Friday, March 24, 2017, marked a memorable day in contemporary Nollywood history. As an audience gathered for the premiere of Omoni Oboli’s movie Okafor’s Law at the Film House Cinema in Lekki. Things came to a screeching halt as a court order obtained by Isioma Idigbe meant that the premiere could not go on. That moment was important for the message it sent: the violation of the intellectual property rights of creators could not go on any longer.
This experience and more form the core of the conversation between Entertainment Lawyer and host of the Africa Music Law Podcast Show, Uduak Oduok and fellow Entertainment Lawyer, Isioma Idigbe.
