Fashion brand calls out BBN star, Vee for non-payment of N1.9 debt
A fashion brand has called Big brother reality show star, Vee out for refusing to pay a 1.9million debt she owes them being the cost of contract sign-on fees, the loss incurred for a shoot she refused to honour and brand items she took.
The fashion company, Zeena & Zara stated that everyone was stressed working with Vee on the shoot.
A post by Zeena & Zara on their verified Instagram page reads: “When you were calling for this deal we considered as we believed you would add value, little did we know it was going to be the other way round!
“After paying, right on the first day of set, everyone stressed to work with you, we still persuaded them so we could work something out, you looked down on everyone on set including the photographer, yet we overlooked and still waited with you till your Uber arrived so as not to leave just you on-site …
“The brand has worked with a lot of people with no issues, we can’t cope with your attitude because you don’t even know what it takes to be a brand ambassador, and all this should have been well explained to you before putting pen to paper you are out of the big brother house yet you act like everyone on set is one of the housemates.
“Your manager has said you have been gathering the money and paid a part, you still owe the brand a lot of money!
In another post, they wrote:
“Apparently Vee paid 2million out of the 2.5m she was given for the deal she refused to honor. However, the shoot including the items she took cost about 1.4million which she insisted on not paying back.
I mean, how you can sign a contract then refused to comply by posting the shoot done after which you decided to delete the picture of the contract signing. I believe we all understand what that means so since you couldn’t fulfill your end of the bargain, we decided to send her manager a mail to terminate the contract after 48 hours without response.
Now she refused to pay for the loss incurred for the shoot, not forgetting that she made away with items worth 400k including the 500k balance from the ambassadorial deal payment, all tuning to about a total of 1.9million.
Since she is not willing to pay for the loss incurred and the outstanding, the brand decided to use the content from the shoot done so as to minimize the loss incurred.
@veeiye, please note that since you have refused to complete the outstanding, the Zeena & Zara brand will use all the content done on the shoot. This was discussed but you insisted on not paying, in case you change your mind, kindly pay up then the content will be taken down from our page. Thank you.
NB, This post is necessary due to the write up posted on her story.
Earlier, the BBNaija finalist had dissociated herself from the brand, saying that anybody who does business with them does so at his/her prerogative.
