The ever gorgeous Deborah Vanessa popularly called Sister Derby has never been this shady and angry before as she attacks Victor Brachie of Joy FM for allegedly playing her audio without her consent.
It appears that our very own self acclaimed African Mermaid, Sister Derby is very upset this morning. She has called out a popular presenter on Joy FM for leaking her voice note.
According to Sister Derby, Victor Brachie called her inviting her for an interview inside the premises of the news outlet.
She explained that initially their conversation to be talked about was on the topic of cyberbullying on the subsequent day which to be today.
Prior to Sister Derby going for the interview, on a phone call with Victor Brachie, she gave her reservations about the interview, journalistic standard and the attitude of some media personnel as well as her views on cyberbullying.
Sister Derby reveals she had no idea that the man in question was recording her while they were on phone without her consent and when she arrived at the studio, an edited version of her conversation with the journalist was played before she sat down for the interview.
According to Sister Derby, she walked out of the interview because after questioning him on why he did that he revealed that nothing damning was said in the telephone conversation.
She has expressed her anger on the journalist as she quoted some constitutions which puts the journalist in guilt if she ever tries to process it before court.
Below is how Sister Derby vented her anger this morning when she walked out of the interview on Joy FM:
Unfortunate true story: Yesterday I was called by a gentleman named Victor Brachie of Joy FM, inviting me to their studios for a discussion on cyberbullying this morning.
Without my knowledge or consent, this gentleman recorded our conversation in which I was sharing my reservations about interviews, journalistic standards and the attitude of some media personnel, as well as my views on cyberbullying.
I eventually agreed to the interview, only to turn up at their studios this morning to hear an edited version of our private conversation already being played on air. His excuse? Nothing damning was said in the telephone conversation. I chose not to participate in the discussion any longer.
The GJA’s Code of Ethics include the following: A Journalist:• Obtains information, only by honest, straightforward, fair and open means• Respects the individual’s rights to privacy and human dignity. It’s been an unfortunate series of events, starting with invasion of my privacy, recording of a conversation without my knowledge or consent, editing of this confidential conversation and playing it on air – all without permission or approval of any kind. I least expected this from a rep of Joy FM’s stature.
This appalling treatment meted out to me should certainly not be occurring in this day and age.

Luckily I got a hint before. And people wonder why we stay away from interviews, when these same people are the ones who post misinformation online to attract bullying!
