Singer oxlade charged 5M for damages over a leaked sex tape




The court has awarded five million against Nigerian singer oxlade over a leaked sex tape.


The lady who sued Singer Ikuforijimi Olaitan Abdulrahman, aka oxlade to court, has been awarded five million naira for damages over leaked sex tape by Justice Olalekan Oresanya of an Ikeja high court. The sex tape had gone viral online in February 2022 with the consent of the lady involved.

The lady involved, John Blessing had filed a suit before the court on March 15, 2022 seeking N20million for damages and a declaration that the respondent (Oxlade’s) act of recording his explicit sexual acts without her knowledge and consent amounted to flagrant contravention of enabling laws and a gross violation of her fundamental rights to dignity, privacy and freedom from discrimination guaranteed under Sections 34 and 37 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended); and Articles 5 of the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights (Ratification and Enforcement), Act, CAP A9, LFN, 2004.


Justice Oresanya described the action of the singer secretly recording himself having sex sex with a woman and thereafter leaking it online as “despicable, horrendous, distasteful and classless.”


Justice Oresanya chastised the singer against such act in his relationship with the opposite sex in the future.

Asides this, the judge chided oxlade for disrespecting the judicial process and accused his lawyer for aiding him.

The judge said,

“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 sex. “what goes around comes around”. I need not say more.

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 the respondent gave for his absence by his former counsel of 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 and respectably both within and outside the country”.
