In the audio interview I listened to, he said that Omoni’s 2014 Being Mrs Elliot is also an idea she lifted directly from him without giving him due credit.
According to him, he sent her the first 50 scenes but she later changed her mind saying they found a better script only for him to watch his own movie’s premiere in Paris in 2014.

In Okafor’s Law, he said despite the contract he had them(Omoni and her husband #nnamdiOboli) sign, they refused to pay him the agreed N750,000 or even give him credit.

He won’t be suing her because he doesn’t want to taint her record. He only wants Nigerians to hear his own side of the story.
