FACT CHECK: Shane Eagle is not signed with J.Cole's record label

Cape Town – On Tuesday morning local rapper Shane Eagle's name was trending on Twitter with many saying that he had been signed to popular American artist, J. Cole's record label, which is called Dreamville. 

Channel24 reached out to Shane's manger Vaughn Thiel who quashed the rumours and told us that while the Cutting Corners rapper is close to the team at Dreamville he has not in fact signed with them. 

Vaughn said: "We haven't signed with J.Cole's record label. Twitter got ahead of itself and made that story up. We just came off a tour with Dreamville (the label) and we're very close to them but we are not signed with them.
