April 10, 2015 – Movie Piracy In Nigeria: Kunle Afolayan’s Movie Marketer Gabosky Blasts Fellow Ndigbo, Says 99.9% Of Alaba Movie Pirates Are From The East

“I Have The List Of All Movie Pirates In Nigeria, They’re All Igbos” – Kunle Afolayan’s Marketer Blasts Fellow Ndigbo

Kunle Afolayan’s movie distributor and marketer, Gabosky has opened up on the ongoing war against movie piracy in Nigeria.

Gabosky, an Igbo man took a swipe at his people selling pirated movies in Alaba International market and throughout Nigeria.

The popular movie marketer who is also an Igbo man said his people are solely responsible for movie piracy in Nigeria.

Hear what he said in a recent interview;

‘When I went in to fight this group in Alaba, we had a fight that lasted for two hours. I am telling you that when I went into Ubakason Plaza and Obosi Plaza; the den of these pirates, 99 per cent of the people that are trading there are Igbos so I don’t know why you just want to take criminality and start joining it with politics.

“I am bitter. I am frustrated. Kunle Afolayan is also bitter and frustrated. Kunle is like somebody whose wife has been slept with by somebody else and you find out that the man who slept with his wife has a tribe and he is complaining about what the tribe did to him and you are now asking him why he is mentioning a tribe. Continue…

Nobody is addressing the fact that this man borrowed over N150 million to shoot a film and has not gotten a Naira back and he is showcasing his frustration; telling everybody; ‘Look at what I am facing’ yet nobody is asking him about his pains or the challenges he is faced with. Let me tell you what he is facing – Kunle Afolayan shot a movie and gave the movie to an Igbo man called Gabosky who owns G Media to distribute. The man produced the movie and brought it into the market. I came back to him and told him what I was facing; that the movie was being pirated and that I needed to find out what was going on.

I went round the country because I have outlets in all the states and found out that the movies were being pirated and I began compiling names and I can tell you that the names I compiled did not have the name of a single Yoruba man in it. They are all Igbos and I have the list.”

  1. …..Where is that Silly good for nothing Uche “Maggi”Jumbo? who thinks she knows everything by coming out to open her dirty mouth here on this forum.
    Same thing goes to all those ***** people from the Eastern part of Nigeria, who came on this forum to accuse Kunle Afolayan of tribalism.

    When will the Igbos in Lagos and all over Nigeria STOP being in self denial each time someone accuses them of any crime, they twist it and play the tribal card. Any smart and right thinking person knows that 99%of the Alaba market traders are Igbos and they are the ones dealing in piracy.
    Don’t worry -you shall all change your trade soon when we have a new government in place.
    I’m sure ,this is one of the reason most Igbos voted for PDP and Jonathan, in the presidential election bcos most of you (Igbos )wanted the corrupt government of Jonathan, to continue. You were all opposed to change in the Nigeria polity because you all want a government that will continue to shield your inherent criminalities, but “baba-God” has said no.
    Now, its shame to bad people-your fellow Igbo brother has come out to say you, Igbo people are the ones responsible for the piracy in Nigeria-as if U guys don’t already know the truth before now.
    Do Igbos need to be told that it is fish, they use to make Sardines ?At the end of the day ; U’ll start calling urselfs smart people.So U should be smart enough to know the people responsible for piracy amongst you .except of course that u are typically turning a blind eye to this vices.
    Please to the Igbos; do Nigeria some good by start calling a spade a spade..*** people! mtcweeee!!!!!

    • mumu kunle and sell out gabosky..crime knows no tribe or ethnicity.credit card from yahoo yahoo comes from your tribe but that does not include the good ones..address issues without senseless judgement.

