Ice Prince Snubs Globacom Deal...Chocolate City Denies Deal

Ice Prince and Birdman
According to Nigerian Entertainment Today, during the week, the rapper was approached with a mouth watering deal to become the brand’s latest ambassador because of his recent successes -the release his first official single ‘Oleku‘, his many local and international awards, and his bestselling debut album ‘Everybody Loves Ice Prince’ in 2011. Reports claimed he’s asking for a whooping sum of $1m (N157,000,000) or no deal.

‘He was serious, he knows his worth and knows they can afford it so he turned the deal down‘, our insider at GLO who wants to remain anonymous tells NET.

Most GLO ambassadors are paid within the N10-N20m range, with D’banj and Psquare being the rare exceptions. Psquare got N240m for a four year deal, as reported by NET exclusively on June 30, 2010

Controversially, the rapper’s management has denied the telecoms approached their team. ‘We didn’t get any offer from them, I just confirmed from my team, there’s been no offer’, a rep for Ice Prince says.

Chocolate City, label to Ice Prince released an official statement concerning Ice Prince rejecting a deal from Globacomm

Read statement below:

“Online reports suggested over the weekend that the rapper, real name, Panshak Zamani, had snubbed a multi-million naira deal with the telecommunications giant.

‘Chocolate City’s management have moved quickly to deny the reports saying there is no truth in the matter.’

‘We were just as surprised as anybody when we read the news of  Ice Prince ‘purportedly’ turning down ‘the offer’ , especially since it isnt true,’ said Tobi Sanni-Daniel, Ice Prince’s business manager.

‘Globacom is a multi-national company with an excellent track record of delivering quality. Any individual would be proud and honoured to be associated with them.

‘However to say that we have turned down an endorsement deal is false and completely baseless.’

Ice Prince has recently been busy in the studio as he gears towards a highly anticipated album later in the year.  He has released a remix to the hugely successful ‘Aboki’ as well as released a video for ‘Truth’ which has already gone viral.”
