A US woman has accused Nigerian musician Runtown of conning her of $124, 000 (Ksh12.4 million).
Shawn Rene recently took to social media to post receipts, screenshots and a video to back up her claim.
Runtown has, however, come out to refute Ms Rene’s allegations.
In a statement released by his management, Runtown says: “Our attention has been drawn to reports circulating on social media by a US-based woman named, Shawn Rene accusing our artist, Runtown, of fraud. It’s all lies and an attempt to blackmail and tarnish our image.
“We have contacted the Nigerian security agencies including the DSS and EFCC who are all on the matter at the moment and preliminary investigations already reveals that it’s a group of impostors who may have duped ‘Sawhn Rene’ using Runtown’s name. Runtown has never and will never defraud anyone,” reads the statement.
