Nigerian music icon 2face Idibia has sent a message through his lawyers, to his colleague in the music industry, Brymo, threatening to embark on a defamation suit if he does not rephrase and apologize for his tweets.

Brymo had last week, in a series of tweets, accused the music star of physically assaulting him and accusing him of sleeping with his wife.

Today, 7th day of October, 2021, Brymo took to his Instagram page to share the letters he received from the the music legend, Tuface Idibia’s lawyer.

Part of letter read: “The baseless and false accusation has caused unspeakable distress to our client and his family. You have also caused estimation to be lowered in the estimation of his friends, business associates and wilder members of the public and further caused him a significant loss of business.”

“Our client will give you a benefit of doubt, perhaps you were inspired to spew such nonsense after one of such self confessed episodes of spending days getting high and philandering. In which case, we demand that, in 48 (forty eight) hours of receipt of this letter, you withdraw your statements and publish on you entire social media accounts an unreserved apology to our client and his wife”

The letter also contains a clause of possible defamation suit if he should fail to take down the tweet and tender an apology to 2face Idibia on all social media.

“Should you fail or refuse to meet our demands, we shall perfect our client’s instruction and pursue redress by seeking no less than one billionaire naira in damages against you in court,” the letter concluded.
