Speaking in a statement sent to Legit.ng, the Fela In Versace hitmaker's parents Tony and Lynn Forbes denied any involvement in the book.

The Forbes family said Melinda Ferguson approached them with the book idea, but they turned the offer down and refused to contribute to the book.

They also made it clear that they can't comment on the book's contents because they don't know what Melinda wrote about. The statement read:

"We are not in any way associated with Melinda Ferguson’s book and we do not endorse it. In the same breath, we distance ourselves from the contents of the book.
"When Melinda reached out to us, we respectfully and rightfully declined to contribute to her book.
At this stage, we cannot give any further comment on the book as we are unaware of its contents. We do however find the intended publication of the book and the timing distasteful and opportunistic."
