Recall that Johnson Adumike, the General Manager of his erstwhile record label, Eric Many Entertainment, claimed that Runtown and his brother’s secured the US visa though the label but his brother’s refused to come back, thus staying in the United States illegally on expired visa

He said:
‘The  P-3 visa (which allows an artist or entertainer, individually or as a group, to enter the U.S) that Eric Many got for Runtown and his brothers to enter the United States has expired and Runtown’s brothers did not come back causing their visas to expire.
Eric Many reported this incident to United States immigration, so when Runtown and his mother went to reapply for their visas, they found out that they have been banned from traveling to the US simply because America believes that both him and his mother may decide not to come back again just as his brothers’.

  1. A step in the right direction for runtown. But how does one put up a billboard when he is banned from the country

  2. That his picture is spotted doesn’t mean he is there, for all.I can say we were told he was banned alongside his mama except he sorted it out.

  3. Am not surprised at that, runtown is a talented and good artiste, who have a couple of top notch songs to his name, I think it’s a great thing for his to be displayed on billboards in America that shows that Americans appreciate his sounds

  4. If he photo is on a billboard in the New York, it means whatever news we heard about his ban was a rumour

  5. It might be the hand work of his fans or friends to help me gain his again into the United States of America, good luck to him

  6. American embassy can still lift the ban on him if found truly worthy of discipline, anyway his friends might have worked that out to allow them grant him entry again in U.S.A

  7. At least they are beginning to have a good impression about the singer.. I’m positive the ban would soon be lifted

  8. See wetin false news dey cause. Even i was fooled by the false news that day. Please verify before spreading fake news.

  9. How sure is that pix hope it’s not photoshop and if actually it’s actually real then there must be a mixup up somewhere concerning the ban.

  10. But he was not the one that commit the crime ,then y is he stopped from going to the state?…This is absolutely unfair

  11. A step in the right direction for runtown. But how does one put up a billboard when he is banned from the country

  12. Wonderful! Meaning the rumour was false. Or the united state government have decided to change their decision.

  13. this Seems as a rumor to me prior, but the bill board is my confirmation, but nothing seems bad for been barnd out of US, a lot countries were there, please move on Rowntown.

  14. That may may be romuor,the bill bord must’hv been removed if he is banned from entering the country

  15. It’s actually really kind of confusing . Few days it was reported he was banned along along his mother yet there are posters of him in the US . I hope this doesn’t jeopardize his international image

  16. It’s so unfortunate that you won’t be allowed to enter US because of your brother who has refused to come renew his visa but that shouldn’t stop you from waxing through other countries okay? Keep up the good work as I belive God will definitely see you through.

  17. That is the best way to debunk rumours or attack towards our success…..I guess the Ex-Manager will be ashamed know.

  18. Putting up billboard I doubt would make US embassy change their minds and lift the ban.. But I pray they reconsider..

  19. Good improvement it is clear on the hand writing on the wall even if they banned you from entering their country they can’t stop you from shining

  20. It leaves me to believe that the previous information about him banned from entering the USA, was a mere rumor. Congratulations bro.

  21. His billboards we’re seen in the country even though he was banned from entering there. Why not lets him go then.

  22. I think he need to restructured himself he shouldn’t allowed his fame to got to his head .any its not new he will soon have access again

  25. I hope dey we help dis guy to find solution to is visa that had been expired since he nomally entertain does people’s in u.s

  26. This act only makes him more popular in the industry. brother don’t let it border you move on as the sky is not even your limit. Cheer

  27. Challenges everyday. Paying for the crime not committed is really painful. He has to forge ahead for the main time pending when they will lift the ban for him to enter.

  28. This shows that Nigerian music is going international, not only Africa but the whole world knows the value of music. Keep up it Nigerian music industry

  29. Definitely his works are speaking for him…but I won’t blame the brothers…. If I am the one too, I won’t come back o

  30. Runtown has always been a favorite for me, gives these nice grooves and vibes nigga is a sensation.keep on rolling u are amazing.

  31. He have a couple of top songs to his name, I think it’s a great thing for his to be displayed on billboards in internationally that shows that Americans appreciate his music. Congratulations.

