Zlatan: DJ Cuppy’s lawyers demand retraction, public apology from Davido’s aide
Babajide Koku & Co., lawyers to DJ Cuppy, have demanded a public apology from Davido’s aide, Israel Afeare.
Recall that Afeare had set tongues wagging recently when he took to Instagram to weigh in on the alleged animosity between Cuppy and another artiste, Zlatan Ibile.
The popular DJ announced on Twitter on January 8 that Zlatan blocked her on social media for a reason she could not fathom.
Obviously advancing a reason for Zlatan’s action, Afeare wrote: “Kudos to someone like Zlatan, who took a bold step by flushing a full fake friend like Cuppy who was just using his head all in the name of my papa na Otedola. Zlatan did a hit collabo with her, ordinary one kobo, he no see. She also took Zlatan to Abuja for her fundraising where she made billions of naira and didn’t even remember Zee for one kobo until tomorrow. No accommodation, no feeding. Zlatan had to even spend his own personal money at Transcorp Hilton to carter for everyone including me. Dis na 2021 abeg.”
However, DJ Cuppy accused Afeare, who claims to be Davido’s personal logistics manager, of libel and threatened legal action.
Accordingly, the DJ’s lawyers on Wednesday, February 10 penned a letter to Afeare demanding a retraction and an apology for the damage done to her reputation, among other demands.
“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,” the letter read in part.
