Leila Djansi demands retraction and Apology from Danku


Ghanaian movie producer and director, Leila Djansi is demanding an apology and a retraction from actress Kafui Danku over “defamatory” statements she made against her some days ago.

This followed after Danku, posted on Facebook that Miss Djansi is “badmouthing her to some colleagues in the industry because she refused to assist her.”

Even though the actress issued an apology of which she later deleted, Lawyers of Miss Djansi in a letter are demanding a formal retraction and an apology from her.

They also added that the comments were made not only to tarnish the producer’s image but also negatively influence the society’s image of Leila.

Danku was given a July 23, 2020 deadline to apologise.

Read the letter below:

We act as solicitors for and on behalf of Leila Djansi and write pursuant to her instructions.

It is our Client’s instruction that on the 21st of July, 2020, you caused to be published on your Facebook wall some defamatory words targeted at the character of our Client.

Our Client further instructs that the said words to with “I might as well make the whole community aware that you are DANGEROUS… if anybody has warned you to be careful of Leila Djansi, believe them!” were falsely and maliciously calculated to lower our Client in the estimation of right thinking members of society generally and to tarnish her hard-earned reputation.

It is our Client’s further instruction that although you issued an apology on your Facebook wall on the 22nd of July, 2020 which was accepted by our Client, same was deleted shortly after it was issued.

Furthermore, notwithstanding the said apology, the damage to our Client’s reputation had already been occasioned as the said defamatory words had been widely circulated by various media outlets and blogs.

Consequently, our Client demands that you cause the retraction of the said words from all third party media outlets and blogs which have published same and also cause the said apology to have published and circulated particularly on your Facebook wall with the same prominence as was given the defamatory words, by the close of 23rd of July, 2020.

Our client further demands that the publication of the said apology on your Facebook wall should remain for no less than seven (7) days from the date of publication.

Should you fail to do so, our Client will be compelled to pursue appropriate remedies without further notice to you.

Yours sincerely,


Obeng-Sakyi, Sobgbodjor & Co.
