The daughter of one of Nigeria’s wealthiest businessmen, Femi Otedola, has instructed her lawyers to sue a blogger known as Israel for alleged libel and defamation.
In tweets on Monday night, Florence Ifeoluwa Otedola aka DJ Cuppy Saud the blogger “inaccurately” reported that she breached contractual obligations to an artiste.
Her tweets read: “For the record… There have been no breaches of my contractual agreement regarding the song #Gelato as confirmed by lawyers… However, as @IsrealDMW publicly inaccurately declared I owe an artist money, I am suing him for libel and defamation!
See you in court Isreal.
Sadly my Cupcakes, I’m not allowed to answer questions or comment further as it is now a legal case… #Gelato”
A check on the blogger’s Twitter page showed he had deleted all his tweets.
In his bio, he described himself as the “personal interstate road and logistics manager” of top Nigerian artiste and billionaire’s son, Davido.
Her followers, however, urged her to drop the legal option and seek an amicable resolution of the issues.
The main issue persons to allegations that the DJ failed to provide accommodation and transport for an artiste, Zlatan Ibioe, for a show in Abuja.
The tiff between DJ Cuppy and Zlatan had dragged for some weeks on social media, culminating in Israel challenging DJ Cuppy to confirm if she did provide logistics for Zlatan.
