According to Linda Ikeji’s blog the organisers of the Music Meets Runway show which Amber Rose was billed to host this weekend 9th July have released a statement reacting to yesterday’s tweet by the model/personality saying she hasn’t been booked for ANY event in Nigeria.
This is what they had to say:
Due to recent developments of Amber Rose’s nude photos that surfaced on the internet last week, we were in discussion as to what to do about the situation with some of our sponsors who had understandably shown some concern. We were still in discussions with our sponsors to accommodate Amber when we read Amber Roses tweet about her not being booked to host Music Meets Runway.
Amber has indeed been booked and paid for through a reputable international booking agent and we were as surprised as anyone to see the tweet.
This situation is under investigation and details will be passed as more information comes.
The show, Music Meets Runway will still hold come Saturday, July 9 at Expo Center, Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos.
Music Meets Runway is an event poised & designed to create awareness for the laudable and fledging growth the Nigerian fashion industry has recorded in recent times. The event won’t be all about fashion as 10 musical artistes will also grace the occasion dishing out hits after hits. It will be a great networking opportunity for fashion industry, professionals including educators, retail buyers, fashion journalists, trendsetters and consumers.
We want to assure the public that we are bringing you a great show with some of the most amazing Nigerian Artists and Designers and that this event will be nothing short of a phenomenal experience.
This whole thing is so suspect. Nude photos are making them rethink their decision…hmmm ok o! They did know this chick used to be a stripper when they booked her right?
And who is this international booking agent they used? They may need a refund cos it sounds like dude has swavved them big time! Bigger international celebrities have been booked without any drama, how hard can it be to be to book Amber for an event? The chick even tweeted her booking info yesterday. Which makes me think she is free this weekend…all they have to do is pay her sharp sharp and she’ll be on a flight out.