      • @Iron bar,this ur comment sounds like the normal cliché from people in ur tribe(Igbo).
        Each time a honest Igbo-man comes out to say the truth like Gabosky has done here.U will start threatening them and calling them names like “sell out or OUTCAST”…”Nna na wetin”?- na only ona dey dis naija? Oginni?biko uno oo!!
        This means then that if a man does not conform to ur vices then he is a sell -out or outcast, na wa for una o!
        May God bless the likes of Father Mbaka,Gov.Amaechi and the likes of Gabosky who are NOT afraid to speak the truth amongst you, by calling a spade a spade.

  2. ***** u are very **** Sometimes peeople should think b4 saying anything! Why all those insult 2 innocent people? Is all igbos dat are doing d biznes? Dat u aree laying abusive words. On dem? I voted 4 buhari not bcs of people like u but bcs he is a good man and has work hard 4 dat position. If u want 2 fight corruption come and start around u first till u get 2 d govt. I stayed in **** land 2 at least some yrs and watch most of their parents suffer, livee in penury and 100yrs house while their kids are rich here in abuja and oda places! Some of dem can’t even givee dem 500 hundred naira talk more off……….. Dey youth rob both banks and road and shade a lot of blood as if is movie dat we are watching! Anyway let m rest m case here but next tym think b4 u speak talk more of writing publicly. God will save us through dis new govt! Am sure of dat! God bless Nigeria! Amen…………

  3. Why is it that everywhere the ibos go to they cause problems. The North have a problem with them (with the constant confrontations), Same thing with the South West. Its not illegal to move around and integrate in any state of your choice but when you settle somewhere and begin to claim rights because your settlers then thats pushing it. What the ibos would not accept in their states they want to demand from others. How many Yorubas or Hausa are in House of Assembly In Akwa ibom or Abia or Cross River yet they go to Lagos trying to meddle with the governance there. Every where they go they try to claim they are indegenes of the place. Same thing in China. Yes China of all places!! Started fighting the govt there saying because they do business there they have rights. An ibo person can do no wrong in the eyes of another. Just look at Jonathan and howthe East are pouring praise on him despite this presidents attrocities. (From bribing obas and all in the south west prior to election to $1b food allowance in the last budget). This man kept borrowing to the dismay of others. He even borrowed $1b for the 50th independence despite the nation saying at the time that it was a time of reflection and not jamboree. He ran a corrupt govt that has set the country a few years, yet he doesn’t give a damn and will not declare his assets as a govt official.
    Not to generalise and say all ibos are tribalist because before election during and after there have been a few people from the East that has spoken against the trend, i.e Father Mbaka, Gov Amaechi etc but these gentlemen have been threatened and treated like outcast, same with others less well known.
    As its been said call a spade a spade and stop covering bad behaviours just because its your tribeman. Nigeria has never been more divided along ethnic lines until Jonathan became president. You’ll hear stuff from the ndigbos like “its our oil and the corrupt official can do what he likes with the proceed”. Yet we desire a better nation.

  4. Piracy should b thoroughly dealt wit. Personally, I am so grieved about dis evil thing. 2 reap frm anoda person’s sweat is superlative injustice. If dat list is anythn 2 go by, den let dis marketer place it @d disposal of d EFCC.

    @Me, 4u 2 have said dat criminality is inherent in d Igbo peopl, I jst wonda. I hope u fully undastnd dat st8ment. Let me stop here 4 now.

    • @Metu Nyetu,what exatcly is the point U r trying to make here?If you dont know the meaning of the word Inherent,then go back to school or better still U simply go and abduct a dictionary to understant the meaning of the word properly ok.
      Its igbo people like U and Uche “Maggi”Jumbo,who are still very much in denail -of the fact that ur people are the ones responsible for certain vices in Nigeria.

      People like U propagate this evil gospel of vices deneil through “collective self denial and blame it on others sydrome”that people like U ur likes have adpodted.
      Please Do Nigeria,and all honest people a favour by calling a spade a spade.Stop propagating this false and divisive tribalist gospel by using the tribal card each time people accuse ur tribe of a crime.

