Nigerians React As AY Comedian Sues Popular News Outlet N1bn Over Defamation

Ayo Makun, better known as AY, a popular Nigerian comedian, has filed a lawsuit against the popular news outlet ThisDay for publishing a defamatory story about him and his brand.

According to sources, This Day Newspapers reported an untrue article about the comedian with the following headings;

'PR Job Gone Sour' "Why Friends of Belema OIL and founder, Tein Jack-Rich, arent happy with AY the comedian." The claim, on the other hand, was untrue and fake, according to the comedian's legal team.

AY took to his Instagram page to share photos of the legal actions taken by his brand. 

“There is a part of every human that finds gossips and rumours about celebrities enjoyable within the social media space. Bloggers on the other hand have continued to capitalise on these social cancers to drive traffic to their platforms without any form of fact findings or verification.

In as much as some of us can TEMPORARILY tolerate those faceless bloggers who enjoys the ride and the traffic such lies and rumours bring to their pages, it will be totally unacceptable for an established media outfit such as THISDAY to join the bandwagon of career killers and home breakers.

Enough is enough with all the nonsense and the social media entertainment cruise you catch by telling lies and using innocent people to trend. A THISDAY should know better that accusations can ruin lives, so before you accuse and condemn, you better know what you are talking about. If you didn’t witness it yourself, then don’t assume everything you hear to be true and report them.Only a fool speaks without having all the facts. @thisdaynewspaper DO THE NEEDFUL OR MEET ME IN COURT.”

This has triggered some comments from his followers, who are pleading with him to do "give away" before the money arrives.
