This had created a lot of controversy online and the gospel musician had taken legal actions against some of these individuals.

On April 1, 2024, Nathaniel Bassey filed the petition with the IGP via the attorneys Peter Abraham, Uche Matthew, Gbenga Agunloye, and Anthony Abia.

Four social media users claimed last week that Bassey was the father of a popular gospel singer’s son; the claim went viral on X.

As a result, the attorneys implored the police to look into the petition against the four social media users—Okoronkwo Ejike, Kingsley Ibeh, Terrence Ekot, and Dj Spoiltkid—as soon as possible.

The petition partly read …

Our client is a gospel music minister whose songs and ministrations have impacted the lives of so many from different walks of life across the globe.”
