Popular Nigerian Fashion designer Luminee has reacted to the viral video of her maltreating her househelp.
In a video that surfaced on the internet over the weekend, the popular designer’s househelp was seen kneeling outside of the house under the sun.
She however denied asking her to do so and insisted it was the househelp’s uncle that made her kneel under the sun.
Read her statement:
It has come to my notice that a post was made about myself and the Luminee brand about an unfair treatment of my assistant who was was instructed to kneel outside my house.
First of all, I will like to let everyone know that I wasn’t the one who told her to kneel outside, under the sun.
Secondly, she was punished by her uncle who introduced her to me because of integrity issue; please watch the video to the end.
I always treat my workers like family members; we hangout, 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 own 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❤❤❤❤
