Popular Instagram dancer, Usiwo Jane, popularly known as Janemena, has sued Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, for N500 million.
In a suit filed through her lawyers, Janemena said Dikeh’s claims that her ex-boyfriend, Joseph Egbri aka Prince Kpokpogri, had her (Janemena) sex tapes in his possession, were damaging and malicious.
“These malicious publications and in the context in which it was made, meant that, Janemena understood it to mean the following amongst other things: Janemena who is a married woman had and is still having an amorous or sexual relationship with Prince Kpokpogri (referred to in the publications as Joseph Egbri) who is not Janemena’s husband,” the application read in part.
Janemena demanded an immediate retraction of the said publications by Dikeh on her social media handles and a publication of the retraction in four national dailies in Nigeria, adding that the actress also tenders an unreserved apology to her and pay the sum of N500 million as exemplary damages for the malicious publications.
Reacting to the suit, Dikeh said Janemena cannot be begging her (Tonto) and file petition against her at the same time.
In a post shared on her Instagram stories on Tuesday, Dikeh wrote: “If I say your sex tape exist, I say it again and again child. You can’t be begging me behind the scene to save your marriage and begging to see me for an appointment to explain yourself and then come with a petition.
“Am not as dumb as your boyfriend, so I wouldn’t be releasing your sex tape nor your call a week ago. See you in court.”
