LAGOS – Babajide Koku & Co, Florence Otedola, popularly known as DJ Cuppy’s lawyer has demanded an apology from Davido’s aide, Israel Afeare.
Last month, via an Instagram post, Afeare who claims to be Davido’s personal logistics manager, alleged that despite the commercial success of the 2019 hit song, Gelato, by DJ Cuppy and Zlatan, the disc jockey did not compensate Zlatan.
In a letter written to Israel Afeare, it read :“It is crucial to state that there are legal contracts that govern the relationship between our Client and Mr Zlatan Ibile; said contracts which very fairly and adequately cover the financial compensation of both artists, neither our Client nor Mr Zlatan Ibile have breached their contractual obligations in any way. The allegations in the statements made by you are completely untrue and constitute a grave libel upon our Client.”
“We, therefore, write to demand that you immediately cease and desist from all libellous and defamatory statements of our Client, her business and her brand.
“Furthermore, we demand that within seven days of receipt of this letter; (i) You write a letter to be shared with the public containing a suitable withdrawal and apology in terms to be approved by us on our Clients behalf. (ii) You provide us with your full assurance and an undertaking in writing that you will cease and desist from repeating the publication of those or similar allegation concerning our client.”
