Last week the management of the singing twin P-Square and Soundcity were at dagger drawn over who has helped who in the entertainment industry.
While the issue with P-Square is still raging on, veteran Nollywood actress Shan George has call out and accused a staff of the music station of duping her and her son.
According to George, a staff of Soundcity had collected the sum of N100, 000 from her with the aim of promoting her son, Jaga’s music video titled ‘Summer Rose’ on Soundcity. George said she paid the agreed amount on December 22, 2014 to one Andrew Ameh popularly known as Dro. She said she was introduced to Dro by another staff of Soundcity simply known as Deji Soundcity.
Nine months down the drain, Jaga’s music video is yet to hit Soundcity airwaves.
George revealed that when she challenged him on the issue Dro not only asked for more money but also threatened to kill her son’s musical career. He also lamented not being paid thus his charging for money before musical videos will be played on their station.
According to George, Dro said: ‘Madam no be me say make u go shoot rubbish video for ur pikin. If u do pem, i go spoil ur pikin music career for this Nigeria o. bring 5oo thousand naira before i play the video or don’t call my fone again, we don’t get paid any salary in Soundcity so we have to do our own hustle to survive here.”
George said when she tried to get back to the Deji that introduced her to Dro, he refused to pick her calls.
In a statement sent out by Shan George wrote: “We (Shandel Productions) thereby appeal to Sound City Management to quickly fish out this staff to avoid further…. Like Jude Okoye said, it is the artiste job to shoot a good video and you guys job to play it. And in the right sense, it should be the artiste getting paid for airplay, like they do in other civilized countries. Thanks!”
