Recently sacked General Manager of Five Star Music Group, Soso, has apologized the publicity stunt that suggested that Skiibii, a signed artist of the record label had died.
In a post on Instagram, Soso posted;
“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. Soso Soberekon…”
Soso was fired two days ago when he was found to be responsible for the misinformation that led the public into believing Skiibii had actually died.
Skiibii in a different post also thanked all fans for their support.
I can not say thank you enough to everyone for the love and support you have generously shown me in my time of trial.
Life is full of dramatic twists and joyous moments and to this end; I thank everyone for the well wishes and prayers. Indeed God always wins.
I would also seize this opportunity to admonish that being alive is a huge privilege and being in good health should never be taken for granted.
Death is not a play thing neither should it be joked over and/or about.
The health scare I went through this past weekend has indeed proven that love binds us all and for that singular reason, I thank you my friends and family for your support.
Great thanks to my FIVE STAR FAMILY: KCEE, HARRY SONGS, EMONEY and the entire FIVE STAR MUSIC.
I appreciate fellow entertainers whose love and respect is unending and to the fans whose support and regards never wavered regardless of the weather.
God bless you all and God Bless Nigeria….”
