Nigerian stylist, John J. Angel, head of De Angelic Touch Stylist has accused Swanky Jerry of taking credits for some of his works.
He mentioned that the stylist sometimes post pictures of his own work and make people assume he (Swanky Jerry) styled them.
He warned the stylist to stop taking credits for his work. ‘This should serve as first warning. Be guided,’ he wrote.
See His Full Post Below:
“Hello @swankyjerry , I have tried to be quiet about this for so many years but I would like you to answer this question, WHY DO YOU ENJOY TAKING CREDIT FOR MY WORK?
Why do you stamp your name on a job you clearly had no business in? For reposts on blogs??? The first time you did this was for Timaya’s ‘Money’ video, you posted my work as yours, allowed blogs repost it such that Timaya himself had to do a post before you deleted it off your page.
“The second time was for Dbanj’s ‘Emergency’ Video which I styled, you came on set after I stepped out to get some stuff, acted like you were adjusting his shirt, took a picture and posted on Social Media, you took credit for my work, I kept quiet again.
“Now you boldly posted you styled @iam_ikeonyemawhen I was the one who pulled outfits and styled him for his Dubai Trip. How are you the stylist? Because you took him to where he tied the Turban?
“I have kept mute for years as I am not one to look for trouble, neither do I care for reposts etc, I care about my work being misinterpreted and nothing is more annoying to a creative than someone else taking credit for their hardwork year in year out.
“This nonsense has got to stop! This should serve as a first warning. Be guided!”
