Popular Nigerian disc jockey, Florence Otedola, aka DJ Cuppy, has written an official letter to Davido’s aide, Isreal Afeare, demanding an apology for libellous statements made regarding Gelato.
This was contained in a letter dated February 10, 2021, titled – ‘Libelous Statements Made By you, Mr Isreal Afeare, Defaming Ms. Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola, Otherwise Known As “DJ Cuppy” or “Cuppy”.
Recall that Isreal “alleged that our Client has cheated the music artist, Mr Temidayo Omoniyikpa also known as “Zlatan lbile”, out of financial sums legally due him for his contribution to the song “Gelato” which our Client and Mr Ibile sung together.”
Isreal further “continued in public written statements in defence and emphasis of your initial allegation,” which suggested that Cuppy breached the contract.
However, in the official letter written by Cuppy’s legal team, it was revealed that neither Cuppy nor Zlatan Ibile breached the contract relating to Gelato, including the financial aspect.
“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, and neither our Client nor Mr. Zlatan !bile have breached their contractual obligations in any way,” the statement added.
As a result, Afeare’s statements were deemed “completely untrue and constitute a grave libel upon our Client.”
Cuppy, therefore, demands “that you(Afeare) immediately CEASE AND DESIST from all libellous and defamatory statements of our Client, her business dealings and her brand.”
She also wants “a letter to be shared with the public containing a suitable withdrawal and apology in terms to be approved” by her legal team, “a full assurance and an undertaking in writing that you will cease and desist from” continuos allegations.
Cuppy also demanded an indemnity “in respect of the costs to which she has been put in the matter,” the statement added.
According to the statement, Davido’s aide has about five days to respond to the letter or face further action “with a view to recovering damages caused by you to our Client’s reputation”.