      There is going to be dawn in Nigeria, soon,U wait,D wind of CHANGE is blowing ur way soon!

      • @Me, is ur problem ***** or hypocrisy? I bet it’s both. Were u even a bit wise, u would hav known dat my st8ment didnt call forth dat kind of irrational response u gave.

        2d game u so desire 2 play, are ur peopl not staind wit d same dirt u accuse d **** of? D leader of those Nigerians recently booted out frm Kenya becaus of their criminality, is he not ur brother? I gues ur bias-twisted mindset constraind u frm commentn about dat news. A ***** can kil an ostrich & there would b silence. But if an ***** dares a small fowl, d whole place would burn dwn wit vitriolic comments. It was a ***** who thot me d meaning of workshop–where u work is where u chop, in oda words, workchop. He actually meant dat one must b stealn litle-litle things frm his office. Is dat not criminality? Yet u’r here condeming a whole tribe.

        **** aptly represent d pharisees in d time of Jesus, & if Jesus eva hated anybody while He was on earth, it was a pharisee.
        Be wise!

        • @Metu Nyetu,You are only fighting a lost battle here .Go back and read thru’ur comments again.You have ended up making no sense!D fact still remains that 99% of D Alaba traders are ****,ur people.
          Metu-it is better for U to begin to call a spade a spade for D sake of teaching good morals to ur children and Nigeria ,as a whole.
          Metu,call ur people(****)to order biko!so everyone can begin to live in peace.I rest my case.

  5. kunle afolayan …shut up that your stupid mouth, that your stupid bears u wearing i will cut it for u. are u the only movie producer in this world..tribalism man…u are a big goat and a fool.

  6. GOD wil punish u all dat has said bada against IgBo for no reason“ Imagine soup pepper cowards talkin

    • @Ur Way,Who is the coward here? Is it the people that have worked so hard like (kunle Afolayan) or the thieves and the tribe they are from- that are pirating is hard work?
      Before U come here to open ur “pokiti”-mouth without making any sense other than causing people. Take a trip to Alaba market and come back here on this forum to tell me where the traders that U see there are from.
      Mr kettle calling the Pot black.
      Man in the Mirror like u is talking too…”Oloshi”

  7. @Naijagist, I appreciate d way u censor certain wordz dat peopl use here. May I, howeva, ask dat wen u replace words wit asteriks, try 2 count d numba of letters in d concernd word & replace it wit d exact numba of asteriks. U censord my comment: dat’s not my pain. But using 4 asteriks where 6 would hav been is not d best u’d hav don.
    Thanks!

  8. Gaboski, is A Veteran Nollywood Movies Marketer and d Marketer of d Movie ND AN Ibo Elder. We have other tribes in the Piracy business, even in Idumota, but Alaba remains d illicit joint.Why must any man dinned on another mans sweat. God will not support that. And for a Producer to borrow money only to find his sweat been stolen, right on his face, he is bound to react.WE SHOULD NOT PIN afolayan problems on only d Ibos, but if the MARKETER, WHO IS ALSO AN IBO MAN, AN ELDER, ANd A VETERAN, SAYS OTHERWISE, WE SHOULD FIND A WAY OUT TO SOLVE IT. HON. TONY ONEWEEK, first music was pirated, We organized ours and we did well in getting rid of it. Lets not encourage piracy,its a cancer, lets fight it together, or else, u will be d next victim.

  9. in dis 21st century,ppl still hate n speak Ill of other tribes??dat’s disappointing…y would a man wake up 1 morning only 2 apportion blames on a particular tribe because he is frustrated???d earlier we Nigerian youths start talking 2 our heads,d better 4 this nation n if u keep preaching ‘1 Nigeria’ but still hating,u r either confused or getting d wrong ideas cos d last tym I checked,God has made us 1…not minding d tribes,cultures,languages…if any1 isn’t comfortable with dat…puh-leeze,get help!
