Chukwuemeka Emmanuel, better known by his stage name Sabinus, has apologized for missing an event for students of the Federal Polytechnic in Oko, Anambra State, that was organized by Crazylegs, a show promoter.
Sabinus, who had previously advertised the event on social media, did not appear at the venue on Thursday, prompting irate students to vandalize it.
Sabinus allegedly conned Crazylegs after receiving a two million naira payment to perform, according to Crazylegs, who called out the skit creator on Instagram on Friday.
The event planner wrote, “Please, guys help me. Tag any blog for me. Sabinus had scammed me. He did not show up for my show that I paid him for.”
Sharing receipts of payment, Crazylegs added, “Evidence of payments and flights. Please you all should come to my resume. Fans are destroying my properties.”
Apologising in an Instagram story, Sabinus claimed that his health issues prevented him from attending the event.
The comedian said, “Good morning my Oko people. I know say una dey vex for me. Abeg make una no vex. I was supposed to come to Oko yesterday for the show with Crazylegs.
“Something happened. My health was so bad. I just avoided the whole thing. I was being just afraid of make I no break down for road.”
He promised to come for the event before the first week of December or refund the money if Crazylegs asks for it.
