‘Do not use my image to publicise your work without approval’ – Adunni Ade warns
You know how business vendors in Nigeria use images of celebrities to publicize their business just to attract more customers, well, Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has warned people of such acts.
The Nollywood actress took to her Instagram page on Wednesday morning, saying she patronizes several brands in Nigeria, but she won’t tolerate request of tags and repost from vendors.
She went on to say, “I don’t look for free items to help “publicize “ or grow your page. I have single-handedly helped a lot of brands grow as well without collecting a dime and also promoting their business which is as my spirit leads”.
Read her full statement below:
I have something I would like to get off my Chest 😊😊
I buy from a lot of Nigerian brands, emphasis on “BUY”
If I happen to buy from you, and we both pretend not to know each other (which isn’t a problem) until after payment has been made on my side, please I beg of you, do not ask for a tag, or a repost. I’m not one of those who look for free handouts for a tag. If I like, I buy.
I don’t look for free items to help “publicize “ or grow your page. I have single-handedly helped a lot of brands grow as well without collecting a dime and also promoting their business which is as my spirit leads.
A lot of brands pay me heavy to have my influence for them. I do not think it is fair on them.
Please note, I don’t like to talk too much. I let “serving” do the talking. I go all the way!
I work too hard for my coins now!
Let us all know when to play o!
DO NOT USE MY IMAGE TO PUBLICIZE YOUR WORK WITHOUT APPROVAL.