  32. That your brother refused to come back, causing your visa to expire should not stop you from aiming high, You Go Boy! Nothing will stop you.

  33. I wonder what Runtown is going to do now, for his billboard to have been at Times Square means that promotions are already in full swing. Nigerians should just understand that These americans are very Smart

  34. Runtown has always being a great artiste, this is really a promotion to his music career. Congratulations Runtown.

  35. Interesting I would say. Surprising too that Runtown could have in face in Times square. Just only prove that not all rumors can be correct. We’ll hear from the horses mouth soon

  36. Na wa oooooo na another person mistake de cause problem for another person why will someone just decide to do the wrong things

  37. Two contradicting story, how can a person’s picture appear in a billboard after being banned from that country. Well I guess the first story was just a rumour

  38. Runtown’s bill board in US may help him to solve his issues with the US embassy because his bill board in US shows he is still wanted in US.

  39. I ‘ve been wondering what that bill board is still doing there since he ‘ve been banned from entering us?? This is just funny and also an improvement for him.haha.

  40. Good moves by the authorities to track down these fraudsters. If convicted, they must serve their 20 years jail term.

  41. I don’t understand the whole drama does it means that d whole story abt the ban are all lies?

  42. Really? So if he was banned, why is his bill board allowed to stay. It’s a good notification anyways

  43. I don’t even know what to believe again. We were told Runtown has been banned from entering USA.Now this report says his billboard was spotted. Well, it’s possible the billboard was erected in anticipation of his coming.

  44. If truly he has been banned, his billboard wouldn’t have been there.Is just like dethroning a king and still celebrating his work.

  45. They thought it is nigeria that little things like dat don’t matter. His brother has now cause problem for his family by his act

  46. I thought they banned him from entering,so what is the billboard doing there or are they telling us that the new was not real,congrat sha…

  47. His billboard was seen? Though he was banned from entering US. If it is actually so, then it is a great improvement for him

  48. People will just be carrying rumore up and down, how come his billboard is seen in New York if it is true that he has been banned.

  49. I hope this gives him the edge that he needs. Better days are coming . US please give my guy his Visa ooooooo

  50. That is the best way to debunk rumours or attack towards our success…..I guess the Ex-Manager will be ashamed know.

  51. why will the united states banned Runtown from entering the country due to his brothers failure of coming to the states and the visa expired, that is not enough reason for banning him. Hmmmm!! so wrong. even at that what is the billboard doing there

  52. why will the united states banned Runtown from entering the country due to his brothers failure of coming to the states and the visa expired, that is not enough reason for banning him. Hmmmm!! so wrong. even at that what is the billboard doing there if truly he was banned.

  53. He has made a name for himself, and am sure that ban will be lifted soon, by the time his fans start to react.

  54. Someone that has been banned from entering u U S..and why then are they still showing him in their bill board

  55. Run town is a big celebrity
    And he’ll shame his erstwhile manager who is the reason for the ban

    He’s got brighter days than them all
    The U S will reconsider

  56. Runtown is a talented musician. Go guy! Nobody can stop your shine. This shows that Americans like his songs.

  57. What is his billboard still doing there since he has been banned from entering the country well money is talking

  58. I personally appreciate Runtown’s any day, anytime but the fact is the way artists do leave their record label unceremoniously is alarming. He should pay his debts and be free. I watched the video and the MD Eric Manny is not smiling

  59. Runtown’s billboard is a really good stepping stone in his career and would also help him achieve greater heights in the industry but am kind of confused if his banned how come his billboard is there.

  60. People can sit to manipulate news j it St to destroy someone eh. Isn’t this the same person that was rumoured kicked out of Us along side with his brothers… Why is his face at those billboards. Fear humans!.

  61. People can rumor for Africa I thought they said he was banned from entering US why then is his billboard spotted everywhere well congratulations to him he is one if the best musician so far.

  62. I do not see any correlation with his ban and his picture on billboard, he must have paid for it somehow. Americans are not so dumb not to improve their economy, its the artist that was banned not his picture or songs.
