Following damining allegations against her person, Mo Abudu, C.E.O of Ebony Life has given a response to claims that she stole the movie ‘Oloture.
Recall that investigative journalist, Tobore Ovuorie had claimed that Abudu stole the movie ‘Oloture’ which is a copy and paste story of her life.
Ovuorie is best known for her 2014 investigative work, ‘Inside Nigeria’s Ruthless Human Trafficking Mafia’, has revealed the movie Oloture which was released on October 2, 2020.
According to the journalist, who recently demanded $5,000,000 (about N225million) from entertainment firm, EbonyLife Films for stealing her story, Oloture was a case of the reporter becoming the story.
She also went about how her health diminished due to the trauma that came along working on the story. She further accused ebonylife of adapting her work without express permission.
Mo Abudu has now clarified the allegations in a 10 minutes video released on her Instagram page moments ago.
She captioned the video thus:
