According to reports, Radio Presenter, Toke Makinwa’s estranged husband, Maje Ayida has hired British lawyers to sue Toke Makinwa over her tell all book ‘On Becoming’ which he says is an “exaggerated fabrication”.
The fitness instructor has also asked her to stop the sales of the book and all forms of promotional activities.
The lawyers engaged by Maje according to reports manages legal issues for famous people/groups including Simon Cowell, Elton John and Chelsea FC, while his Nigerian lawyer Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) is also in the team.
A ‘Letter of Demand’ has reportedly been sent to Toke with notations including a revelation that in 2014, she signed an agreement after Ayida “requested legal separation” from her ‘within 6 months’ of their marriage in January 2014 — when it became obvious that the marriage was breaking down”.
The law firm further noted that the publication has brought “public ridicule” on Maje, noting that his reputation has been “assaulted, injured and damaged.”
“His professional integrity as one of the leading health and wellness practitioners in Nigeria, and his professional credibility built over the years through dedicated hard work have been besmirched”, the letter revealed.
According to the law firm, Makinwa’s representation of Ayida in the book was “not a true reflection of who he is, his character and his background.”
Toke Makinwa’s tell-all book, On Becoming, had detailed her account of her relationship/marriage to Ayida.
In the book, the television personality accused Ayida of giving her sexually transmitted diseases,
being a serial cheat and committing adultery.
