Azeez Fashola, the music artist known as Naira Marley, has initiated legal proceedings against actress Iyabo Ojo, alleging defamation arising from false content on her Instagram account.
According to a letter from Naira Marley’s lawyer, Olalekan Ojo, Ojo accused the artist in September 2023 of being involved in both spiritual and physical dealings with the late singer Mohbad, causing mental damage.
The legal representation is seeking redress of N500 million and a public apology to be posted on Ojo’s official Instagram and a national daily. Failure to comply may result in a lawsuit.
The lawyer underscores the serious damage to Naira Marley’s reputation caused by the alleged defamatory statements.
