Reno Omokri Drags Lateef Adedimeji Over Intellectual Property Theft
The award winning author of Fact vs Fiction, Mr. Reno Omokri, has called out Nigerian actor, Mr. Adedimeji Lateef for stealing one of his wisdom nuggets without giving him due credits.
According to Mr. Reno Omokri, he said that Mr Adedimeji Lateef copied his nuggets word for word and refused to give him due credits for his work, which is plagiarism and a very dishonest thing to do.
He further stated that he feeds himself from the sales of his books and for someone to just lift his work without giving him proper credits is very wrong.
The stolen wisdom nuggets which was posted on Mr omokri’s Twitter page on the 21st day of May, 2018 and on the 10th day of January 2020 respectively, was seen on Mr Adedimeji Lateef’s Instagram page today, the 30th day of September 2020.
Though, it is still very unclear if Mr Adedimeji Lateef knew the source of the wisdom nuggets and refused to give proper credits, or he saw it somewhere else and never knew who owns the original work for the nuggets because he has refused to say anything after he was called out by Mr. Reno Omokri. Below are screenshots of the wisdom nuggets which is also tagged Reno’s Nuggets.
So as it stands now, Mr Reno Omokri is demanding for a proper credit to be given to him for his hard work. Though some of Mr Omokri’s followers are asking him to forgive Mr Lateef and not to press for legal charges. Plagiarism is a very big offence in the entertainment industry and could attract some monetary fines.
