Runtown Flaunts His Love For Model Adut Akech in New Video
Nigerian singer-songwriter Douglas Jack Agu — more widely known by his stage name Runtown — is a main player in music’s afro-funk genre.
He’s been laying low since his last release in January (a dance-inducing track, titled
“Body Riddim” featuring Darkovibes and Bella Shmurda),
but just last week, he reemerged with his comeback single “Kini Issue” — a matter-of-fact ode to his all-encompassing love life.
Animated by harmonious instrumentals and bouncing synths, the track fuses
jazz components with textured layers that place Runtown’s lyrics at its forefront.
“Say me no want no negativity in life/ Cyaan never let nobody take my wife,” he sings,
pointing to his serious relationship (and rumored engagement) with supermodel Adut Akech,
who also happens to star in the accompanying music video, out today.
“Unconditional love is what keeps the world going around,” he told PAPER of the song’s message.

“No matter the issue, there’s always a solution.”
“My experiences and opportunities that music has created have most definitely elevated my mind and opinions to certain topics,” Runtown said.
“My music is my lifestyle and as I grow as a person, I infuse every aspect of development to my craft.”
