City FM’s OAP, Benny Ark has said goodbye to his job after getting fired by the radio station allegedly for his controversies with singers Tiwa Savage and Chidinma.
For the former, he went on record claiming that she does not know how to sing but she rather just shouts.
He was comparing her to Seyi Shay whom he said was a better performer and had better stage presence.
That was bad, but then he wasn’t done, accusing Chidinma of sleeping around and claiming that this was the reason Kizz Daniel released his song ‘Fvck You’
That controversy got so bad that Chidinma threatened legal action if Benny Ark did not apologize for his statements.
He did apologize, but also tried to point out that his words were taken out of context. That didn’t seem to be enough though and now he has lost his job.
Benny Ark is yet to release a statement or even react to the sacking.
Nigerians on Social media seem to believe that he lost his job because of his mouth and that his unguarded comments put him in trouble.
There were many examples of these sorts of comments on social media site, Nairaland with one commenter saying: “Irony of life. If true he called out Tiwa and Chidima for the wrong reason, now, Tiwa is hired while he is fired.”
Another said: “This is what happens when you have mouth diarrhea.”
Before now, Benny Ark was married to Ese Walter whom you might remember from the COZA conspiracy. The two separated last year after having two children together.
Walter spoke about the separation saying that she got better after coming out of the marriage and stating that one of the reasons was that she now had space to be who she really is.
We wish Benny Ark all the best in his future endeavours.
