Mo Abudu has addressed the allegations of copyright infringement made by investigative journalist, Tobore Ovuorie against EbonyLife Films in relation to Oloture movie.
Just so you don’t lose track, Tobore Ovuorie had called out Mo Abdu for the production of Oloture movie and claimed that the movie was a “copy and paste” of her life story.
However, the media mogul had since, in a statement denied the claims, stating that the movie is a fictional work and not Tobore’s life story.
In a new video posted on her personal Instagram page, Mo Abudu has now addressed the allegations of copyright infringement.
According to the CEO of EbonyLife Films, Tobore wrote the article, “Inside Nigeria Ruthless Human Trafficking Mafia” which was published on August 2014, by Premium Times.
Premium Times disclosed that Tobore can not lay claim to the copyright over the investigative report which belongs to them. According to the Premium Times editor-in-chief, Mr Mojeed, only the media company and it’s partner of that project, Zam Chronicles, can lay claim to the copyright for the report based on Nigeria’s copyright law.
Mo also revealed that she had a good relationship with Tobore before the release of Oloture and that she gave her cash gifts but everything changed after the release on Netflix.
Mo Abudu insists that Oloture is not Tobore’s story but a body of fiction and that she is open to having a conversation with Tobore.
