I don’t know if Seye is a litigator i.e. trial attorney. However, I do know that he is a dealmaker in the entertainment industry in Nigeria and also represents many, including EME/Banky W. In any event, he apparently is also representing Audu Maikori.
I don’t recall reading any “distasteful statements”Audu allegedly made about Jesse Jagz and Brymo, but apparently there was allegedly something to that effect?
The press release below was sent to me in early July while I was away. Thought to share because I am always interested and intrigued to see the way my colleagues in Africa handle entertainment law issues and disputes. Seye essentially sends a demand letter to all press and blogs. I doubt these media houses or blogs took down the alleged defamatory statements. Did they?
Does anyone know the “distasteful” statements that was allegedly made by Audu? I’ve got a lot to sift through so I could use your help with little details like this. Y’all got a sista using her lunch time to do AML sturvs! Oginni? Y’all do some work around here! 🙂
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUDU, BY THE WAY!
Meet Oluwaseye Lawal
Seye, all this free publicity, you go pay o. 🙂
RE: BRYMO/JESSE JAGZ/AUDU MAIKORI PRESS RELEASE
Our attention has been drawn to a slew of publications which have been carried by several blogs, websites and online newspapers, which alleged that our client Audu Maikori, CEO Chocolate City Group, issued a press release in which he made certain distasteful statements about Jesse Jagz and Brymo.
Our Client has informed us that neither the CEO of Chocolate City nor any of his staff have at anytime made any statements in respect of any of the artists as is being touted by many reputable and not so reputable publications.
It is indeed sad that the tenets of true journalism were disregarded as several media outlets in typical manner just reposted the false thread without bothering to verify the authenticity or otherwise of the publications.
Consequently we write to request that you take down all such publications, as they are not only untrue but a deliberate manipulation to taint the reputation and or character of our Clients. Please note that most contractual disputes involving our artist are currently subject of legal proceedings as provided in the individual Artist’s contract and Chocolate City in deference to the legal process has declined to make any statements on the pending matter until it is settled by the judicial system.
NOTICE IS HEREBY given to all such blogs, newspapers or other publications to remove and retract any and all publications of the false story or our Client will be left with no option but to seek legal redress against any such offending blog or website.
We believe you will do the right thing.
