Hours after news broke that her estranged husband, Maje Ayida had contracted two law firms to stop the sales of her memoir – On Becoming -, media personality, Toke Makinwa, in an Instagram post said: “The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”.
Toke is currently in Ghana to launch the sales of the book in the country, as well as have a Meet and Greet for her fans. She’ll also be doing a press tour for the book.
Maje’s lawyers sent Toke a “letter of demand” dated December 30th 2016, to stop the sales of the book where Toke had written about their relationship, accusing Maje of cheating while they were dating and even after they got married. She also accused him of infecting her with Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).
The legal documents described the book as nothing but “exaggerated fabrication,” adding that it contains “defamatory words”.
The law firms the fitness expert hired are Carter-Ruck, a leading defamation law firm in the UK to top figures like Simon Cowell, Elton John and Chelsea FC, while Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) of Pinheiro LP is heading the legal front in Nigeria.
Things fell apart between Toke and Maje in 2015 after the former discovered that the latter impregnated a lady while they were married.
Toke continues to promote the book on Social Media:
