As Temi Solomon, brother and manager to Mavin Records artiste Reekado Banks cools his heels at the Kirikiri Prison for an alleged performance fraud; Tega ‘Mavin’ Oghenejobo (Don Jazzy’s brother) who also functions as a spokesman for the label has denied that the singer is on the run as alleged by police.
When contacted by a NET correspondent over the phone, he said ‘Reekado cannot be on the run. I still saw him this evening and we all thought the police talk in the media was just bants. I didn’t think it’s anything serious.’
However, when asked about the two million naira alleged to have been paid to the artiste for a wedding reception that he did not show up at, he denied any knowledge of that and offered to call us back to provide more information.
As at the time of publishing this report, he has neither called back or answered any of our subsequent calls.
