Popular Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel slams Vanguard Newspaper/media with N100million naira for libellous publication against his person. This is coming days after he accused the Lagos based media house of allegedly making a false publication against his person concerning the embattled senior Pastor, Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of a popular Abuja based church, Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA).
The said publication as shared by Kizz Daniel and his solicitor carried the headline that reads:
“Celebrities have no right to judge Pastor Bidoun Fatoyinbo-Kizz Daniel”
Kizz Daniel as we reported some days ago, had threatened that Vanguard Newspaper would hear from him and his lawyers, and this latest development is him and his team making good their initial threats of a possible lawsuit against the media house.
According to the information obtained, Kizz Daniel and FlyBoy INC legal team are now asking for N100 million in reputation damages caused by the defaming publication. The letter dated July 5th 2019 reads:
Kizz Daniel had taken to his Instagram account to vent and deny the claims by the popular Nigerian Newspaper, where he said that they made a publication alleging that he spoke in support of the embattled COZA pastor, Pastor Biodun who was accused by celebrity photographer Mrs Busola Dakolo to have allegedly raped her when she was still a teenager.
Kizz Daniel in distancing himself from the said publication told fans that he had at no time granted an interview to anybody anywhere, as he is still on tour overseas. He confirmed to have seen the COZA trend but had not gotten the time to even start granting interviews on the issue or airing his views on the alleged rape by Pastor Biodun on social media.
He called out some names, saying they will hear from him and his team, and this time he is ready for them.
See his post:
“God will punish you both now and in eternity @iamkyno — you and all the people behind you. I’m coming for you with all I’ve got Oga and I swear, you go feel am.
My attention has been drawn to a publication by the Vanguard newspaper stating that I took sides with the embattled Pastor of COZA , Abidoudn Fatoyinbo.
I will like to categorically state that I never granted any interview with vanguard or any newspaper.
I am currently busy on tour in the US and haven’t had the time to discuss the issue in my closet let alone call industry mates names.
Please disregard this news article making rounds. It is false and fabricated, I have not spoken to any journalist regarding the said matter or any other matter including music in recent times. .
Any platform(s) that publishes this news or any unverified news about Kizz Daniel and FlyBoy INC. will face legal action
And as for you @iamkyno pls run away as far as you can, I beg you @vanguardnewsbastards!!!! @iamtimiblaq ti e ma baje patapata ni awsr*
