There has been so much of a social media uproar between Merlin the video director and Mel B’s team after her video was released lately. Initially I was not going to write about this but i changed my mind after all( why did I even have to tell you this as if it is important)
However, Karawa Diary learned that the recent Mel B video with Longue Longue which was just recently release carried the name of her manager kay nine as the director of that video. Merlin Caren who was initially the person behind the camera of the whole video and who also played the role of the director during the shoot did not find it funny when he noticed he was tagged co director in the video.
Merlin Caren could not bury his anger inside as he came to lash it out against Mel B’s team on social Media
The story goes that, Mr Caren was hired to shoot and direct this video. During the period when he was supposed to edit the video he was involved in some domestic issues that ended him in the hands of the police. Mel B and team seemed to have wanted the video released earlier than stipulated. As a result, they collected the video footages from him and gave to another person to edit.
According to Merlin, during the shooting Kay nine played the role of the guy who handled the lights and when the video was released he was now tagged the director, I mean He Kay nine was tagged the director and Merlin the second as co director.Caren also said he was not completely paid his sum of 50,000 balance for the shoot which he asked for a couple of times to no avail.At the time this article was being written he had still not had his balance despite the fact that credits were taken away from him as main director of the video. He also ranted that the video was released with all sorts of errors as you can see on this screenshots below. Wala! By the way, why all the huddles? This video had all kind of wealth portrayed in it, could it be that money was spent on all those cars and nothing left for the director or is Merlin just seeking for notice?
Kay nine of course reacted in response to Merlin and said as seen in the screenshot below.
So according to Kay nine, He could not respond to Merlin Caren because they are not of same level. But KD readers, what will you have me say about this?
