Joy Bewaji/Makosi Update: Joy Bewaji Retracts Statement
Most of you will remember that Joy Bewaji accused tv presenter, Makosi of stealing her work, by publishing her materials in a book without her consent. She says and i quote, 'I will drag you by your hair to court'. This morning Joy sent me a mail and said she wants to retract her statement. If you missed their first story read it here and the second one here too. Good to know they have settled their differences. Oya read her retraction below.
To address the issues concerning the presentation of the book: “Self Love: The Ultimate Choice” by Makosi, it is imperative to state that there was an absolute breakdown in communication at some point that resulted to a misunderstanding, which escalated to shock, anger and a total fall-out.
We have since been summoned to a round-table dialogue; and all misunderstanding and disagreements have been laid to rest. As it appears, no one has a horn to their head after all.
I do understand the need to “grow above” certain situations, but my first response was to react angrily, and for that I will take a bullet.
At this point, after proper intervention and mediation, I would like to retract my previous letter as it contains scathing remarks that came straight from a point of utter disbelief.
I trust this would conclude the matter.
