Nigerian On-Air Personality, Benny Ark was sacked yesterday by the management of City FM radio station just weeks after he sparked a controversy online.
According to reports, he was allegedly sacked by the MD of City FM, Mrs Adedoja Allen, over his issues with colleagues.
Benny Ark was seen weeks ago in a video stating that singer, Chidinma was the reason why Kizz Daniel decided to start his #Fuckyouchallenge simply because they broke up.
However, the information by Benny Ark didn’t sit well with Chidinma’s camp which later forced the OAP to tender an apology.
According to Chidinma’s manager, Rasheed Ogunsanwo:
“When she heard the news, Chidinma was just laughing. Left to her, she would not have said a word or written a letter to the radio station or the OAP. It was her management that decided to take the issue up because it was blatant rubbish. If the story was true, Chidinma would have lost her cool.
“Chidinma is an artiste who doesn’t interfere in public issues; she just focuses on her music. It was annoying when an OAP came out to say what he wasn’t sure of. And he said it with so much confidence; that pissed everyone off.
On Tuesday, we wrote to the management of the radio station. We asked them to tell us where they got the information from. I think he (Benny Ark) has tendered an apology. But despite the apology, we would still look at the situation and decide if we should take the matter up legally. It was obvious the OAP was lying.”
However, this is not the presenter’s first run with stirring controversies.
The popular Abuja-based OAP was tongue-lashed on social media few months ago after he stated that Tiwa Savage only shouts and can’t sing on stage.
However, the OAP reacted to the call out by Tiwa Savage’s fans by stating that his opinion is unbiased regardless of whose ox was gored.
