A Federal High Court in Lagos has issued an order restraining popular rapper Vector from further breaching his contract with record label YSG Entertainment.
To put it in simple English, V.E.C cannot act in full capacity as an artiste. That means NO recording, releasing or distributing of any song or musical work. He cannot record any music video or perform on any stage.

The injunction documented as Suit no FHC/L/CS/1252/13, filed against him at the said court, was granted on Friday, January 31, 2014, by presiding judge J.T Tsoho.
‘Pursuant to persistent breach of contract by rap artiste Olanrewaju ‘Vector’ Ogunmefun, the Record label, YSG Entertainment Ltd, through the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, have obtained an injunction restraining him from further activities constituting a breach of his Record Contract Extension Agreement and Assignment and License Agreement dated 26th October 2011, duly entered into by both parties,’ the injunction reads.

Vector’s contract with YSG expires in 2017. He started having issues with the label in 2012, with sources saying the rapper felt the label was not going in the right direction with his brand and promotion.

But in a twist of things, NET gathered that Vector has also sued the label and is in the process of filing a separate injunction against them.
‘We also took them to court. The case is ongoing as we speak,’ Michael Umoru, Vector’s current manager, says.
Umoru also adds that they have not been served any letter and are not aware of the injunction. ‘Neither Vector nor I or even our lawyers have been served any letter, so this is news to us,’ he told NET.

Moral lesson to all upcoming artiste that they shld think very well b4 signing one useless long term contract with any record label, cos if they do, they might be enslaved to them till they themselves are very useless musically. And to our dickhead c~~~~~t, pls if they present this type of matter to you, tell them that you have corrupt politicians, and citizens to sentence to long term imprisonment, and not wasting taxpayers on matters that are not necessary to adjudicate on. Huh?
