As the Nigerian Twitterati started tweeting and retweeting the news with some pearls of wisdom on Amber’s mysterious non-booking, the PR Company behind the event, Bobby Taylor, took to PR Log to release the following statement:

Early this morning, one of the major headliners of the highly anticipated show, Music Meets Runway, Amber Rose tweeted that she will not be coming to Nigeria to host Music Meets Runway 2011.

Due to recent developments of Amber Roses nude photos that surfaced on the internet last week, we were in discussion as to what to do about the situation with some of our sponsors who had understandably shown some concern (brand affiliation).

We were still working to accommodate Amber when we read Amber Roses tweet about her not being booked to host Music Meets Runway. 

Amber has indeed been booked and paid for through a reputable international booking agent and we were shocked as anyone to see the tweet.

This situation is under investigation and details will be passed as more information comes.

The show, Music Meets Runway WILL STILL HOLD comes Saturday, July 9 at Expo Center, Eko Hotel and Suites in Lagos.

Music Meets Runway is an event poised & designed to create awareness for the laudable and fledging growth the Nigerian fashion industry which has been placed on the international map in recent times.

The event won’t be all about fashion as 10 musical artistes will also grace the runway, dishing out hits after hits.

It will be a great networking opportunity for fashion industry, professionals including educators, retail buyers, fashion journalists, trendsetters and consumers.

We want to assure the public that we are bringing you a great show with some of the most amazing Nigerian Artists and Designers and that this event will be nothing short of a phenomenal experience.

A press conference will be scheduled shortly and information will be sent to all media houses.

It is quite telling that the release contains the following statement:

The mystery deepens…
So whose head is in the clouds?
Whose done a hit and run pretending to be Amber’s booking agent?
And has Amber really been partying that hard so as to not remember an advance booking from the other side of the world?
It seems we will have to wait till the aforementioned press conference to hear more about The Amber Tales.
