Court restrains Debbie Rise from being a musician

debbie riseA Lagos High Court has granted an injunction against rising musician and Nigerian Idol Season 3 First Runner-Up, Debbie Rise.
The injunction is as a result of the suit filed by 800 Records against Debie for breach of contract.
 
The injunction granted by Hon. Justice Candide-Johnson restrains Debie Rise (Olurishe Deborah Ebunoluwa) from carrying out any activities as a recording or performing artist. The order prohibits her and her agents or representatives from recording, releasing, distributing any composition, song or musical works.  

It will be recalled that feud between Debie and her label, 800 records began sometimes in July 2015 when Debie requested the label to provide a detailed account balance of how much has been spent on her career so far and asked to be released from her contract after investment on her.  
800 Records asked her to consult her lawyers and also sent the record of expenses expended on her, with series of correspondence exchanged between her and their solicitors  L & A – Legal Consultants. According to the label, ‘we seek legal redress and interpretation on what has transpired between 800 records and Debie Rise, as the case is in court, we will speak no further’.
