ORITSE FEMI TO BE CHARGED FOR ABSCONDING FROM EUROPEAN TOUR AND CHARACTER DEFAMATION
The ceo of 03 Media, an events and artist management outfit owned by Alex ozone has come out to debunk false statements being peddled around by Oritse femi and his Msn Gang team about the European Tour where he absconded from his hotel room in Czech Republic without fulfilling his contractual obligations to 03 media and Urban Entertainment who formed a partnership to organize the said event.
*BE IT KNOWN TO ALL MEN AND ALL BUSINESSES AROUND THE WORLD*
That Nigerian songwriter and singer Oritse Femi is still under a contract with Urban Entertainment in Czech Republic through 03 Media limited in Nigeria to embark on a month-long European tour of ten cities at the rateof £1500 per show and which he has been paid a total amount of £6500 as upfront payment.
That Alex Ozone of 03 media Limited is a recognized and trusted show promoter who organized Davido's first European tour and has subsequently carried out a hitch-free European campaign for Terry G and Chuddy K respectively before contracting Oritse Femi on this particular tour.
03 Media has never been incriminated in any shady deals in Europe before as being painted by Oritse Femi and his team, there is law and order in Europe and Alex Ozone would have been imprisoned if he is found culpable of any fraudulent activities
That Oritse Femi left with our partner Alex Ozone on November 8th 2014 andlanded in Padova , Italy on November 9th in preparation for the month-long European tour of ten cities. He however absconded from his hotel room back to Nigeria to request an increase in his fees from £1500 to £5000 afterperforming at just two shows and signing all contract papers.
That we found it immature and irresponsible for Oritse Femi and his team to lie to the public that there is an agreement for four members of his team to be taken along with the artist for the tour, let it be clear to the all industry practitioners that Msn Gang is an unorganized venture where there is no division of labour , the Artist hardly travel out of the country for events with his erstwhile manager named “Danku” and his cohorts of fortunate illiterates.
That Oritse Femi unilaterally makes business decisions and arrange meetings without the presence his management team who hardly travel with him. On the issue of passports. The tour was initially planned for August 2014 but was postponed because of Oritse Femi's nomination At The Nigerian Entertainment Awards in the United States where he is expected to perform, We admit that it was initially planned to get two Visas for Oritse Femi and his managerbut the advent of the Ebola epidemic made procurement of Visas an arduoustask, due to the urgency of the event , Oritse Femi was awarded an express visa being the performing artist and he assured that his team is cool with the decision that Danku will apply later which he also agreed to, actions were not expedited on his visa application because Danku claimed he does not have fifty thousand naira(N50000) to pay for visa fee, his documents are still with our travelling agent if anybody wants to make verificationsof our own part of the story. Oritse Femi however requested the payment of the initial three hundred thousand naira (N300000) which is equivalent to £1500 for the first show which we later discovered he lied to Danku that he was paid just N150000. Let it be known that Oritse Femi and his team have been denied visas on three different occasions and we nailed it for him in just three days being a recognized event management outfit.
That this case of breach of contract and character defamation has been reported to the police authorities in and the Nigerian Embassy in Czech Republic and our Lawyera are already working to serve Oritse Femi and his cohorts their court papers in due course
We attached herewith copies of western union money transfer receipts paid to Oritse Femi and Danku his manager who collected the last installment of £1000. The documents include;
