Skales and Manager In Police Cell Over N13m Record Fraud


Poor Skales! It is alleged he is cooling his head in a dirty police cell because of his involvement in fraud with Baseline Records, his record company. The money that he is accused of using runs into N13 million. It all started when his manager, Osagie Osarenkhoe was summoned to a Lagos police station over the matter.

Skales and Osagie refused to pay the label its own share from the singer's tours, performances and booking… It was OAP Freeze who revealed that the singer and manager are in cell when Osagie denied being detained.

Baseline insider,Wale Ewedemi explained "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.”

Wale went on to say "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 multi-million Naira sign on Fee.The record label also gave him a free hand to select and run his brand, supported by a multi-million naira corporate expense account.Skales behavior has reduced the appetite of the Record label to assist other young talents to achieve their full potential."
