Nigerian Singer, Bella Shmurda has taken to Twitter to apologize to Seyi Law over failing to appear at his event.
Seyi Law had hosted a father’s day event in Ekiti State which had Bella Shmurda and Laycon alongside upcoming entertainers as guest performers.
Unfortunately, Bella Shmurda failed to appear for the event and instead took to Twitter to explain why he couldn’t make to the event.
In a series of tweets he made on the 20th of June, the singer revealed that he wasn’t informed about the event in time and that Seyi had booked him through a former member of his team.
In his words;
“Before I proceed to setting facts straight, I want to sincerely apologize to my Egbon Seyilaw. I greatly respect him, his work and his brand and will not intentionally disregard him. I hope we can settle this amicably and go back to doing amazing work as Entertainers together.
On the 13th of June, 2021 (last week), my booking manager informed me that Egbon Seyilaw called to state that he made payment to Tobi Oyedele pka Jiggy, a former member of my team for a show at Ekiti for 20th June 2021.
It is popular knowledge that I am currently working on a project and stopped taking show bookings for mid-June till the release date of my project as I already had some commitments for these dates and needed to focus the remaining time on my project.
As these plans were already made for these dates long before now, and Egbon’s show was only brought to my attention a week ago, there was little within my power that I could do to honor his commitment, despite the efforts of my team and I.
I also want to restate- like I did some time back in March- that Seun Orekoya pka Pumping Sneh (@pumpingsneh) should be contacted for any bookings.
I never at any time held Jiggy out as the person to receive payment or take bookings on my behalf and this continues to be so.
Once again, I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused to egbon Seyilaw. I also want to thank my Egbons @ALIBABAGCFR and @Real_Idcabasa
for trying to help resolve this issue.
Thank you, Sirs.
