August 27, 2016 – Nollywood Actress Who Produced Movie With Real Names & True Story Of Friend Offered N3Million, Lawyer Speaks

One of the trending entertainment new stories of the month is that of budding Nollywood actress cum producer Chioma Okoye who reportedly produced a movie based on the true life story of her friend.

She got into trouble when she created the movie titled ‘Lagos Men’ with the true names of her friend, husband and their daughter.

Though she confirmed that the lady gave her a go-ahead to release the movie in 2014, but no permission was given to her to use the real names of the parties involved in the child abuse story.

To cut the long story short, she has been offered N3million by the friend in question to take down the movie but she has refused.

This is what her lawyer said yesterday:

“It must be clearly established that the film did not contravene any known law, statute, rules of motion pictures, injurious to reputation, slanderous or libelous. Rather it’s a story created to bring to life people’s rough tides, calculated at superb imagination engagement and to promote good societal values.

We have taken steps to protect our client and we shall further seek redress in the court of law on her behalf. They should not conceive that the stupid chance they had on our client that fateful morning, their intimidation, coercion, and threat might deprive her of her rights and all this success, newly appreciated and newly illumined by her fans and the general public”.

  1. becareful of who u share ur weaknesses will,bcus some people cant wait for the opportunity to use them against u.

  2. See ? I have always had my reservations about “insiders”. So Mr. Lawyer does not consider important enough the breach of moral code of honor in using the REAL names of the persons upon whose life story the movie is based? If the daughter is a minor is she not entitled to some protection in certain situation?
    Make sure you are on solid grounds before you talk tough on such matters because if you don’t see the need to shield your”friend’ and her family from public ridicule they might not do you that favour should you trip up.

  3. so what are gain in being adamant and destroying her friends marriage but on the other hand it good for the the friend who gave out such vital information and approved it for filming… BUT HAVE BEGIN TO SUSPECT THAT THIS ALL STORY ARE PROPAGANDA & PUBLIC STUNT IN OTHER TO SELL HER MOVIE.


  4. Even though she wanted to make use of one’s story,must she use the real name if she’s not totally intended to dent the person’s personality,they offer you money not to release the movie, yet you turn down her agreement. Remember that your own destruction day is at hand,if care is not taking you may fall woefully

  5. If you destroy someone today,another person will surely destroy you too. In as much we are on the same earth.

  6. She was just unprofessional! If this will be enough for the expenses of the production, take it and walk away. Life has no duplicate.

  7. I wonder what sort of publicity she is giving the film, I as a person will never buy such a movie produced based on dishonesty and lack of integrity.
    Why are they paying her for anythg, maybe for assaulting her. But she called for it when she decided to tarnish someones image.
    Its only in dis country I see people that do not know their rights.
    When she is suing u for assault then u can also counter sue for damage of character, Lobatan.
