Defamation: Actor Jigan Babaoja threatens N100m lawsuit against singer, Mohbad
Jigan Babaoja, a popular Yoruba movie star, has threatened to sue former Naira Marley signee Mohbad for making fun of his disability in a yet-to-be-released song.
The singer shared a snippet of his new song ‘Ask About Me,’ which is set to be released on April 14, 2023, and the lyrics appear to take a dig at the Nollywood actor.
“Temurege bi Jigan. Ese Jigan o to le”, he sang.
The lyrics didn’t sit well with Babaoja who has now threatened to sue the singer for defamatory statements.
Sharing a video of the snippet playing in his car via his Instagram page, Jigan Babaoja wrote, “I am taking this up against @iammohbad and I am going to charge him 100 million! This will sound a big lesson to others!”.
As of the time of filing this report, Mohbad had yet to respond to the threat.
This is not the first time the actor has threatened to sue a singer for making fun of his condition in song lyrics.
Jigan Babaoja threatened to sue Asake last year for making fun of his inability to walk in one of his songs.
However, no legal action was taken against the YBNL artist.
