A Lagos High Court has awarded N5million d@mages against singer Ikuforijimi Olaitan Abdulrahman alias Oxlade over a leaked s+x tap£ with a woman on Snapchat.
In a judgement dated January 24, 2023, Justice Oresanya described the action of the singer, in secretly recording an explicit s+x with a woman and thereafter le@king it online as “despicable, horrendous, distasteful and classless.”
It would be recalled that the s+x tape of the singer had surfaced online in February 2022, without the knowledge and consent of the woman we involved in the video. The leaked video sparked public outrage, and forced Oxlade to tender an apology to his fans and to the woman in the video.
The woman, John Blessing had filed a suit before the court on March 15, 2022 seeking N20million d@mages and a declaration that the respondent (Oxlade’s) act of recording his explicit s£x¥al acts without her knowledge and consent amounted to flagrant contravention of enabling laws and a gross viol@tion 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.
After hearing counsel for the claimant, E. T. Idemudia and O. S. Mabekoje with U. R. Michael for the respondent, the judge had set for judgment when parties agreed to opt for amicable resolution via a consent judgement.

“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 judge said.
