OAP Benny Ark of City FM has been sacked today by the management of the radio station just weeks after he created a controversy online.
The OAP 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 made 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.”
