|Nairoby Matos – Arise Magazine Issue 15|
- Why we have yet to hear from the Arise Magazine team? My guess is they were not expecting something like this to happen. But nonetheless by now their Pr should have released a statement to let us know what's happening.
- Why the F....k that model had to open her mouth to tell someone else what how much she is making off the show ? Does she know about privacy. I guess she must be feeling really bad right now and might never get invited back to the show .
- Why the F....k local models think they should be making the same as others? I mean its obvious that models don't make the same for the same gig. Naomi Campbell does not make same as other models even though they do the same job. No one is irreplaceable so if you don't want to do the job someone else will do it. They should be paid fairly but it up to every model to negotiate their own contract.
Both sides ( local and international models ) showed their unprofessionalism in this case. If you feel that you are being treated unfairly at least do your job that day and tell your employer that you not longer wish to do the job and maybe you might get something that way . I am was contemplating going to Lagos this time because I am not that far from Nigeria . Due to some personal reasons I decided not to go anymore. I would have been pissed to buy my plane ticket only for the models to boycott to show. Although I am not thrilled about the fact that the Arise team did not release an official statement yet I must also say that this is only their second year doing this show in Nigeria and things happen. This will be a lesson for them for the coming years. If you know more about this story please enlighten us about the situation and also join the fab ladies @Isabel Bezeng
