Hi-BUZZ( highway distribution), the sole distributor of the award winning film ‘The Figurine’ has stepped up action to protect the movie from the pirate with a raid in collaboration with NCC( Nigeria copyright commission).

The raid was targeted at the Alaba International Market, a market known for its hub of piracy activities in West Africa sub region.

In January, Hi-BUZZ limited sent a petition to the Lagos office of the copyright commission in respect of ‘The Figurine’. Another petition also came from Sun-Tab film Nigeria limited in respect of its film ETI KETA already being pirated and also sold in some shops at Alaba Market. The pirated and original copies of the said work were sent alongside the demo.

On Wednesday, February 10, 2012, the NCC Lagos office conducted an ANTI- PIRACY raid on the said shops at Alaba Market. About 11 shops were raided and exhibit impounded.

A statement from Hi-BUZZ reiterates its resolve to see the infringers of the Figurine brought to book.

However, the market association in Alaba maket is working with the distributor of ‘The Figurine’ and the government agency saddled with the copyright protection. ‘The market association is very cooperative and they are equally miffed that such act of piracy is going on in Alaba after they have assured the government of the cooperation in the fight against piracy’

The original DVD of ‘The Figurine’ comes with almost four hours of content including the two-hour movie and additional features such as The Making and deleted scenes.

AMAA awards best picture 2010, best actor in lead role, best heart of Africa film, best visual effect and best cinematography winner,‘The Figurine’ is also available at the silver bird galleria and on street.

Jim Iyke

Star actor and Nollywood’s ‘bad boy’ Jim Iyke was reportedly at the receiving end of an altercation that left him severely battered, prompting a surgical operation in the UK recently.

The actor was said to have received this ‘treatment’ in a Cameroonian town called Limbe where he was part of the cast taking part in a movie there.

According to sources, and unconfirmed media reports, the actor, in company of an un-named movie producer had gone to a local hang out spot to unwind after the day’s business, but was prevented from relaxing by fans, mostly females who were all over him once they recognised him.

Things however took a different turn when an army personnel, angered by the fact that Jim Iyke had taken advantage of the situation to flirt with his lady friend, approached him. We’re told a scuffle ensued in which the actor emerged all bloodied and bruised.

A source who has worked with the actor on various occasions confirmed the situation.

I know he (Jim Iyke) was involved in a fracas that left him in bad shape lately. I think he let his arrogance get the better of him that day, a costly mistake he would have by now realised considering the fact that he was dealing with someone trained to kill with or without weapons. I don’t know for a fact if he was flown to Britain for surgery though‘.

However, debunking the story that a lady was involved in the saga, the actor’s lawyer, Esther Uzoma, speaking in court during the actor’s on-going share scam trial, stated that he was inadvertently injured by fans who mobbed him upon realising who he was in that country during a video shoot.

She was explaining the reason to trial judge Azubuike Okeagu, why he wasn’t in court that day (Tuesday March 13, 2012) since he was receiving treatment at a hospital.

Your worship, I wish to bring to your notice that my client, James Ikechukwu Esomugha, known as Jim Iyke, is presently in hospital, as it stands presently, he is not fit to stand his trial as the constitution requires … He was mobbed in Cameroun when he went for a video shoot last week‘.

This is not the first time the actor, whose real name is James Ikechukwu Esomugha, has been in the middle of a scuffle case.

In 2009, he was allegedly beaten by soldiers in Katsina, and then made to continue work in a movie after he threatened to leave for reasons bordering on contract terms.

He is currently involved in a share scam case in the nation’s capital of Abuja, after having allegedly duped one Hajia Abiba Abubakar the sum of 15 million naira purportedly representing 15 per cent stake in his music label, Untamed Records.

The case has however been adjourned for hearing to April 17, 2012.
