Following claims in some quarters that he sold the popular ‘Aye’ song to Davido, Nigerian singer, Runtown has cleared the air.
Popular Nigerian singer, Douglas Jack Agu, who is popularly known as Runtown, has emphatically denied that he sold the chart-topping song, Aye, to Davido.
The song, which was one of the biggest songs of 2014, was sung by Davido, but many industry insiders hinted that Davido bought the song from Runtown in exchange for Davido featuring in Runtown’s first hit, Gallardo.
However, Runtown still vehemently denies that he wrote the song. In a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, he said, “I don’t sell songs; I just write for myself. I don’t know about the claim by some people that I sold the song, Aye, to Davido. It’s absolutely not true. Even Davido would tell you that he did not buy the song from me. Besides, if he bought Aye from me, what about his other songs; did I sell those ones to him too?”
Speaking on the rave reviews he is currently getting, Runtown said, “It all started last year when I dropped Mad Over You. I worked so hard last year, and I’ve been doing the same thing this year. Mad Over You was the only song I released last year because I had to channel all my energy into just one song that would change the game for me. And since then, everything has changed. I’ve had other songs after it like Painkiller, Alhaji, and For Life, which are all doing wonderfully well out there.”
On if he would be collaborating with foreign artistes, he said, “I’ve already being working with a couple of artistes, not just from the US, but Europe and other parts of the world. I have an EP that I would be releasing later this year and that’s pretty much it for me.”
