Nigerian Rapper, Illbliss has cleared the air surrounding the purported arrest of friend and business partner, Clarence Peters over the death of video vixen Kodak.
Reports have it that the vixen died while on set with the popular video director but the rapper in an interview with Collins Teke on Nigerian Info said Clarence was not working when the incident happened.
“Clarence hasn’t shot any music video since the end of February. He kept the entire office shut down; he kept clients at bay. There were even TV commercials to shoot but he didn’t touch any. Clarence just said, let us be careful with this COVID situation[sic]. We used to even make jest on the phone that you (Clarence) have now become a COVID consultant.
The musician insists Clarence has nothing to hide and would not be careless to throw away years of hard work. “Clarance went to the police himself,” Illbliss told Collins.
“He called me the morning after this happened and I told him to follow due process, get an autopsy report and Clarence went ahead.”
“We’re a very mindful company. The Health and Safety procedures are scary. Sometimes I tell Clarence that we’re behaving like a factory, every time we’re looking at wires, we’re looking at this, we’re always trying to protect staff.”
The rapper lamented the statement released by the police which suggested that this was a murder investigation calling it a “stupid dumb statement” that was “not founded on facts.”
“You wake up and in a week, you tarnish so many years, over a decade of hard work. What about the brands we work with, did you guys think about this?”
Illbliss also blamed “the blogs” for the negative things written about Peters and hopes they “keep the same energy when the autopsy report comes out and Clarance is free to go.”
The video director himself had explained in an Instagram post that he was not under arrest by the police. He detailed the sequence of events that led to him being kept in Police custody.
