Tyger Booty

Nigerian businessman Bright Udiagbe aka Big Slim has been arraigned by Ghana police over the death of American exotic model Julie Williams, aka Tyger Booty.

The police said Tyger was in contact with Mr Udiagbe while she was in Ghana. Big Slim owns a hotel, restaurants, and nightclubs in both Nigeria and Ghana.

He is the owner of Silver Fox strip club in Lagos, which Tyger Booty visited before travelling to Ghana.

The accused has been arraigned in a prosecution led by Chief Inspector Lawrence Anane, at the Kaneshie District Court, where other suspects are facing trial for the model’s death.

The other suspects include Susan Azor, an employee of Udiagbe; Gideon Kwafio, a cook and a receptionist; George Ntsor, a gardener and Odoi Laryea, a security guard-all employees of Rayporsh Hotel, located in the country’s capital and where the model was found dead.

They were granted bail in the sum of GHC 100,000 each with two sureties, one to be justified by the court presided over by Mr Stephen Tabiri.

The prosecution, led by Anane, had argued that the District Court lacked jurisdiction to grant the accused persons bail praying the court to remand the accused persons to assist the police conduct investigations into the case.

However, counsel for the accused persons opposed the prosecution’s prayer.

Defence counsel told the court that his clients paid for the autopsy report and also paid the hotel bills for the few days the deceased stayed in the hotel.

It was, therefore, the considered view of the court that indeed the facts did not support the charges, hence the decision to grant the accused person bail.

Tyger was found dead in a room at the Rayporsh Hotel in Abelenkpe, Accra, Ghana after spending weeks in the country.

“Preliminary police investigation has established that the deceased US national arrived in Ghana on December 3, 2021 en route from Nigeria. Having tested positive for COVID-19 on arrival, she was taken into an isolation center at Ave Maria Hotel, South Legon-Accra,” a statement from the police read.’s check on Booty’s Instagram page shows she was at Silver Fox, a popular strip club in Victoria Island, Lagos in Nigeria before heading to Ghana.
