AMVCA: Whitemoney advises colleagues to pay their designers to evade shame

To avoid embarrassment, Nigerian singer and songwriter, Hazel Oyeze Onou popularly known as Whitemoney, has advised his colleagues to pay the designers of their outfits to the 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA).

Last Saturday, torrents of Nigerian and African celebrities stormed the Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos, for the 10th AMVCA.

The celebrities were clothed in splendour for the event.

Sharing his take, the former Big Brother Naija winner cautioned the celebrities to not give room for their designers to embarrass them due to unpaid debts.

In a video message he shared via his Instagram account, Whitemoney said, “I’ve been getting calls about my absence from the AMVCA. How would I go, are you not seeing what these brothers are wearing?

“Take a look at Neo Akpofure’s dress. Elozonam was dripping in an all-white outfit like an angel deported from heaven to go create his own heaven on earth. Saga was like all these pink Barbie gentlemen. His dress was awesome. I can’t match their styles. To make an outfit befitting for the AMVCA, you would spend not less than one million naira and you will still have to pay for a stylist.

“I’m not an actor so I’m not even bothered. AMVCA na pressure. Imagine paying over a million naira for a dress you would only wear once. The ladies were just killing it. Next year we move. I can’t relate. But please, make sure you pay your designers in full to avoid them calling you out on social media.”
