The legal team of superstar singer Davido has issued a cease and desist letter to Oyindamola Emmanuel popularly known as Dammy Krane, demanding a retraction of a tweet that labelled Davido a “murderer” and “cheat”.

Dammy Krane wrote: “There’s nothing worse than murder #davido You fit get money but you no fit get peace #Karma.

“Ps: Dont ever get married because your girl caught you cheating you wan gbe-iya-wo ( Carry suffer look ) Congratulations Owe B Owe — Big Daddy Krane”

The letter states that the tweet was defamatory and offensive and Davido has never been charged or convicted of any offence, including murder.

The lawyers demand that Dammy Krane delete the tweet and cease defaming Davido within 24 hours or face legal action, including damages and injunctive relief.

The letter reads: “We are informed by our client that you have repeatedly published statements on your social media platforms that he finds not only defamatory and offensive but which also constitute an act of cyberbullying.

“Our client has further informed us that whilst in Abuja, he became aware of the latest in your series of defamatory posts, which is your publication of 21 June 2024, which you caused to be published on your X (formerly “Twitter”) page using the handle #dammy_krane, wherein you stated thus: “There’s nothing worse than murder #davido You fit get money but you no fit get peace #Karma

“Ps: Don’t ever get married because your girl caught you cheating you wan gbe-iya-wo ( Carry suffer look ) Congratulations Owe B Owe — Big Daddy Krane”.

“The simple imputation to be drawn from this post is that, amongst other reprehensible things, our client is a murderer.

“Our client vehemently asserts that contrary to the insinuations in your post, he has never been charged with or convicted of any offence, including murder”.

The letter highlights the global recognition and reputation of Davido as a music star and philanthropist, and emphasises that the false and malicious nature of the publications is evident.

The lawyers assert that Dammy Krane’s actions constitute a civil breach and an infraction of relevant criminal laws, and demand compliance with their demands within 24 hours to avoid legal consequences.

It added, “The malicious nature of your post is also evident from your subsequent post taunting our client and stating that “He can’t sue because iIspeak the truth Oponu”, when in fact you know your allegations to be false and outlandish.

“The above posts which you published to your over 342, 600 followers on the X platform have been circulated globally and syndicated by hundreds of blogs across the world. Given the status of our client, this post has unsurprisingly gained significant traction globally, and our client is at the time of this letter trending at No.1 on X Trends for Nigeria, attracting thousands of negative comments and reactions in the process.

“Your conduct in publishing these statements, despite knowing them to be false, is not only malicious but also orchestrated to defame and injure the reputation of our client, a globally recognized music star. Such actions constitute a civil breach as well as an infraction of the relevant criminal laws.

“Therefore, we hereby demand that you: 1. Within 24 hours from the date of this letter, remove and retract the offensive publication from all your social media platforms.

“2. Immediately refrain from any further publication of defamatory statements against our client on any platform whatsoever.

“Take Notice that your failure to comply with these demands within the stipulated timeframe will compel our client to pursue all available legal remedies, including but not limited to initiating legal proceedings against you for damages and injunctive relief, and escalating this matter to the relevant law enforcement agencies”.
