Darey Art-Alade: I Didn’t Pay Kim Kardashian $ 1 Million…She’s a Role Model



Kim Kardashian Darey Lagos - February 2013 - BellaNaija005

The buzz is on for Darey Art-Alade‘s Love Like a Movie concert.

American music superstar Kelly Rowland will co-host the red carpet at the second edition of the show taking place this weekend.

Just before the D-Day, the music star had an interview with Liz Yemoja on Genevieve Magazine‘s iGroove radio show.

Darey shut down reports that he and his team paid Kim Kardashian who hosted last year a million dollars or five-hundred thousand dollars. He also shared why the reality TV star didn’t wait till the end of the show, her tweet on Nigeria and more.

      He said she was SOMEONE’S role model because obviously there are people who love her and he’s right. Even in Nigeria the apparent land of “morals”, how many people flocked to Love Like A Movie because of her? All he did was cash in on it. Plus as much as I hate to admit it the girl is a magician. She has somehow managed to convert her lacklustre personality, her whiny voice and dead-looking eyes but banging body, and boring fashion line into a media frenzy that people all over the world have bought into. I don’t know how people can handle more than 5 minutes of the Kardashian family on television but somehow it works for them and she didn’t have to do much of it lying on her back. So tell me she’s not a role model for many Nigerian girls who’ve had a tough life and are trying to make a living any way possible.

      I’m a self proclaimed kardashian lover. The girl tries. if you watch the show, you’ll know that the family is aware of all the internet bashing, but they just keep going and doing more things to make money. i don’t like that she did a sex tape, but she said she didn’t mean to release it. even if she did, i think we are all allowed one mistake. it’s not like she’s a porn star. plus the girl loves her mum and is good to her. the girl works hard too. flying around for all this promotions is actually not as easy as just posing for the camera. it is hard on the body. and that family sticks together, which is just the way i want my kids to be

    Role model. kwani just because you are on tv does not make you a role model. Neither does being popular make you a role model.

    ok, I didn’t have the patience to watch the video especially when the title refers to Kim as a role model. I actually had to re-check the meaning of the term. Please what is it about Kim that is to be looked up to that actually makes her a role model? Kim? *confused face* She’s actually one of the many reasons I wish to restrict my children from watching too much tv so they don’t grow up believing that the reward of releasing a sex tape, dating several rich black men, divorcing after several days of marriage and having a tv show that shows you doing absolutely nothing will bring you fame and success. Please Darey, i expected so much more from you. Call her presence a publicity stunt or something else but definitely not ‘role model’ or anything related to the term.

    i am not a saint but i wouldn’t want my daughters to be like Kim.

    The term role model is relative. Some folks look up to her in one way or d other. I admire her hustling spirit. This babe can sell ice to eskimos lolz.

    Popularity does NOT mean role model. I’m still perplexed, how Nigerians are so obsessed with Kim K. These ladies just automatically love her. My cousin told me I should go to one kim k meetup, take a pic then i should buy her a dress from her store since i live in LA and bring it with me. Lets just say we didnt speak much after that bcos of how i knocked some sense into her.

    Yes she’s a role model. Whether you like it or not..she’s some peoples role model, so what is bad in what he stated ? I’m sure some of you people didn’t watch the interview before typing. And who is that dumb to believe he paid Kim $1 million ? Smh !and whether you like it or not..A LOT OF PEOPLE WENT TO LLAM JUST BECAUSE OF KIM..Marketing strategy on 100. I don’t even know how you people come up with this ‘that person ain’t a role model’ thing. This Role model thing is relative abeg !

    Please, Kim IS a role model. Many people have been in sex tapes that leaked and they didn’t turn the negative into positive just like Kim did. So guys, stop hating. Go and make an impact and stop hating behind your lap top screens.

    Kim is the highest paid reality star ever. She earns 1m a month with absolutely no talent. Is she the only one with a sex tape? Pamela Anderson, Kendra wilkinson, Paris Hilton and a lot more have sex tapes but no one hates them as much. She doesn’t drink and go crazy in clubs, she doesn’t do drugs like most of the Hollywood celebs people adore, she doesn’t even have a tattoo. She had sex, sooo? By the way with her boyfriend of 4 years at the time. She is a role model to countless women who have made mistakes in their past but have risen above and made a success of themselves still. Who doesn’t have a past and what makes you better than the next woman on the street.

      Lol…I like Kim because she behaves like a man, in that she keeps things moving and does not sulk or regret BUT you are quite naive……This babe does not make mistakes she knows what she is doing with her mother as her pimp. Kim got paid heavily for that tape to be circulated, being from a strong law family she could have sued or done something but she wanted the tape to be released so that she would attain fame like her then friend paris hilton. Also she was sleeping with Kanye when he was dating Amber and her reggie. She got pregnant for another man while still married, that KW video and so on.This chick basically used men combined with her business savvy momager to get to the top. Now I like her hustle but i can definitely see why people dont value her as a role model, the same one i am sure you criticize other celebs you do not like. Lets face it the reason why black/nigerian girls love her is because she dates black men and is also quite like the average Nigerian girl in this generation, that is she uses sex and men to get to the top.

      Very well said! People are so blinded by envy and hate, all they chant is sex tape when a plethora of others have and are not being crucified. In my own opinion people are obsessed with this girl. They love her but love to hate her.

      cool cat, i love you soooo much. you’re the only one who has actually sounded like a human being with sense on this blog. as for all others ranting, i bet, your private lives(which we all don’t get to know) are worse than kim k sex tape. shes not the first person to go on sex tape. shes not a porn star. she doesn’t smoke, drink excessively, club unnecessarily and she does not do drugs. yet you all crucify her all the time. several times news has carried beyoncy being high on all sorts of drugs before climbing the stage to sing. i think drug is worse that sex. kim k had sex with her long time boyfriend and the guy was stupid enough to release the tape on line. most of you guys ranting hve slept with numerous men without no one knowing. what even makes you think that bella naija, linda ikeji and all other bloggers attacking kim k are saints? is it because we do not know their past. to end with, shes an American and she dint tell you guys shes a BORN AGAIN.

    i bet you kim can kill someone and people would say she is the best. it only takes fashion and big booty to be a hero to young black girls. you just critically think about it. all the girls that are idolized by black girls are always the most promiscuous girls on the planet

      as in God bless you Solo Act, in fact you are no longer a solo act, I am joining you on this one. It just makes me shake my head when i read these comments about her inspiring people….we live in a very pathetic generation….a woman with no talent whatsoever who wears tight clothes and is thirsty for fame and publicity…very sad
