Legendary Nigerian singer, Innocent Idibia fondly known as 2baba, has slammed his colleague with a N1bn defamation suit if he does not apologise for defaming his character.
About two days ago, Brymo, in a long Twitter thread alleged that 2baba accused him of sleeping with his wife. He further alleged that 2baba sent thugs to beat him up.
While the Implication singer has kept mum about the allegation, he has sent his lawyers to Brymo instructing the singer to either apologise on all his social media accounts within the next 48 hours or he will be slammed with a N1bn defamation suit.
Brymo shared a screenshot of the letter via his Twitter page with the caption,” I have received this from Innocent Idibia’s lawyer’s, or so it reads… I’ll advise they go to court, as I insist on all my tweets asserted… they are not ‘nonsense'”.
The letter sent to Brymo reads, “We are solicitors to Mr Innocent (2baba), hereinafter referred to as “our client” and on whose instruction we write.
Your publication on Twitter that our Client “falsely accused you of sleeping with his wife,” and that our Client “was responsible for the attack” on your person, which attack “was for supposedly bedding his Mrs or for claiming the spot of the greatest artiste alive,” amongst other similar false allegation have been brought to our Client’s notice.
“The baseless and false accusation has caused unspeakable distress to our client and his family. You have also caused estimation to be lowered in the estimation of his friends, business associates and wilder members of the public and further caused him a significant loss of business.
Our Client will give you the benefit of the doubt, perhaps you were inspired to spew such nonsense after one of such self-confessed episode of “spending days getting high and philandering.” In which case, we demand that within 48 hours of receipt of this letter, you withdraw your statements, and publish on your entire social media accounts an unreserved apology to our Client and his wife.
“Should you fail or refuse to meet our demands, we shall perfect our client’s instruction and pursue redress by seeking no less than one billionaire naira in damages against you in court.”
