We could say the past week as been quite a busy one for popular US model/video vixen Amber Rose. With nude pictures of her popping up on the internet which eventually led to her losing shows, to the press hammering on her from left, right and center, oh yes she’s been having it bad.
According to organizers of ‘Music Meets Runway‘ the annual fashion and music show event, Amber Rose was expected to co-host the show alongside R&B stunner Banky W, but Amber Rose has come to the public to categorically state that she is not booked for anything in Nigeria. The sexy, sassy 28-year-old took to the popular micro-blogging site Twitter, to express herself to followers who she calls ‘Rosebuds’.
‘Hey my Nigerian Rosebuds I am NOT booked for anything in Nigeria at all if I’m not booked thru firstname.lastname@example.org then its not real‘, she tweeted. ‘I wld LOVE to come to Nigeria if u guys really want me there Pls book me thru Info@behindhershades.com’, she further expressed.
In a E-mail conversation with Amber Rose’s management Behind Her Shades, they also confirmed the model’s tweets. ‘No one has approached us. I am copying Amber’s lawyer, Walter Mosely‘, was the response we got from them.
Could the organizers of the ‘Music Meets Runway’ have contacted the wrong people? If they weren’t so sure of hiring the model’s services why would they have gone ahead to announce so. A website (www.musicmeetsrunway.com) is still up and running and has Amber Rose’s as one of the hosts for the July 9, 2011 event holding at the Expo Centre, Eko Hotel and Suites.
But contacting the ‘Music Meets Runway’ organizers through E-mail, they debunked Amber Rose’s disclaimer, stating that they had indeed contacted the model through the said E-mail address and that money had also been ‘made to her’.
‘Our booking agent did infact book through that email address and we have all evidences to proove that. Tens of thousands of dollars was also made to her as well. We will be issuing a press statement as soon as possible to address the ‘real’ issue with Amber, our Sponsors and the event‘,

The most colourful of Lagos high society stepped out Last night Sunday July 3, to enjoy what turned out to be a beautiful evening of jazz music.
Now in its third year, Sax Appeal delivered almost more than it promised; blessing fans with breathtaking performances from host Mike Aremu, delicious singer Waje, the extraordinarily gifted Yolanda Brown, ‘king of the strings Kunle Ayo, the super talented Judith Sephuma, and Jazz Maestro Kenny G who, backed by his 5-piece band, took guests to heaven and back!
Sax Appeal 3, put together by Mike Aremu Vision and Classic FM 97.3, held at the New Expo Hall of Eko Hotel and Suites, with high calibre guests paying up to a million Naira for VIP tables. Sources say the event gulped nearly N100M – almost entirely through private funding and organisational support.
The event was hosted by Tee A, with support from MC Abbey and occasional appearances by the Classic FM team of OAPs.
