“Then boom, this ridiculous allegation!” He revealed as he said he only introduced Andrew Ameh after she asked for who could help with getting his son’s music on blogs. “I delivered this, counting on my relationship with bloggers at whar I had even thought was at a good rate and she’d owe me a favour of discounted her rate for a short film I was working on,” Andrew Dro Ameh revealed.
“I didn’t take payola for her music and I did offer to refund as I sent her and a lady who was introduced as her manager SMSes asking for her account number and till date, i don’t have it as she didn’t respond. I later discovered it was an attempt to get at Deji over backing up on another complete agreement with her.” “How she sleeps after such an evil allegation scares me, I guess it comes with playing roles?” Dro Ameh had said.
