It can be recalled that the TikToker made a bold accusation against Eniola Badmus, claiming she was a pimp who gives out girls to politicians for a fee.

After several confrontation, she confessed to have defamed the movie star because a friend, Fortune Ibe, promised to pay her N200,000 to do so.

However, for being remorseful, Justice Oweibo gave her the option to pay the fine of N150,000 in lieu of jail time, saying that her action contravened Sections 24(1)(b)(2)(a)(c) and 27 of the Cybercrimes Act, 2015.
