Ola Owolabi Tenders Apology To Taaooma
Written by MAX FM on January 20, 2021
Ola Owolabi has tendered an official apology to Instagram comedienne, Maryam Apaokagi, popularly known as Taaooma after he accused her of doing a shoddy skit for which she received N1.5 million.
A few days back, one Ola, with Twitter handle @olaondeck, claimed Taaooma charged his client the sum of N1.5m for a video skit that didn’t meet the expectations of the client.
However, Taaooma through her management, The Greenade Company went on to refute the claims in a public statement and took action.
Ola has now retracted his tweet and apologized;
His statement reads;
“Paid Taaoma 1.5m. She shot a video and the client doesn’t like the work done. And her position is TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT. We are not asking for a full refund, but at least a sense of concession will go a long way. 1.5m gone like that. And you guys wonder how Maraji fell off? For those of you asking “what did Maraji do?” Maraji didn’t do anything in this situation and she’s a fantastic storyteller. However, ask anyone who has worked with her and her team, she’s not the easiest person to work with. Hence, the reason for the honest comparison.”
“The above statement was made on my Twitter handle and I wish to use this medium to retract the same in respect to Taaooma. I wish to state that I have not had any personal/direct business transaction with Miss. Apaokagi (taaooma).
From what I have experienced since the said statement, I have now realized that I did not consider all the ramifications before making such a statement. Furthermore, the statement was pulled down from my Twitter handle almost immediately. Please note that I did not intend to bring @taaooma’s reputation into any form of disrepute.
Hence, I sincerely apologize and regret any inconveniences this might have caused @taaooma. Thank you.
