Spyro Threatens Legal Action Over Collaboration Saga


Singer Spyro has issued a stern warning of legal consequences against bloggers who misreported his stance on collaborating with Portable.

In a statement released by TAP Music Entertainment Limited, Spyro clarified that he never claimed Portable was not a good artiste.

The controversy arose from an interview with media personality Do2dtoun, where Spyro expressed differences in musical styles, stating that he couldn’t envision writing a song for Portable due to their distinct genres.

Despite this, some media outlets falsely portrayed Spyro as discrediting Portable’s artistry.

Spyro’s management refuted these claims, emphasizing that the singer praised Portable’s ingenuity during the interview.

The statement concluded with a seven-day ultimatum for bloggers, including “Wahalanetwork,” demanding the removal of defamatory posts or facing legal action for willful misrepresentation of facts.

“As a team, we wish to use this medium to unequivocally state that at no time did Spyro outrightly state that he would not feature Portable or ever state that Portable is not a good artiste. Spyro, had in actual fact, given multiple accolades to the ingenuity of Portable in the full-on thirty minutes’ interview session.

“It is no gainsaying to state that Spyro’s predominant music genres are Afropop and R&B while Portable performs street-hop. Hence, it was not out of place, during the said interview session, for Spyro to have mentioned that he does not envisage writing a song for Portable. As simple and as evident as this is, it has come to our attention that some Nigerian fans and netizens, bloggers (such as the “Wahalanetwork”), have taken it upon themselves to misrepresent the facts and to publish defamatory statements in order to bring to disrepute the name, image and brand of Spyro.

“We would like to bring to the attention of media houses to seize to publish defamatory contents against Spyro as this is a tortious act and a cause of legal actions against anyone who willfully and knowingly publishes malicious, defamatory statements and willfully misrepresent facts. Based on the foregoing, we hereby demand that the posts made by Wahalanetwork, other bloggers and Netizens on this issue be taken down and expunged within seven (7) days. Where these posts are not taken down, we will not hesitate to institute legal action,” the statement read in parts.
