One of Nigeria's leading entertainers,Dare Art Alade who goes by the stage name, Darey has slammed the organizers of the fashion meets runway event in Lagos.

According to him, he has not been contracted for the show but the organizers are making benefits for his hard earned name in their publicity. Already, Darey said his Layers are looking into the matter and have also contacted the organizers.

But when contacted, Bukky George Taylor of Bobby Taylor consulting, the publicist for the Fashion Meets Runway, told they have not received a letter from any lawyer.

She also said, " Darey was initially meant to be the official host but we later change it to Banky W. Darey was not flexible with the payment terms. We couldn't have an understanding with his team. At that time, the first set of press releases had already gone out"

The CEO of Bobby Taylor assured us that they would apologized to Darey for the mixup.

Here is content of the disclaimer statement issued by Darey Art Alade today

"Our attention has been drawn to newspaper and internet news

publications, advertising our client Darey as one of the lead
performers at a fashion show holding in Lagos next week.

While there were early talks on the possibility of having Darey host
the show, we wish to state clearly that HE HAS NOT BEEN CONTRACTED to
host or perform at this event.

We do not only find news reports and releases from the organisers
mischievous; but also misleading and unprofessional. And we'd like the
general public to know that Darey is not in anyway, directly or
remotely involved with this event.

Our Lawyers are already in touch with them, hoping they will correct
this misinformation, with the clear stand that if this is not done, we
will be willing to pursue legal means available to us.

Again, please kindly note that Darey fans should not expect to see him
at this show as he has not been contracted to host or perform,
contrary to what the organizers are communicating"

The R&B King, fresh from the UK where he released his first
international single on June 19, is currently rounding up work on his
UK album, as well as a special album for the Nigerian market

Sex is so sweet but dangerous when it is done with the wrong person.That was excatly the case as two staffers of a major telecom company in Nigeria were caught in the web of sex controversy recently.The people involved are alledgely married to different partners but alledge yet having sexual relationships for time now.Recently, news peddlers told that they both decided to take their love nest to a foreign country. Just like the case of Anita Hogan, the Nollywood actress, they both decided to take pictures naked.Some of the photos were e-mailed to us but we decided to post just two so that we won't 'corrupt'your eyes.
