Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde In Legal Mess Over Debt Allegations


Renowned Nollywood actress, Omotola
Jalade-Ekeinde, has been reportedly
dragged to court by one individual
identified as Keshi Elvis, a legal
practitioner holding brief for Megafield
Solicitors, whose legal services the
celebrity was said to have engaged
through her company, Redhot Concepts
Limited, between 2010 and 2012.

According to Keshi, Omotola is owing
total of N1,150,000, for retainership
agreement and services rendered to
Omotola and her company within the
aforementioned period. The problem, he
claimed, started when Omotola failed to
honour the contractual agreement they
entered into in 2010.

He however said all attempts he made to
ensure that Omotola and her company
honour the agreement failed, a situation
which prompted his decision to seek
redress in court: “In February 2012, I
wrote Omotola where I terminated our
agreement, with a letter of demand. She
ignored me all this while,” he said.

Interestingly however, the actress is
said to have enlisted the services of
famous Lagos Lawyer and human rights
activist, Festus Keyamo, not to deny
owing the complainant money, but to –
among other things – counter that what
she owed is “N350,000, and not
N1,150,000”.

Now the question is: How much could
Omotola possibly pay for the services of
Keyamo? Or could it be pro bono?
