Bassey Eyo, CEO of online store, Payporte has come out to counter allegations of comedian Dee-One for alleging that the company refused to pay him for tickets of his comedy show.
The company, in a statement, said it was untrue that they were owing the 2018 Big Brother Naija housemate the sum of N500,000, being the value for VVIP tickets at his event which happened in July.
The company further emphasised that its CEO does not have a business relationship with the aggrieved comedian.
Payporte said they thought the N500K tickets were gifts because they were lead sponsors for the reality show that brought Dee-One to limelight.
Dee-One, on his part, said he had made several calls to Eyo in a bid to resolve the matter but his calls and messages were not returned.
Dee-One had called out Payporte and its owner in quite an explosive, lengthy Instagram post, where he accused the company of owing him about N450k since June this year.
