Nov 10, 2016 – Kate Henshaw At War With Vodka Over Violation Of Image Rights

For not obtaining permission before using her photo for an advert, Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has knocked Vodka, an alcoholic brand, describing their act as lawless.

She wrote: “I detest this! This is what happens in a lawless country. Do you have my permission to use my Image? She queried.

This is the second time this year that the actress would be making such outburst.

Recall that comedian Akpororo has used the actress to promote his show, an act she openly rebuked, only for the latter to apologise.

Vokda had put up a promo with Kate Henshaw’s image which reads: ‘Wear the crown, Kate Henshaw’.

Many wonder if the actress is willing to go to court over this, albeit there is no known law specifically governing image rights in Nigeria. Other top entertainers who have found themselves in the same situation include popular writer, Toni Kan; spoken word poet, Efe Paul Azino and singers, Simi and Praiz who were named as its brand ambassadors.

    They have no right to use her image without hae permission. Her image is part of her personality and the way she expresses herself. There are countless images all over the place but because the advertisers perceive that the buying public they target for the sales of their product will be receptive to her image as their brand, they project that image. They should pay Kate for using her image or failing which she should sue them for unauthorized use of her creativity. It is well worth testing the waters to see what the courts think of the matter and will contribute to the development of the law on the subject.
    Most likely such move will result in settlement out of court between the parties but well worth a try.
