Nollywood actress, Ireti Doyle, has openly disassociated herself from her daughter, Abimbola Ngozi Onyeulo’s business.
Abimbola, who is better known as Kachi and runs the famous Kachi Beauty Products has been called out and accused of defrauding her customers.
Following a thorough investigation, it was revealed that the entrepreneur carted away with more than N40 million belonging to her customers.
This claims came after she started a hair business scheme that promised to create more wealth for those who joined its wholesale distribution.
The scheme attracted many young women and men both in Nigeria and outside the country due to the trust they had in her and considering her mother’s status as a prominent actress.
Abimbola had introduced a distributors package that cost N300,000 to subscribe to the silver category, N500,000 for gold subscribers, N1 million for platinum, and N5 million for diamond subscribers.
Over 60 customers complained about not getting the product in the first quarter of 2021.
The 54-year-old film star decided to free herself from the controversy.
She took to her Instagram page on Monday to deny being affiliation to Kachi’s business.
“I reiterate and write to inform all parties concerned and the general public that I am in no way connected to Kachi Beauty Products,” she wrote in a disclaimer that has since met mixed reactions,” the actress wrote.
“I do not and have never owned a share, been a director, been on the payroll, or received any financial benefits from said business.
“I have zero affiliation with or interest of any nature in Kachi Beauty Products and its board/proprietors.
“Mrs. Abimbola Ngozi Onyeulo (nee Ozofor) aka Kachi, the 34-year-old founder of said business, is one of my biological offspring and that is the extent of the relationship.
“In light of the above facts, I implore all persons who have been adversely affected in their business dealings with Kachi to liaise directly with her or the appropriate authorities equipped to deal with such matters.”
Doyle’s disclaimer was welcomed with mixed reactions because Ireti had on several occasions promoted Abimbola’s business on numerous occasions.
At a time, the actress took her daughter’s side after a customer allegedly made payments without receiving the promised products.
Ireti defended Abimbola, saying her daughter’s brand was “nurtured for over a decade with love, tears, and sacrifice”.

Another tweet responding to Doyle’s claims in the disclaimer read: “Ireti Doyle said you people should call the police for her daughter and leave her out of it because all she did was give birth to Kachi, full stop.”
