Tobore Ovuorie, the journalist who accused Mo Abudu and EbonyLife Group of copyright infringement has responded after Ms Abudu released a video to address her allegations.
Tobore had claimed the movie Òlòturé was an adaptation of the investigative report she did in 2014 and was published in Premium Times. She claimed EbonyLife took her life’s work and demanded adequate compensation.
But in her response, Mo Abudu said EbonyLife sought the permission of Premium Times as they own the rights to the report, not Tobore. She added that to fulfill all moral obligations, she also sought out Tobore, interviewed her, gave her credit, and promised her money for her foundation (read here).
Tobore has now reacted to Mo Abudu’s response. The journalist addressed each of the points Mo Abudu raised and went on to list her demands.
