Pull down the post and tender an apology” – Ghanaian actress Nana Akua Addo threatens N50m lawsuit against Nigerian designer over her

Popular Ghanaian model and actress, Nana Akua Addo, has taken legal action against Nigerian designer Ezinne Olivia, regarding statements made about her AMVCA outfit.

In a cease and desist letter filed by her legal team, Nana demanded a retraction of Ezinne’s alleged defamatory posts about her outfit at the recently concluded AMVCA.

It will be recalled that after the event, Ezinne publicly revealed that she made Nana’s dress, which sparked mixed reactions because Nana didn’t give her credit for the dress, and instead tagged a Ghanaian designer.

However, some netizens doubted Ezinne’s statement and she proceeded to share videos of the process to confirm her claims.

This sparked a significant controversy online, with some Nigerians criticizing Nana for not properly acknowledging Ezinne for her work.

Some even took to Nana’s Instagram page to drag her to filth for seemingly taking advantage of the Nigerian designer.

In a new update, Nana has responded to the allegations through her legal representatives. She clarified that Ezinne was not the original designer of the dress and was only contracted to assemble the piece because her Ghanaian designer couldn’t make it to Nigeria in time for the event.

Nana also disclosed that Ezinne was paid in full for her job and was gifted additional $100 for a job well done. She also claimed that she tagged Ezinne in her post, but Ezinne repprtedly asked for the tag to be removed because she didn’t want to share the recognition with the other stylists who contributed to the outfit.

After shedding light on the issue, her legal team demanded that Ezinne remove all posts featuring Nana from her social media accounts and issue a public apology, to be published in two national newspapers within 48 hours. Failure to comply will result in a demand for N50,000,000 in damages.
