Aki seeks royalty for sale of wedding pictures and videos
Contrary to speculations of plans to drag Kas-Vid Ventures to court for illegally selling the video coverage of his traditional and white wedding ceremonies, star actor Chinedu Ikedieze,popularly known as Aki has said he is willing to continue discussions with the marketer.
In a recent chat, the petite thespian gave a vivid narration of how he came in contact with the video and how some outfits have taken advantage of the massive publicity of his marriage to his heartthrob Nneoma to make money without any recourse to decorum or even pay him royalty.
Aki said, many business minded people seem to have seen an opportunity to use my marriage ceremony to make money. If you move around the country, from Lagos to Port-Harcourt, you can see the massive sales of my wedding pictures.
Many magazines published details of the marriage ceremonies. Then this video.
Actually a friend of mine brought the video to me. It was then I decided to call the marketer of the video.
The people just went ahead to sell this stuff without getting any permission or even consider paying any royalty.So,it is now a common thing everywhere you go.
