Pirates in the popular Alaba International Market, Ojo in Lagos have released more pirated copies of Kunle Afolayan’s October 1 movies. This is coming on the heels of verbal attack poured on the pirates by film distributor Gabriel Okoye, who lambasted the traders for being largely responsible for piracy in Nigeria.
Okoye, popularly called Gabosky, is the distributor of top films such as Phone Swap, Onye Ozi and Tango with Me, with October 1, being the next in his repertoire.
Following reports that the film has been pirated and set for release, Gabosky, at a media conference last Thursday decried the impunity of the ‘Alaba boys’, urging government to step in, by strengthening the existing laws on piracy.
A devastated Afolayan, on Monday, alerted his fans on the fake copies of his film in circulation. He begged them to show pity on his investment by refusing to buy from the pirates.
