Nathaniel Bassey Takes Legal Action Against Defamation Allegations



Renowned gospel singer, Nathaniel Bassey, has taken a bold step to address false accusations circulating on social media. Bassey recently petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, urging an investigation and prosecution of individuals who falsely implicated him in paternity claims concerning Mercy Chinwo’s child.


Bassey’s legal representatives submitted the petition on April 1, 2024, citing criminal defamation and cyberstalking against four social media users: Okoronkwo Ejike, Kingsley Ibeh, Terrence Ekot, and Dj Spoiltkid.

In the petition, Bassey’s lawyers underscored the serious repercussions of such defamatory statements, emphasizing the detrimental impact on both personal and professional spheres. They highlighted the potential damage to Bassey’s career as a respected gospel music minister and the broader implications for his international reputation.
