Nigerian superstar singer, Oxlade has been fined five million naira by a Lagos High Court over le@ked s3x tape of a woman on Snapchat.
Recall that in 2022, a s3x tape was released on snapchat which involved a woman identified as John Blessing and Oxlade. In the video, the singer could be seen having fun with a lady who seems to be enjoying herself.
Although Oxlade rendered an apology to the woman involved, she filed a suit against the singer seeking N20million damages and a disclosed that Oxlade leaked the s3x tape without her consent.
The young woman stated that the act was a gross violation of her fundamental rights to dignity, privacy and freedom from discrimination.
In a judgment of the case by Justice Olalekan Oresanya, he described Oxlade’s actions as “despicable, horrendous, distasteful and classless.”
“The action and attitude of the Respondent (Oxlade), who is said to be a celebrity, is despicable, horrendous, distasteful and classless. The Respondent is admonished strongly to act with utmost circumspection in his relationship with fellow humans, especially the opposite s3x. “what goes around comes around”. I need not say more,” the judge said.
According to the judge, “The attitude of the Respondent towards the proceeding leaves much to be desired. The Respondent failed to appear in this Court and the only reason given for the Respondent’s absence by his erstwhile counsel was the Celebrity status of the Respondent which to my mind cannot be equated to that of many notable celebrity Artistes in this country who have comported themselves well respectably both within and outside of this country.”
After the case was settled, Oxlade was asked to pay damages to the tune of N5million to the claimant in two instalments of N2million and N3million respectively.
