You’ll prove defamatory claims in court’ – 2Baba’s management hits Brymo

By Our Correspondent



Now Muzik, a record label and management of 2Baba, the award-winning musician, has tackled Brymo over his remarks about its client.

 
The ‘Ara’ singer had earlier claimed that 2Baba “falsely” accused him of sleeping with his wife.


The songwriter also alleged that he was attacked by men loyal to the ‘African Queen’ crooner over reasons that remain unknown to him.


Days after Brymo’s claim, 2Baba had threatened a N1 billion lawsuit against him for alleged defamation and asked him to recant his statement.

 
But Brymo had dared the ‘Implication’ singer to proceed with the lawsuit while insisting on his earlier claim.


He was also said to have taken a dig at 2Baba that “your reign is over, stay at home”.


Reacting in a statement via its Instagram page on Saturday, the record label blasted Brymo for making “false and defamatory statements” against 2Baba.

 
“Brymo’s statement about ending 2Baba’s reign is an opinion, maybe a wish. That’s not something for us to bother about,” it read.


“If indeed a reign will end, it would be up to 2Baba and the fans. If its Brymo that will ascend the throne, that would also be up to the fans and of course, at least a dozen other incredibly talented and eminently qualified artistes most of whom clearly tick more of the relevant boxes than Brymo but then again, it’s every man’s right to dream and aspire.


“What is unacceptable is making false and defamatory statements. Nothing can be farther from the truth than Brymo’s statements. Those who know Innocent Idibia will struggle to situate him in the spurious scenarios in the incredulous narrative Brymo has contrived.”


The record label said Brymo should be ready to substantiate its allegations against 2Baba in court, adding that the law will take its course.

 
“Brymo will have an opportunity to substantiate his claims with proof in court. If he fails to do that, the law will take its course, fully. 2Baba will not dissipate energy engaging Brymo in media exchanges,” it added.


“Only a court of competent jurisdiction can serve justice to the innocent and enforce punitive actions against the guilty. Anything else is a circus and we are no clowns.”
