A few hours ago, Tiwa Savage‘s hubby, Teebillz lashed out at Ghanaian actress, Joselyn Dumas on Instagram, accusing the actress and her new management, Restless Talent of lacking the basic understanding of branding.
Following his post, NET reached out to both camps to find out what’s going on and while Teebillz has characteristically failed to respond, Joselyn Dumas’s management has responded to clarify the allegation.
The TV star’s management said TeeBillz was unknown to them before now and they were shocked with his post.
Speaking exclusively with NET, a representative of Restless Management, Inya Lawal, who handles Joselyn Dumas’s project said: “Last week, we noticed that photos of Joselyn were altered and being used to promote a song by TeeBillz. Those photos were used without permission, we didn’t know about it, so we contacted him, wrote him officially to take it down.
“He had no intentions of taking the photos down until we contacted him. So we said to him, write us properly to ask for permission to use those photos and then send us the song so we know what the song says because he said his artiste was inspired by Joselyn.
“So we were waiting to hear a song of inspiration, but when he sent the song, the lyrics of the song was basically Joselyn’s body and how he’ll give her money and she’ll give him her body, so we said to him that we can’t associate our brand with those kind of useless and silly lyrics. So we said to him, we are sorry, we can’t do that and he apologised.
“It’s also our style to announce any new deal we sign one month after the deal. We signed Joselyn one month ago and we just announced it this week, it’s the same thing we’ve done for others like OC Ukeje, Nse Ikpe Etim and others, so I really don’t understand what he’s talking about when he said he’ll teach us about branding. We never even knew who he was until this whole thing happened.”
