US promoter apologises to Banky W over false allegations
Posted by sportainmentblog
US based event promoter, Eche-Enzina Emole has retracted a widely-circulated anti-EME statement and tendered an apology publicly on his company’s facebook page.
Emole, whose company, Royal Entertainment, was in charge of the North American leg of the EME tour, says the reason behind his earlier anti-EME statements was the intensity of the situation; and information he got from those who claimed to be familiar with the EME team.
Both parties had gotten into a disagreement following the cancellation of the California leg of EME’s ongoing North American tour.
‘The information presented to me was 100% false. Allegations were made about Banky’s character, and while we may have believed them at the time, those allegations have proven themselves to be completely untrue.
To his credit, Mr Wellington and EME acted with dignity through the whole ordeal, and Royal Entertainment would like to publicly apologize for the way we handled the situation. Royal Entertainment would furthermore like to publicly retract what we, or any of our affiliates, have said negatively about Banky W and EME’, Emole wrote.
He continues, stating that his earlier insinuation of Banky W lying about Wizkid’s sickness was borne out of anger and has been confirmed untrue,
‘Furthermore, we would like to address the allegations that Banky W. had never planned to be in California. We have come to find out that this information was 100% false. As you can imagine, We felt betrayed and went on a public tirade against EME, and Banky W.
Sparks flew, tempers raged, and certain statements were issued, on twitter and in the Nigerian Entertainment blogosphere, due to the intensity of the situation at hand… Royal Entertainment acknowledges that EME explained the reason for thecancellation of the California Show and apologized to us. While we areextremely disappointed, we accepted the apology.’
He however confirmed that EME has agreed to refund his company all the monies spent promoting the event as well as fans who purchased tickets, hoping to watch the show, ‘…on behalf of Royal Entertainment, EME, Alore Media and all parties involved, Royal Entertainment would like to apologize to the fans, and furthermore promise that we will make every effort to ensure something like this will not happen again. Thank you for your support, understanding and love, he concluded.
