CRIME / ENTERTAINMENT NEWS: The EVIL that Jumia Did to Top Nollywood Actor, Richard Mofe Damijo

Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, (RMD) has sued Online Retailer, JUMIA for unauthorized use of his image in marketing their products.

According to RMD’s publicist, this unauthorized use of the image has been ongoing and has had the effect of portraying to unsuspecting customers that Jumia enjoys the patronage of or endorsement of RMD.
RMD has since instructed his lawyer, Mena Ajakpovi of Messrs. Abraham & Co. to engage Jumia and seek redress at the law court if they are defiant. Jumia’s response has definitely been defiant and unapologetic.

They admitted that they had taken the images from the actor’s page but that it was not an infringement of his copyright since the image was on a public Instagram platform. This is even though they are using the image to promote their online fashion trade on their website page! They offered to take the page down but have shown neither remorse nor offered any conciliatory compensation!

Adebanjo Oladele Samuel

sue dem for what? Simply bcos money hasn't be given to him that's why he wants to run mad. Shouldn't be coming from a man of such pedigree.

@samuel: RMD is a brand, JUMIA is also a brand. In business, infringement means violation of the terms of an agreement, encroachment, trespass, or disregard of others' rights, such as invasion of an exclusive right of .../ RMD thinks JUMIA ignored him while doing business with his name

Jeremiah Ademolu

This is strictly business, pedigree has nothing to do with it. Time and conditions always attached to such agreement, once one of the party break that "time and conditions" then the other party can be sue.

Samuel u talk like you don't know the extent of what JUMIA did, so anyone can pick you pic online and use right? imagine....even as I am when a photographer I worked with used my pic as a wall paper for his studio he asked my opinion, tho didn't pay for it. Now you're saying it as if he wants their damn money or their chicken change has been keeping him all this while. Please talk sense

Smith Abiye

JUMIA must pay, RMD shouldn't take it easy since they feel they're right by collecting his pic from his IG page, why didn't they use Kim Kardasian or Kenya West's pic are they not on IG? rubbish ppl
