The whole drama has not ended for Toke Makinwa oh, as she will be returning home from London to meet a N100 million defamation lawsuit against her by her estranged husband, Maje Ayida.
The Cable reports that while the OAP was hosting a meet & greet for her best-selling memoir, “On Becoming” in London, after being asked to seize all promotions of the book by Ayida’s lawyer, she was served the lawsuit.
It is easy to deduce that Ayida’s lawyer’s, Carter-Ruck, a top UK firm that specializes in defamation and Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP, representing him in Nigeria, made the move as Makinwa has continued to promote and sell her book.
As earlier reported, Ayida revealed his intentions to take legal actions against his ex-wife over the content of her memoir which his lawyers described as containing “defamatory words.”
According to them, On Becoming is an “exaggerated fabrication.” or maybe he’s just broke lol.
Last weekend, Ayida told Saturday Beats, that Makinwa’s memoir hurt his brand as people tend to believe what they read about you.
Now, we wait for Makinwa’s play as she has gone on to promote her book, giving us the impression that she is ready to take on her estranged husband if need be.
