Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo in a countersuit has slammed popular singer, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley with a suit demanding N1bn.

It should be recalled that the counsel of the Marlian Record label boss recently sent out a pre-action notice demanding that the actress pay N500 million in damages for allegedly linking the singer to the death of one of his former signee, Mohbad.

The death of the young singer has since sparked controversies, investigation and outrage since his demise on 12 September 2023.

However, responding to the lawsuit, Ojo claimed Marley’s lawyer brought the claims to the media and public “but failed to serve them to me.”

She alleged that Marley’s failure to deliver the letter to her was a “calculated attempt to disparage my well-earned reputation.”

Ojo is also demanding from the Am I A Yahooboy singer a public apology.  Taking to her verified Instagram account, she posted the letter issued by her lawyers.

It read, “Foremost, our client would ordinarily have dismissed your letter of 12th day of December 2023 for being outrightly inconsequential and of no relevance, premised on your failure to transmit the correspondence either by hand or post till this very day.

“Our client views your conduct (failure to first serve a copy of the letter of 12 December 2023 before same was released) as a calculated attempt to disparage her well-earned reputation, tarnish her jealously parded vocal capital and advocacy, and ultimately cause her psychological trauma not limited to incitement of the members of the public to (cyber) bully and lose the goodwill of her clients thereby resulted in loss of patronage of her craft and income from sales of goods and services.

The statement further read, “Our client shall be claiming the sum of One Billion Naira (N1, 000, 000, 000.00) deliberately misleading the public a letter was served on her with the intent of causing grievous harm which has indeed led to the grievous loss of income and lower her standards amongst right-thinking individuals, Nigerian and International associates, corporate institutions and reputable companies our client works for as ambassadors and/or Counter-Claim against your client for One Billion Naira (N1, 000, 000, 000.00) for first bringing to the media and/or public, a letter addressed to her but deliberately not delivered/served.”
