According to an inside source, Wale_Eewdemi on instagram, Skales who was invited by the police on Tuesday to come and defend allegations brought against him by his record label, Baseline Records, has been detained after confessing to some frauds he carried out. His manager, Osagie who had earlier been arrested is also currently chilling with him at the police station. Osagie was accused of diverting over N13m by the record label. Though she took to her twitter page on Tuesday afternoon to confirm indeed she was at a police station, she further said, she was not in anyway involved in the fraud she is been accused off and the police have not stopped her from leaving. Here’s what Wale wrote on his instagram page. His words right after the cut..
“Skales and His Manager Osagie have 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 multimillion naira corporate expense account.
Skales behavior has reduced the appetite of the Record label to assist other young talents to achieve their full potential.”
