboyTimz put up a press release stating that he has also terminated any existing contract between himself and the record label. Therefore, any releases coming from the record label should be ignored.

Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin, professionally known as Bad Boy Timz, is a Nigerian singer and songwriter.  He started gaining popularity after the release of the song ‘MJ’ and a follow-up remix that featured Nigeria singer Mayorkun.

The artiste was also featured in Olamide’s hit single titled ‘Loading’ and he won Rookie of the Year at The Headies Award.

In 2019, Bad Boy Timz skits and freestyles for which he received shouts from industry giants, including J Hus, caught the attention of the record label, and early in 2019, he signed a contract with Anonymous Record label and later on Slippery Entertainment.
