That good things is being falling to the side of this ever ravishing actress Suzan Stephanie Peters, it is no longer a story to write about as the saying goes, a patience dog will definitely eat the fattest bone. Before now, the youthful and very industrious actress has never once lose hope to climb the ladder of success in the industry despite the many set back from the already made stars before her, but with patience and perseverance, the actress was able to curve an inch for herself in the industry. But it is very astounding to belief the latest news making the rounds on the social networks about Suzan which is in one or the other tarnishing her image. According to the news, gorgeous looking actress was alleged to have snatched an Idea of hitherto unknown Nigerians youths who’s actually initiated an idea to reach out to the less privileged where Suzan support was required, but claiming to have been the authentic owner of the concert. Here is part of the story;
“it will be recalled that late last year this actress held an event at Civic Center, Victoria Island Lagos, Tagged Susan Peters and LAD, Like every other entertainment celebrity who has embarked on this course,encomiums poured on Ms. Peters, as she made people to feel that she was following the footsteps of her colleagues such as,Tonto Dikeh,Omotola Jalade Ekeinde,Mercy Johnson and many others who have in their little ways given back to the society that kept them in various positions.
Of course, actress Susan Peters has unarguably contributed her quota as one of the good actresses in Nollywood. She has in countless films exhibited her acting prowess to convince teaming fans that she came to Nollywood to make a mark.
Right now, people are saying that Susan Peters and LAD concert for the charity which garnered clamor from all angles was not her own original package as she made people to believe.
According to the source,Ms. Peters made her friends,colleagues and fans to believe that she staged the show to generate fund to support the less privileged children in our society;but the truth is that the concert was not a brainchild of Ms. Peters.
As gathered,the show was originally tagged,LAD Concert for Charity before Ms. Peters keyed into it,and it was originally owned by Damilola Amosun,the 19years old daughter of Ogun State Governor,Ibikunle Oyelaja Amosun who according to the source has experienced firsthand the suffering of less privileged children in her school and decided to organize a concert that will be geared towards improving lives of these children.
However,Ms. Peters never mentioned anywhere that she was supporting this daughter of a Governor by inviting celebrity showbiz personalities to the show,rather she built an image of herself around the concert and garnered cheap publicity.
As gathered the Duchess as she is fondly called by her close pals came into the picture few months back when she went for a make-over in a popular salon in Lagos.
Ms. Peters was said to have overheard the discussion of this 19 years girl and her friends who came to the same salon to make their hair.
According to the source,Ms. Peters gladly introduced herself to this girl and informed her that she as a celebrity entertainer can bring star singers to perform at the event,turn it to a bigger event and enable people pay gate fees to enter,while actors and actresses will naturally step-out to support her.
Indeed,it was a welcomed development for the girl as she allowed Ms. Peters to work with her as a celebrity partner.
According to the source, that was how Ms. Peters learnt about the LAD Concert for less privilege children.As they kicked-off arrangement,Ms. Peters rechristened it,”Susan Peters and LAD” concert for charity,opened twitter page for it and directed attention to herself and top entertainment friends without mentioning the girl’s name anywhere.
As gathered,the fliers and releases she sent around to people never in any part of if mentioned the name of Damilola Amosun as the original owner of the concert.”
Contrary to this, the actress has bluntly come out to clear the way about the ostensible news which she termed as fallacy. Here is her response when she was asked about the allegation. “I was shocked when people began to call me concerning this issue, the news was totally false, I have never for once thought of that before and I will never do that. The children owns the programme and I was called upon to give them my support of which I did, I don’t know where this fallacious and unverified news is emanating from. If you check the flier and the banner we did, you will see my name and the children’s name, the name was LAD is actually the abbreviation of those children. The L stands for Laolu, A for Anjola who is Gov, Ibukunle Amosun’s daughter while the last alphabet D stand for Damilola, you don’t expect me to start narrating this on the fliers and the banners, meanwhile, the horrible news also had it that I overhead the kids at saloon when they were deliberating on how to go about the show before I ran off with the idea, how could that be? which saloon? The kids we were talking about based in oversea. Thank God that Gbolahan Adetayo of News of the People is still alive, he can bear me the witness, he was the first journalist to interview me and also one of the girls whose name is Damilola concerning the show. Just as if I knew that things like this will still occur when NN26 showed the programme without showing the picture of these kids, I then placed call to the person that was in charge of media, and he told me that it was a mistake from the media, so what is my fault with that, was I there when they were editing it, I remember during the strike, a female journalist called me around 5:30am on that particular day, called herself Ifechi, claimed to be a reporter of News of the People, to talk about this issue and a text message which it read thus: Good morning Susan,please I have few questions to ask you concerning your concert,Susan Peters and LAD.Is it true that the concert was not yours,but belongs to the Ogun State Governor’s daughter,Damilola Amosun? Is it true that she got you to partner with her,but you claimed to be staging the show yourself? I kept quiet but I later called the person back this statement; Which kind of stupid question is that, yes I was supporting and didn’t I say that? Didn’t you see my fliers? Out of all they reported there was no trace of truth on it” Suzan blunted.
