By Chi Amaka (Umunna Tv)

Gospel artist, Mercy Chinwo, has filed a suit against hip-hop artist Obidiz for defamation of character and unauthorized use of name and image.

In the notice, which surfaced online on Thursday, the counsel slammed the artist for derogatorily using their client’s name and image in secular music audio and video.

The cease and desist letter of notice, which was shared by a Twitter user, was dated March 23, 2023.

Speaking on the lawsuit, Ajibola Bello, law corridor deputy managing partner said: “Since we can’t reach him on phone or via email, hence we are sounding this notice of warning and demand that the published song by the artist bearing our clients name and photo with immediate effect be taken down from all musical platforms and to take down promotional video containing images and clips from all social media platforms.

“And failure to heed to these demands, the full machinery of the law will be set in motion against him seeking 2 billion in damages.”
