An excerpt of my September 29th, 2016 e-mail to reporter Isaac Daschen reads below and his apology also posted:
Dear Isaac, I respect your opinion but this e-mail is because I wanted to clarify something with you. Do not disrespect me Isaac. I went to one of the BEST Journalism schools in the United States that boasts of famous alumni. The Broadcasting Institute of Maryland trained me on how news is done. It may not be the same in Nigeria where its all lies and fear of being killed. BUT PLS!!! Never ever and STOP calling me self acclaimed" journalist in your stories. You did it again in the Linda Ikeji birthday message story! It is utterly disrespectful! I studied broadcast Journalism with a First class degree graduating FIRST in my class. I have awards from the US Justice department, a Mayor, Governor and White House President Bill Clinton. I am not self acclaimed. Another one of your writers deserves a hot slap from me for writing an article a few months back titled "Was she ever a journalist? " when I announced I was quitting social media before FFK begged me not to. Do not mock my degrees! I have 3 FIRST class degrees in Pharmacy, Public Relations and Journalism. Going to school for 14 years and working full time at the same time was not a joke and does NOT warrant any media outlet to call me "self acclaimed." You need to apologize

I am really sorry for the infraction. It was never intentional. I may have been carried away with the article which was out of this world. You are a well-trained journalist and there was no reason for me to call you self-acclaimed. It was a mistake on my part and I am really sorry.
I also apologize on behalf of Pulse.
Thanks and remain blessed.
