Nollywood actress and film producer Mary Remmy Njoku shared her thoughts on the court’s decision to award Oxlade N5M singer compensation for leaking his recordings.
Recall that High Court Judge Ikea Olalekan Oresanya awarded compensation to Ikuforijimi Olaitan Abdulrahman (Oxlade N5M) for leaking a video from a bedroom with a woman via Snapchat.
Justice called the singer’s actions “despicable, horrible, obnoxious and classless” after he secretly recorded sexual moments with a woman and then posted them online.
A video of Oxlade having sex with a woman was posted online in February 2022 without the woman’s knowledge or consent. This caused public outrage and forced the singer to apologize to fans and woman.
The woman, identified as John Blessing, filed a lawsuit on 15 March 2022 seeking N20 million in damages and the defendant’s (Oxlade’s) allegation that her sexually explicit behavior took place without her consent to the recordings. . This constitutes a serious violation of the Fundamental Rights and Empowerment Act with respect to dignity, privacy and freedom from discrimination, guaranteed by Sections 34 and 37 of the 1999 Constitution (Amendment). and African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (Ratification and Implementation), Law, CAP A9, LFN, Article 5 of 2004.
Commenting on the IG blog, Mary Njoku said that the amount given to woman is quite small.
