– A Nigerian stylist has taken to social media to call out celebrity stylist Swanky Jerry for taking credit of his works
– In the post which he shared on Instagram, he claimed Swanky took credit for BBNaija Ike’s recent look even though he did it
– The stylist identified as John Angel, also made mention of other celebrities he worked with that Swanky ended up taking the credit for
It appears there may be drama brewing as popular Nigerian celebrity stylist Swanky Jerry was recently called out and accused of stealing the credit for other people’s works by another stylist identified as John Angel.
The young man who took to Instagram to cry out, wrote in detailed narration how Swanky made it a habit of taking credit for his works with celebrities ranging from Timaya to Dbanj and most recently, BBNaija star Ike’s look for #BamTeddy2019.
He wrote: “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_ikeonyema when 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!”

Ike was also not spared in the drama as John also accused him of lacking integrity to stand up for the truth as he also gave the styling credit to Swanky instead of him, who was responsible for his look to the wedding.
Read post below:
“@iam_ikeonyema , I tried to be civil with you by sending you a message first to express my displeasure but you overlooked everything I explained and still gave my credit to someone else. You have edited your caption countless times which reflects your lack of integrity and good conscience. I came through for you in spite of the short notice and did everything I could to ensure I got you the best, still you undermined my effort.
I would always demand payment before service but I made an exception for you out of the goodness of my heart and to ensure you had something reputable to wear. You didn’t pay me, yet I supplied everything without hesitation. Where was Swanky when I was at your house doing the fitting ?! I curated the whole look from inception, so give respect where it’s due. You keep s#cking up to Swanky which is disappointing. I understand that he does stuff for you for free but that shouldn’t completely destroy your conscience.
Hopefully, you enjoyed your trip and the feeling of being best dressed. I’d need my outfit back by Tuesday, along with my payment . Wish you the best bro “
