Despite speculations that Nigeria’s telecommunications company, Globacom had dropped Nigerian musical duo PSquare, the telecoms company has disclosed that the duo are still its brand ambassadors despite the rancour in the group.
Contrary to the speculations in the media, the network said it has not ended its relationship with one of its popular brand ambassadors, Peter and Paul Okoye.
Few weeks ago, Peter Okoye of the musical duo took to his Twitter page to announce the decision of the group to sack Jude Okoye, their manager and brother.
The issue degenerated into a battle of words as Jude Okoye exchanged words with his brother. The other twin, Paul Okoye and other member of the record label group took sides with Jude Okoye, leading to speculations that the brothers would split.
Peter Okoye has however since apologized for his behaviour.
Also, it was reported during the week that Peter and one of the company’s representatives were involved in an issue that the singer/dancer handled unprofessionally, resulting in their termination as brand ambassadors.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Thursday, the telecommunications company explained that it was in the process of reviewing its contract with its brand ambassadors, and that it had not ended its relationship with any of them.
We have not disengaged PSquare or any of our other ambassadors. We are currently in the process of reviewing our contracts with the brand ambassadors.
Globacom explained that the PSquare team has been a part of its “flagship brand ambassadors since 2010,″ noting that its relationship with the twin brothers had been a mutually rewarding relationship.
We are proud of the role Globacom has played in the rapid upward trajectory of the musical career of these incredibly talented twin brothers.
Globacom has also played a similar role in the exposure and economic empowerment of all the Nigerian entertainers, and others from neighbouring countries, who worked with us as brand ambassadors.
Globacom holds its brand ambassadors in the highest esteem and has a dignified procedure of managing its relationships with its brand ambassadors. Whenever brand ambassadors are to be engaged or disengaged, we usually follow the due process and dignify them by holding constructive discussions with them.
