Why We Arrested Harrysong- Five Star Music Releases Official Statement

Five Star Music has released a statement on why the label dragged Harrysong to the police station.

The label claims the singer was arrested for breach contract and fraud.

Read the statement below.

“It has become both imperative and necessary to state our position on the ongoing misguided and fallacious news making the rounds in the media between our esteemed record label and Mr. Harry Tare Okri.

Sometime in 2008 when Mr. Harry first approached our record label for a music contract, we immediately declined the request when we found out that he had a subsisting contract with one Mr. Kevin Luciano of ‘Question Mark Entertainment Label’.

All efforts then by Mr. Harry to influence our management proved abortive as our position was maintained on grounds of equity, fairness and professionalism.
For further avoidance of doubts on the true facts of the present situation, our management has decided to officially set the records straight, because of negative and pervasive influence being foisted on the psyche of our numerous and well meaning fans.

Our first encounter with Mr. Harry was sometime in 2008 when he approached our management for a music contract. As stated above, according to our findings at that time, his contract with ‘Question Mark Entertainment Record Label’ was still subsisting and valid.

Obviously we declined when we found out that Mr. Harry’s plans were ill orchestrated against his employers, by walking out on them without fulfilling the obligations clearly contained in his running contract with them.

When Harry’s employers (Question Mark Entertainment) got wind of his frantic efforts to desert his contract, a stern and official public statement was issued against Mr. Harry and a certain clause establishing his existing contract was clearly published for full consumption by the general public.

3a. The tussle continued between Harry and his employers till sometime in 2014 when Harry once again approached us, this time very desperate.
We opened preliminary discussions with him but demanded an official document from his former employers relieving him of any obligation or liability with regards to his contract with them.

3b. Our move to do things right and professionally with Mr. Harry earned us a Twenty Million Naira Legal Suit (N20,000,000.00) from Mr. Kevin Luciano of Question Mark Entertainment (Records are there for confirmation). We were joined as co-defendants with Mr. Harry.
Juxtaposing the above with what is going on now, it is quite unfortunate because “Good intentions counts as much as good actions, and the person seeking to do good is as good as someone who actually does it.

3c. Knowing the vulnerability of Mr. Harry on the impending legal suit, we solicited the help of certain well respected individuals in the Music industry to wade into the matter, one of which was our dear veteran Daddy Showkey.

Mr. Luciano having found out our intention from inception to act in good faith, agreed to withdraw his suit against Mr. Harry and our company BUT, not without consequential and settlement fees of Five Million Naira (N5,000,000.00, records available for verification).

We paid this amount solely without Mr. Harry contributing a dime!

It is often said that “When people sense that someone else is vulnerable, they tend to attack, for when the calf falls, the knives come out”.

However, in Mr. Harry’s vulnerable situation, we did nothing of the sort. Rather, we whole heartedly bought all his liability off Question Mark Entertainment Label, and welcomed him as a family into Five Star Music Label, a genuine gesture and decision we are all regretting this present day.
Because we are known for running our affairs professionally and legally, we signed a three year contract with Mr. Harry and certain conditions and obligations were specifically and properly spelled out apart from the terms of the contract.

Most important of these were his obligations to our Music Label, which amongst others include:

That he must deliver at least, three (3) full music albums on or before the expiration of the first term of his three year contract, otherwise the label solely reserves the right either to rescind or extend the contract.

These conditions were never met.

While in the employment of the Five Star Music Label, he must not engage himself in anyway whatsoever, whether directly, by proxy or through a third party in any Music or recording business other than that of Five Star Music. This condition was also repeatedly breached as Mr. Harry has been releasing music, going on tours locally and internationally without our consent or paying the agreed percentage to the label.

Five Star Music wishes to state categorically that this reckless breach of contract by Mr. Harry stands contrary to our company’s work ethics and will therefore be pursued to a logical conclusion using the full instrument of the law.

In setting the records straight, let it be known that before now, the label refrained from instituting any legal actions against him for his blatant breach of contract, just because he was still considered as part of Five Star Music family.

However, his posture as clearly manifested through his lawyers whom have continued to write and make all kinds of assertions and threats to the label necessitated our immediate response for the general public to know the truth and inherent facts of the story. For it is said, that facts speaks for themselves.

We therefore advice the general public to tread with caution and desist from transacting any business with Mr. Harry Tare Okri, as same is both illegal and a total breach of his existing contract with our record Label, ‘Five Star Music Label’.

Notwithstanding what propaganda he feeds the public, we further advice that proper verifications are made from us, as there is no iota of truth emanating therefrom.

Signed

  11. Harrysong is to FiveStar what Emmanuella is to Macangel. He did a lot to resuscitate Kcee’s career and make the music label relevant. It is very possible there was a breach of contract but E-money should also factor the positive things Harrysong contributed to the label. Artists and music labels disagree often. They shouldn’t let this one get too messy.

  12. I think you should be nicknamed “Comment Queen”!…..*You are also known on Yabaleft?….. I hail ooh!!

  13. I have a feeling FIVE STAR MUSIC are pained that Harrysong left them!!..The guy is good at making/writing hit songs!!..

  14. You people should have settled it amicably instead of involving the police, besides you have come a long way

  15. Is and idiot Harrysong that’s one thing with Nigeria the person that help you will turn back and become your enemy..

  16. Looking at how close they use to be and all harrysong has done for the label, bcos without harry 5star would not have been this big. They should have settled it among themselves, involving the police is way to much

  17. Wait, harrysong involved himself in fraud? Wow, that is a lot to take in. But even at that, you guys should have try settling it peacefully rather involving the police… Harrysong is undeniable one of their best artistes…

  18. kcee I pity you…you don’t know how to sing and now you’ve seen the person that can make ur bank account still normal u left him to go… Kcee release another song and see how much money you make….lol…i don’t know y people don’t have sense…

    • vitalis, thats not a nice thing to say because agreement is agreement.. give what belong to ceasar to ceasar. He signed a contract he should keep it, its not about if kcee can sing or not. In everything we should remember the people that helped us from the buttom

  19. Well, I honestly know that we all would definitely want the best for ourselves, nobody wants to be anybody’s boy or girl forever, we all at some point wants to be our own boss which I believe was what prompted Harrysongs action but the truth is, agreement is agreement, Harrysongs knew what was involved before signing up for it, so I honestly see nothing wrong with just staying and trying to complete what u have started with the Five Star Records or better still if he has the cash, he pays them off and goes his way, just to avoid any further irrelevant issues, Harrysongs I know is good and I believe he must have discovered his just working while another man is eating, but they should all be reasonable and come to a peaceful conclusion so that at the end no one gets hurt and they all remain happy… I wish them all d best, and I pray God grants you all the wisdom to settle the issue amicably.
