Ghanaian television presenter, Mona Gucci has been ordered by an Accra High Court to pay GHS 500, 000 to Yvonne Nelson.
The court’s ruling comes after Mona Gucci failed to make an appearance before the court after she was summoned.
It all started after she tagged Yvonne Nelson as a Slay Queen.
“Yvonne doesn’t show off, but she is a slay because you know the slay queen it entails a lot, we have both showing off and some contacts and people who we know that the things that you do and the lifestyle you exhibit, someone is paying for you behind the scenes,” she allegedly stated on Neat FM in May last year.
Cautions from Yvonne’s legal team for her to apologize did not move her.
Following this, the Court presided over by Justice John Eugene Nyante Nyandu ordered Mona Gucci to pay GHS 500, 000 to Yvonne and also apologize for her defamatory remark.
“On the 13 July 2020 the Plaintiff/Applicant herein caused a writ of summons and statement claim to be issued against the defendant praying for the reliefs set out in the statement of claim and the endorsement on the writ of summons. My Lord, it became necessary to serve the processes by substituted service due to the evasiveness of the defendant. That on the 8th June 2021 an order for substituted service was granted. That my Lord will notice from the docket that the defendant was served by an Affidavit of Posting dated the 8th of July, 2021. That a search dated 13th of October, 2021 shows that the defendant has made no response to the suit. That accordingly with the rules, we, therefore, pray this court for an order for Judgment in Default of Appearance. Respectfully submitted,” Yvonne Nelson’s counsel was quoted to have said through a document Newshuntermag.com has chanced upon.
