The news has been viral that Klint was contracted by the Abuja based church to anchor a youth empowerment program after the sum of N250,000 had been paid to him but that he refused to honour the event and has even refused to refund the said amount.
Klint Da Drunk Clears The Air On His Fraud Case
Nigerian top comedian, Clinton Afamefuna Igwemba, popularly called Klint Da Drunk, has come out to attempt to disassociate himself from the messy fraud scandal that has been hanging on his head in the past few days, by saying that the church that accused him, Christos International Church, is actually to be blamed for what he calls a misrepresentation of facts.
But in his defense, Klint said in the first place, the church paid him N200,000 and not N250,000 and that the date he was given was Sunday 23rd March, 2014, and not Saturday, March 22, 2014, as claimed by the church.
Narrating the incident, the Abia State born humour merchant said:
On Saturday, 22nd March, I had a show in Owerri, Imo State and had boarded a flight from Lagos for the function, hoping to connect Abuja from there for the church event on Sunday.
On my way to Owerri, they called to tell me that the event was that day, which was 22nd of March, and that I should start coming to Abuja.
They were begging me to be in Abuja. If they were so sure of the date, why were they begging me? The church told me they would pay whatever cost I incur for my flight to the programme that day.
That I missed the show wasn't my fault, the church should be faulted. At the end of the day, I still went to Abuja on Sunday because I had already bought the ticket. I tried reaching the pastor, but I couldn't.
They claim to be a church, which is supposed to be the most peaceful organization. I will go to that church and I will settle it with them.
I don't want my name to be dragged in the mud.
We believe you Klint. Just do the right thing and let sleeping dogs lie.
