Ace Nigerian singer, Adewale Mayowa otherwise known as Mayorkun has sued TikTok influencer, Nickie Dabarbie over alleged defamatory and libelous statements.

The entertainer is demanding N1 billion damages from Dabarbie for falsely accusing him of being a ritualist and trying to use her for ritual purposes.
