Actress Omoni Oboli Accused Of Allegedly 'Stealing' Script Of Okafor's Law And 'Being Mrs Elliott' From Jude Idada..

Canada-based writer Jude Idada has accused Nollywood producer, director and actor, Omoni Oboli of copying his script for her new film, Okafor’s Law which is set to make its world debut at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Idada told TNS that Omoni’s 2014 Being Mrs Elliot is also an idea she lifted directly from him without giving him due credit.

I stand with Jude Idada a zillion percent on this. He is one of the few Nigerian "unsung heroes" when it comes to thorough scriptwriting and directing. His storytelling will literally hold you spellbound; I couldn't resist collaborating with him on a couple of projects. You have NO RIGHT to plagiarise his scripts or anyone else's for that matter and then go ahead to make yourself famous with them without giving him any acknowledgement. Barawo! That is EVIL and SELFISH. You underestimate a very intelligent man who knows how to invoke the full dose of "Okafor's Law" (pun intended) on you and ensure that "Mrs Elliott" (pun intended again) is duely divorced. Cases like these make me miss Efere Ozako even more. I still do not know an entertainment lawyer as good as he was. God is not asleep. #IStandWithJudeIdada#GiveHonourToWhomIsDue




*I hope Omoni will respond to this allegation through her PR..I am one of her die hard fans and feel sad that she is being called out.....This is bad for her business!

I have always known Omonu as an empty brained human.

Was surprise to see her movie as a best seller.

Stop stealing abi plagiarism.

MON AMI said...

Nawa but there ain't no smoke without fire...I feel for her though but she's educated enough to know that plagiarism if found guilty is no joke it will cost her tons of money if the guy decides to sue.Omoni if you been really thief o just use wisdom and book a quiet flight to canada and jejely sort this out with that dude.

Tetrina said...

My own okafor's law...! I first quoted it on this blog last year and people were say, 'what's this one ssying'. Okafor's law is real and it has made me keep away from my former gfs since I married. I didn't even know that someone is using the concept to make a movie

Anonymous said...

LMAO. I'm actually waiting for the people that wrote those scrpts for him will step forward. Because I am 100% sure that omoni couldn't have written those scripts.

Jennifer Iheanacho said...

If the movie wasn't a hit, will he come out and talk nonsense. If you are good as you claim you are, your work should speak for you. #anotherblackface

Omoni is not smart enough to write such movies..been waiting for this..she should learn to give credite to whom it's due

PORTABLE VIV the beautiful n sexy queen of sdk blog said...

Dude is stupid...!!!!
What was he waiting to produce the said movies?
They will soon steal his destiny

Mrs. Romas said...

I love Omoni Eboli and i expect her or her P.R to reply to this big allegation immediately. If the scripts were written by her or someone else, they should bring out prove.

This is not a good one.

Mao Akuh said...

Egor, hope you've confirmed before posting. Lol @Barawo

This kind of thing is avoidable if she had done the right thing. People don't normally forget things like this, that's why I usually watched the end of any movie to see the names of the script writer/story teller incl the cast(s).
Omoni should quietly settle whatever is the problem asap before tweeting or posting on her walls.

Hahahahahaha @ book a quiet flight to Canada.

And no,I don't agree there is no smoke without fire. Not all the time.
Sometimes it's just a misty or cloudy weather and no smoke. Lol

The General's Wife said...

Thank goodnes someone else noticed.
Personal vendetta?

Mrs Power aka MP said...

Viv he is a script writer not a producer. Its his work and what he does is write while others act, direct, produce etc. He is d story on paper.
Hope I broke it down enof for u.
Ur understanding is amazing.

Mrs Power aka MP said...

If this is really true, Omoni needs to pay this guy. Short it now before it blows out of proportion. Funny it might be that the guy just wanted recognition for his work period.

Anonymous said...

Gbam!!!

Oby O said...

Thank you my dear! The problem we have in this country is that our mentality has been marred by years of living in a country where nothing works... The man might just be seeking recognition for his work and not even money... It can be super annoying for someone not to recognise your effort especially since the movie seems to be a success.. I see nothing wrong in what he did..

Chikito The Professional Runs Girl said...

Anon14:36- the fact that she's bad in acting doesn't mean she's not a good script writer. I can't Afro save my life but in my head I've conjured a lot of movies that sometimes I wish I was in entertainment.
Egor too should make sure this is verified before she starts insulting someone anyhow. Very unprofessional for someone in the industry. You can give news without being biased and insultive.

Minx said...

And Jude is a beautiful writer. And yes he's my friend.Coming back when I verify this story. That's how I just missed attending TIFF.

Mrs Power ' her understanding is amazing' ke or you mean to say the bottom less depth of her stupidity. Ive never seen anyone who carries stupidity with such pride like a badge of honour. Smh

sisi eko said...

Abeg she had no right to plagiarize somebody else's intellectual property, if this is true. And she didn't acknowledge the person even as she garnered enough publicity for the said movies?? C'mon now.

She was always updating her SM about her huge sales at the cinemas. So How do you think the brain behind it will feel?? Na wa o

Iphie dearie said...

I think she's naturally this way.... Dunno why.
If there is no personal issue here, I totally feel sorry for her enemy.

sisi eko said...

True, there are so many actors who aren't good in acting but are better producers/ script writers.

A good example is that Kunle Afolayan guy. Dude can't act but he produces good movies.

sisi eko said...

Ah didn't even know it was the "almighty Egor" until I read this. Had to scroll back to see the poster. Very typical of her though. Lol

sisi eko said...

Personal vendetta. Eheheh

sisi eko said...

That's how somebody claimed Afolayan's CEO and one other movie he did were plagiarized too o. But they claim he extracted from some nollywood movies.

Unknown said...

Yes, this is so TRUE .

Williams arinze said...

OMONI OBOLI Has started again with her PUBLICITY STUNT, same way she used people's head to sell WIVES on strike, all of you na fools, so una never know omoni's style to market her movie, okafors law looks dry ,so she's looking for a way to cheat people again
