Mercy Chinwo's lawsuit put Obidiz in the limelight

In a chat with Legit.ng's Olumide Alake, Chidubem @iamchidox on Twitter said gospel singer Mercy Chinwo's lawsuit against Obidiz was a blessing in disguise.

She said:

"People didn't know that Obidiz released a song or that he sven existed till Mercy Chinwo sued him. The lawsuit by Mercy Chinwo actually put Obidiz in the limelight than the song itself. The winner in this all still remains Obidiz, it's good to pick one's battles. Imagine if Ludacris decides to sue every barber that has his picture on their poster."
