If your music can’t get you the public’s attention, not to worry, publicity stunts will.
The reported relationship between Nigerian singer Oluwajuwonlo James Iledare, popularly known as Jaywon, and Benue State budding singer Imelda J was just a publicity stunt, NET investigations have revealed.
A press statement announcing the relationship between the two was accompanied with pictures of Jaywon in intimate positions with Imelda. NET has confirmed that the press release was from Imelda J’s management team to create buzz for her upcoming song which features Jaywon.
The press release had also claimed that Jaywon bought a Chrysler automobile for the female singer as a Christmas gift.
‘Jaywon, who is more keen to settle down, has proved his readiness by spoiling the singer with a Chrysler automobile as a Christmas gift and recorded a single with her and also paid for the video,’ the press statement read.
A source has, however, told NET that the car was bought by Imelda J herself back in November 2013.
‘She bought the car on her birthday in November last year; she bought the car for N3 million. That same day she received a gold wristwatch worth $1,000 from one of her maternal aunt,’ the source revealed to NET.
Imelda J is a Lagos based and Benue State born singer who made little wave with her single ‘Bum Bum’. She hails from Ogbadibo Local Government of Benue State. According to sources, she is rumoured to be dating one of the political heavy weights in Benue State which give her many contacts and high level clearances.
‘She is a regular visitor at the Benue State Government House. She has top level contacts in the state. When she did her album launch last year in Markudi, the Governor of the state Gabriel Suswam was already sitting at the Isa Aminu Kotango Theater, the venue of the album launch a few hours before the event started. That will tell you close she is to the big boys in Benue State,’ the source further revealed.
Jaywon’s manager also confirmed that his client is not in a relationship with the Benue State born singer.
‘Jaywon and Imelda J just collaborated on a song, they are not dating,’ Shola Ijanusi confirmed to NET.
