Feb 11, 2014 – “Iyanya Is A Liar” – Lenovo South Africa Denies Endorsement Deal
Iyanya Lied About Lenovo’s Endorsement Deal “He Is Not Our Brand Ambassador – Lenovo South Africa
Star singer Onoyum Mbuk aka Iyanya has been accused of lying after he reportedly told fans on Instagram of his new endorsement deal with Chinese gadget manufacturing company, Lenovo.
4 days ago, the singer said ““New Product!!! New Ambassador!!! Brand Ambassador!!!! Lenovo!!!! Iyanya!!!! Task Direct 2014 Started #triplemg’.”
To further mess him up, his manager Ubi Franklin confirmed the fake endorsement deal.
‘It’s true, it cost about N150 to N170 million and the duration is for 24 months’” – said Ubi Franklin
A call made to Lenovo headquarter in South Africa revealed the opposite. Lenovo SA transferred the call to a representative in Nigeria named Olumide who said he doesn’t have a clue who Iyanya is.
‘I can’t really say on that. I don’t know anything; I don’t know who he is. Honestly, I don’t know anything, maybe you should call him and ask him yourself’, Olumide told our correspondent over the telephone.”
If care is not taken, this singer might lose his endorsement deals in Nigeria.
