Not perturbed by a looming legal threat initiated by her ex-husband, Maje Ayida, media personality Toke Makinwa is preparing to take the promotion of her book entitled “On Becoming… ” to Kenya.
Toke’s African International Tour is now set to berth in Kenya after the successful signing and reading session staged last week at the La Palm Beach hotel in Ghana which had the attendance of Ghanaian celebrities such as Jackie Appiah, Ama Abebrese, Victoria Lebene, Ahuofe Patri, and Vanessa Gyan all showing support.
Maje has reportedly employed the services of a British law firm to sue Toke over the published book which revealed the alleged details of their failed marriage.
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 clear that the marriage was breaking down”.
The letter said that Ayida’s public image was ridiculed, ‘assaulted, injured and damaged’ by Makinwa who sought ‘relentless and limitless’ publicity with the launch of her book.
Importantly, the letter demanded that Toke Makinwa must retrieve all copies of the books sold, delete the e-distribution of the book, and upon agreement with Ayida, must schedule a place where all copies of the retrieved books must be destroyed. Then, she must “retract” the “published words” and write a full page apology to Maje Ayida on three national dailies. Failure of which “will result in the commencement of legal action.”
