In other news, Femi Adebayo, a prominent actor in Nollywood, expressed his concern over the alarming prevalence of film piracy in Nigeria.

He emphasized the urgent need for this issue to be promptly resolved. Taking to his Instagram page, @femiadebayosalami, on Tuesday, Adebayo shared his personal experience and triumph in combating piracy for one of his movies.

He highlighted that the potential profits from the film industry have been significantly hindered by the unlawful actions of movie pirates.

Adebayo firmly stated that immediate action must be taken to address this detrimental situation.

Adebayo said:
“The Nigerian film industry has experienced exponential growth over the years, but we haven’t been able to maximise the true dividends of this business because of dare devil pirates who benefit where they didn’t sow.
“This is a major reason why investors find it hard to commit their funds to filmmakers. However, through persistence and the use of the legal framework covering intellectual property, we can bring their activities to a gradual halt.
“Several times, I have been a victim of movie pirates and I never spared them. I recently concluded a legal battle with a notable media company that owns a big radio station and also engages in Youtube content distribution.
“During the cinema run of “Survival of Jelili” in 2019, my movie was gathering good numbers at that time. They decided to use my movie poster and title to promote a movie on their platform, thereby deceiving fans and diverting revenue accrued to me.
“It took 3 years, but my trust in the legal and justice system remained unwavering. With the dedication of our legal team, Bola Adebowale & Co Legal Practitioners, who are seasoned professionals with wealth of experience in handling such cases.
