Maje Ayida sues Toke Makinwa for defamation, demands N100million
Fitness expert, Maje Ayida, who is also the former husband of media personality Toke Makinwa, has decided to take legal action against the media queen and best selling author over the publication of her book titled ‘On Becoming’ which is supposedly a revelation of what she went through under the guise of a loving relationship with him.
Ayida has claimed that the book contains defamatory words which have put a dent on his public image and hence affected his career and so has thereby directed his lawyers, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP, to begin legal proceedings at the Lagos Judicial Division of the High Court.
The publishers of the book which is a memoir, Kachifo Limited, have also been sued alongside the On-Air Personality.
Maje Ayida is demanding N100 million in damages in the suit which was filed on February 7 2017 but requested that the money be awarded to four charities which he will nominate.
Toke Makinwa has already been served with the papers.
Recall that Maje had earlier told Toke to retract the book and tender an unreserved apology to him for the damage she has caused him which she didn’t respond to.
Toke and Maje got married in a private ceremony in January 2014, after being together in a relationship for close to 12 years.
