Exactly a week ago, news platforms were filled with death tales of Kcee’s protégé, Skiibii which many music followers considered an orchestrated publicity stunt aimed at generating the needed buzz for Skiibii’s career.
Top celebrities and other fans of the label had shared different condolence messages via different platforms before the label released an official statement addressing the issue.
Due to the controversy, Kcee announced the sacking of the label’s manager, Soso Soberekon during a live interview with Do2dtun of Cool FM.
To further clear the air, Soso has issued a public apology and also explained his role in the issue.
He posted on Instagram:
“I’m offering my unreserved apology to everyone,especially Linda Ikeji, all Media houses,Friends, fans, the entire “Five Star Music Group” and the general public.
Following events inaccurately reported in the media on one of the artistes under my management Skiibbii ‘Abbey Toyyib Elias’, that subsequently resulted in adverse publicity to our group.
With my wealth of experience in the entertainment business, I would like to state that events leading to the above misinformation through my channel was due to a breakdown in communication.
I accept full responsibility and this fell short of the high standard that I have always maintained within the industry, thus the reason why I offer this apology.
Going forward, such sensitive situations would be better dealt with.
I AM SINCERELY SORRY.
Thank you for your Understanding.
