Cryme Officer threatens to sue Ogidi Brown over contract termination
Cryme Officer, a Former signee to Ogidi Brown (OGB) Music has threatened to seek legal redress from court after his manager fired him.
According to him, Ogidi Brown has to compensate him for ending his contract while they supposed to annul it in five years time.
Speaking in a media interview, the young talented musician who is privately known as Prince Isaac Arko stated that he did not breech his contract for his management to decide to end the contract which he has only spent one year from it.
He indicated that his former boss, Ogidi Brown has to pay him for breaching the contract.
Cryme Officer regretted that he left his other life including his former job to follow Ogidi Brown and his musical career, thinking it would yield fruit.
Before venturing into active music, Cryme Officer said he was an auditor and through his pay he was able to cater for his family.
He however stated that he resigned from his position as an auditor to join Ogidi Brown’s label with an aim to pursue his music career to make living out of it which did not go as expected.
The “Faky3” hitmaker expressed the need for Ogidi Brown to rescind on his decision for the five years contract to end before they part ways, otherwise he might regret his actions.
“Ogidi Brown wasted my time and I believe I will win the case and take the money that Fameye will pay to him,” he added.
Meanwhile, Ogidi Brown in his letter of contract termination explained that Cryme Officer exhibited actions of betrayal and disloyalty and would no longer work with him.
This termination follows a feud between the two parties relating to a social media post where Cryme Officer threatened to quit from the record label if something should happen to Fameye, a former signee after Ogidi Brown demanded his outstanding settlement.
A letter signed by Ogidi Brown to Cryme Officer, sighted by Spot On News said management were disappointed in the actions of Cryme Officer and felt betrayed as his actions pertained to disloyalty.
“You were notified of default under our contract by this letter, therefore this contract is terminated for actions taking over the media against the record label owner i.e. Ogidi Brown about the viral video you made concerning the issues between him and his former artiste Fameye.”
“You are hereby advised to cease all performances, recordings and activities that concern your part of the contract in consideration. Our contract was only a year and same days old but I wanted you to know we greatly appreciate having you on our record label, your dedicated service and contribution to the record label was remarkable.”
“Even though the past year amidst COVID-19 pandemic season was a very challenging one, you harboured no ill feelings at all towards the entire team,’’ the letter stated.
However, Cryme Officer in his response said he has not been served with any letter and still see himself as artiste signed to the label.
Cryme Officer in December 2019 signed a long-term contract with OGB Music in a deal which saw schnapps and eggs used during penning of the contract.
