Popular Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun better known as AY has instituted legal actions against popular News outlet, ThisDay for publishing a defamatory story against him and his brand.

Taking to his Instagram to share photos of the legal actions taken by his brand. AY wrote;
“There is a part of every human that finds gossips and rumours about celebrities enjoyable within the social media space. Bloggers on the other hand have continued to capitalise on these social cancers to drive traffic to their platforms without any form of fact findings or verification.

In as much as some of us can TEMPORARILY tolerate those faceless bloggers who enjoys the ride and the traffic such lies and rumours bring to their pages, it will be totally unacceptable for an established media outfit such as THISDAY to join the bandwagon of career killers and home breakers.
Enough is enough with all the nonsense and the social media entertainment cruise you catch by telling lies and using innocent people to trend. A THISDAY should know better that accusations can ruin lives, so before you accuse and condemn, you better know what you are talking about. If you didn’t witness it yourself, then don’t assume everything you hear to be true and report them.Only a fool speaks without having all the facts. @thisdaynewspaper DO THE NEEDFUL OR MEET ME IN COURT.”
