Nigerian Soul singer and songwriter, Timi Dakolo in a press briefing as reiterated he never discussed his wife’s virginity with anyone or any media house.
The singer made the statement during a Press Conference in Lagos on Sunday.
According to Timi, he wondered where the news came from as he never granted any such interview.
He, however, mentioned that it was fabricated by the enemies, who were also responsible for the news that he got wedded at the COZA church and that he also received cash running into millions from the pastor of the church, Biodun Fatoyinbo.
Timi Dakolo who spoke on behalf of his wife at the Press Conference was also joined by Kate Henshaw and his lawyer.

Timi Dakolo and his wife Busola Dakolo had a press conference where the singer narrated the events that have followed since the release of the interview where Busola accused Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA of raping her twice when she was 16. Timi released a public statement thereafter. See the highlights below: Busola filed a petition on June 27th, 2018, one day prior to the release of the interview, accusing Fatoyinbo of raping her as a minor. The Petition was filed at the Office of the Assistant General of Police, Alagbon, Ikoyi. Him and his wife have been to the office on several occasions after that, on invitation by the police, to answer questions as part of investigations. Timi said: “As far as we know, Mr Fatoyinbo has not been questioned on the strength of my wife’s petition – even after several invitations by the Police that we have honoured.” After Kemi Olunloyo shared their address online, Timi said, “I want Nigerians, the Armed Forces, Amnesty International and the good men and women of the Nigeria Police Force to know that SINCE THEN people have been following myself and wife in tinted unmarked cars, TO OUR HOME! AT different times, in the last week we have been trailed.” On yesterday’s incident. Timi said he noticed a tinted bus parked in front of his house, adding that at the same time, his wife was being followed by a car whose occupants he said signalled the bus and armed officers attached to SARS stopped her car and asked her to step down. He said she refused and called her lawyer, and then the officers stepped back and said they came to hand over a letter of invitation from the police which they did. The invitation letter was based on a petition by Fatoyinbo. It said they police is investigating “Criminal Conspiracy, Falsehood, Mischief and Threat to Life”. However, Falsehood and Mischief are not offences in Nigerian law. Falana & Falana chambers are Timi & Busola’s legal representatives and they have told the family that their petition and Fatoyinbo’s will be moved to Lagos.
