DJ Cuppy has written to Afeare Isreal, an aide to Davido, demanding an apology over a statement he made regarding her strained relationship with Zlatan Ibile.
Cuppy, whose real name is Florence Otedola, had earlier threatened to sue Isreal for claiming she didn’t pay Zlatan after their collaboration for ‘Gelato’.
In a letter dated February 10, Babajide Koku & Co., Cuppy’s lawyers, hedged that there was no contractual breach in her deal with Zlatan.
“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,” it read.
“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.”
In the document, Cuppy demanded that Afeare ceases to defame her on the issue.
She also requested that he writes a public letter of apology withdrawing his claims within seven days from February 10.
“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,” it read in part.
“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.”
Cuppy’s letter came after Zlatan had claimed that he “doesn’t know” the DJ.
