Nigerian Designer Alleges Ebuka Obi-Uchendu Stole Her Concept
Written by thrilliant on October 24, 2018
A Nigerian fashion designer identified as Omonigho Aito-Imonah has taken to her Instagram page to call out Nigerian socialite Ebuka, who she claimed stole one of the concepts of her original designs in his outfit to the premiere of the movie King of Boys.
According to Omonigho, she participated at the GTBank Sketch to Fame Challenge and she could not but wonder how Ebuka’s designer could have gotten the inspiration of her concept, if not that he stole after coming across it at the show.
Before taking to Instagram to express her displeasure at Ebuka, she mentioned that she brought the situation to the show host’s attention, but he ignored her and even deleted the comment she made on his post.
“So yesterday, I brought to your notice the incredible similarities between my design and that of @ebuka. I find it really flattering that although this look did not make top 3 at the @gtbank sketch to fame challenge, @ebuka and his designer thought it worthy to gain inspiration for their design from, which went viral.
What I have a problem with, however, is not giving me any credits whatsoever. I reached out to @ebuka, who deleted my comment. I tried to be a lady… But I guess it’s time to go gangsta!… So here it goes”
