Xandy Kamel has expressed regret for alleging that actress Salma Mumin sells her body for a living.
The apology comes weeks after the actress sued her and Angel TV for defamatory statements made about her.
A video posted on Instagram shows Kamel asking for forgiveness from Mumin and adding that she sourced the story she reported from other platforms.
"We also look forward to working with you. We come in peace. Whatever we said that impugn on your character, please forgive us," said a remorseful Kamel.
Months ago, Kamel suggested on her show 'Yenonm Tea' on Angel FM that Mumin was a call girl and that acting was a cover for her practices.
