Popular moviemaker, Temilade Oyegoke aka OT Odimayo has revealed how her latest flick, Ohun Ti Mofe, which was released early September, was pirated and released by another film producer days before it dropped on Aree Ago TV.
Odimayo, who couldn’t hold back tears while sharing her ordeal, lamented that after spending about N8 million on the movie that was shot in Ibadan and featured prominent actors, she got the shock of her life when she read comments from fans, knocking her for reproducing another person’s movie.
According to the filmmaker, she had started promoting the new movie on Aree Ago TV and other platforms when she realised that the scriptwriter had sold the same story to another producer, who released it with the title, Adimula.
Odimayo explained further that she couldn’t continue to promote the movie after her shocking discovery. “I’m totally troubled about this sad development. My movie was released early September, and I realised days later through comments and feedback that the same movie had been duplicated and reproduced. I spent over N8 million on this project and I am surprised that my fans have been bashing me on social media because they felt I copied another producer’s job,” she moaned.
Odimayo, however, disclosed that the scriptwriter has pleaded guilty and apologised for his infraction.
