Barely hours after DJ Cuppy announced she would be filing a lawsuit against DMW and Davido’s PA, Israel, the latter has come out with a defiant response to the development. The ‘Jollof on the Jet” crooner is filing for defamation.
Israel recently claimed that DJ Cuppy, daughter of billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola did not pay fellow musician, Zlatan Ibile for their collaboration in hit song, Gelato.
The revelation which was backed up by a video showing a conversation between Davido and Zlatan went viral. In the video, Zlatan is clearly heard saying he was at a fundraiser organised by Cuppy but had not been paid.
However, Naijawide, the Home of Entertainment has gathered that DJ Cuppy has filed a lawsuit against Israel for his claims to which he has given an immediate response.
Reacting to the report on his Instagram page, Israel had the following to say:
“Have you ever in entire life, giving Zlatan, any kobo? Did he pay for his hotel bill, food at Transcorp Hilton or not?
Things look to be getting pretty heated, but Cuppy’s response showed she was not ready to let it get out of hand.
She subsequently made a post on her page telling her fans she could no longer comment as the case was now a legal issue.
Naijawide will continue to stay on top of the development and report any update and new findings immediately.
