Musician, Davido’s aide, Israel Afeare has apologised to DJ Cuppy, over the statement he made about her work relationship with another artiste, Zlatan Ibile, who had cut off contacts with her.
Afeare’s apology is coming on the heels of Cuppy’s lawyers, Babajide Koku & Co., writing him and demanding he issues a public apology for his libellous statements against their client.
Part of the letter reads, “It is crucial to state that there are legal contracts that govern the relationship between our Client and Mr Zlatan Ibile; said contracts which very fairly and adequately cover the financial compensation of both artists, neither our Client nor Mr Zlatan Ibile have breached their contractual obligations in any way. The allegations in the statements made by you are completely untrue and constitute a grave libel upon our Client.”
The letter further states its demands which are to be met by Afeare before seven days and these include a public apology.
Acceding to the demands of the letter, Afeare had issued a public apology on his Instagram page, saying that the allegations against Cuppy were merely what he heard.
He said, “My name is Afeare Isreal. I want to apologise to you, Cuppy Otedola on my last post on the issue involving you and Zlatan. I’m very sorry for the embarrassment; it has caused you, your person and family.
“I want to say, I’m sorry, it will never happen again.”
