Hip Hop artiste, Skales (Real name: Raoul John Njeng-Njeng) and his manager, Teresa Osarenkhoe, have been remanded in police custody for “fraud.”
Cool FM OAP, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Freeze, disclosed this on his Instagram page, writing:
“Update on Skales and his manager Osagie….. According to @wale_ewedemi an inside source for Baseline records, they have both been remanded in police custody after confessing to various charges of fraud and diversion of Baseline Records funds”
“They are currently assisting the police in unraveling the extent of the fraud running into tens of millions of naira.
“At the inception of the contract, he was given a fully furnished luxury apartment in Lekki in a gated estate, with a brand new customized SUV and a multimillion naira sign on fee.
“The record label also gave him a free hand to select and run his brand, supported by a multi-million naira corporate expense account. Skales behavior has reduced the appetite of the Record label to assist other young talents to achieve their full potential.”
Osarenkhoe had denied reports of her arrest on her Twitter handle on Tuesday but has not said anything about the issue since then.
