Read her statement:
”It has come to my notice that a post was made about myself and the Luminee brand about the unfair treatment of my house help who was directed to kneel outside my house.
First of all, I want everyone to know that I wasn’t the one who told her to kneel outside, under the sun.
Secondly, she was punished by her own uncle who introduced her to me because of the integrity issues; please watch the video to the end. Still reacting, she said;
I always treat my workers like family members; we hang out, take pictures and do a lot together and I will never ask any one of them to kneel in the sun. Even if they offend me badly, I will rather punish them like I can punish my daughter – Anjy.
Those who know me closely know that it is not in my character to treat anyone badly because I know where I’m coming from and I have never forgotten that for once.
Olorun koni jeka ri alakoba oooo! One love my people”
