Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote will be suing his American mistress for $30,000 for leaking a video of their private time, which included his buttock.
The lawsuit filed by Mr Dangote, in a Miami, Florida court, claim damages for his dampened reputation.
The billionaire entrepreneur, who is seeking a $30,000 compensation, filed the civil lawsuit under a John Doe, a common pseudonym used in masking one’s identity in legal matters and also an initial presumably his name, DA (Dangote Aliko).
Mr Dangote is filing the charges against an American lady known as, Autumn Spikes, whom he has allegedly been in a secret relationship with for a couple of years until the whole affair went south after a video of the billionaire surfaced on Ms Spikes Instagram page, allarounda1.
Ms Spike had, on January 1st 2021, posted a video of herself and the billionaire, supposedly in a an exquisite yacht. Although the location of the recording was not made known, Dangote could be seen partly claded with an orange blanket while his buttocks were unknowingly exposed while fiddling with his phone.
Ms Spike also posted a picture of the Dangote Group Chairman alighting from a private plane, possibly as proof that they are indeed an item.
Although the media were later deleted by Ms Spike. However, it was too late as many Nigerians had downloaded them and uploaded on various social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Reacting to the supposed lawsuit on her Instagram page, Ms Spike, through her Instagram account, allarounda1, stated that Dangote offered her fifteen thousand USD ($15,000) and two thousand five hundred USD ($2,500) a month to sign a non-disclosure agreement which she declined.
Ms Spike also claimed she later agreed to and signed a non-disclosure agreement which she was influenced and pressured to sign but was not captured as part of the original NDA offered by Dangote.
Reacting to the lawsuit, Ms Spike referred to it as a ‘manly egotistical move’, alleging that she was asked to provide proof of their affair because Dangote denied knowing her.
