Nollywood actress and producer Stephanie Okereke-Linus is embroiled in a copyright infringement battle over her much acclaimed movie DRY. DRY allegedly has “substantial similarity” and semblance to an original work, titled ‘BEHIND HER VEIL,’ written by lawyer and scriptwriter, Daniella Madudu. This work is said to have been written as early as 2011.In the documents prepared by Lagos based solicitors, Rafiu Bello & co, the obviously distraught Madudu is requesting credits as owner of the original story, since a substantial part of ‘BEHIND HER VEIL’ was adapted for the movie DRY. In addition to this, she is requesting a suitable compensation of Sixty Million Naira, and royalties, failing which she has threatened civil and criminal action against Stephanie Okereke-Linus and her associate, Joy Ndidi.
