The lies and propaganda of Tony Okoroji and COSON have caught up with them..
Last week Tony Okoroji and his team went around social Media claiming that he was not arrested and none of his staff was arrested. But this week the same man that called the event of his invitation to the Police Headquarters in Abuja a fake news is the same person admitting that the security agencies, namely the Nigeria Police, the Directorate of State Security (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) are after him because he was allegedly collecting money illegally and using it for his personal gains.
We all remember that the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) suspended COSON license and finally revoked it altogether for lack of transparency and accountability. The Nigerian Broadcasting Commission also included in the 6th Amendment of the Broadcast Code that all users of Intellectual Property must pay royalties and contact the NCC if they are not sure of which Collective Management Organization (CMO) to pay.
Well, the chicken has finally come home to roost as Tony Okoroji is now running from pillar to post looking for the authority that will protect his suspected criminalities or that will ask the security agencies not to question and investigate his activities as COSON chairman.
He has brazenly presented his organisation to a lot of corporate companies which has now become accomplices in misapportioning monies meant for musicians while impersonating as a Collective Management Organisation (CMO) without Approval or Licence to do so.
When all his connections has apparently failed him he has now ran to court to aiming to stop the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Department of State Services (DSS) from investigating him.
Why are they afraid of Police investigation by running to the court to seek refuge from being investigated? We keep our fingers crossed.
We will wait to see how a former public company which was registered as Limited by Guarantee handling public funds wants to stop the Nigerian Government and its law enforcement agencies from investigating the collections and spending of monies belonging to Nigerian Musicians in the name COSON without approval and in the face of a subsisting judgment nullifying the company.
The interests of Nigerian Musicians are bigger than the interest of an individual who claims to be all-knowing, all powerful and bigger than any institution or authority in Nigeria.
We at PMAN said it before that this individual can fool us sometimes but he cannot fool us all the time.
Whether he sues the Federal Government and add the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Tony Okoroji will still give account of what happened to the monies he collected on behalf of musicians in Nigeria. The era of manipulation of people and the legal system will not continue anymore.
Going to file a Fundamental Human Rights case against the Agencies of government cannot give anyone cover to continue in illegal operations or stop the agencies from carrying out their constitutional duties. If those concerned, Tony Okoroji and his team, have not done anything wrong why then are they afraid of been investigated?
COSON has been proscribed by the judgment of the Federal High Court in Suit No: FHC/L/CS/274/2010 and as such COSON is not a juristic person and it is no longer known to law in Nigeria.
We are ready to call out and expose whosoever tries to connive with Okoroji and COSON to obstruct the agencies from doing their civic duties of Investigation on matters involving huge amounts of money belonging to Nigerian Musicians and their foreign counterparts whose music are exploited in Nigeria, which were apparently paid and collected under false pretences.
Your strategy of propaganda has failed because we are all wiser in the industry Now.
PMAN is following the unfolding events and will be giving musicians regular updates as the drama continues.
What Inspired New Movie “Ola” – Popular Actress, Kiitan Bukola Reveals
Oloruntimilehin Bukola popularly known as Kiitan is one of the wave-making actresses in the movie industry. This very humble, highly talented and down to earth actress has achieved so much as an actress cum producer within a short period in the industry, compared to many of her contemporaries, and she is leaving no stone unturned to still achieve more in the industry.
Kiitan achieved so much in 2021 from acquiring a house, to buying an exotic car, bagging several awards for her exceptional role interpretations in movies.
Despite all these, she still not relenting as she will be premiering her 4th movie titled “Ola” soon.
In this interview with City People’s BIODUN ALAO, she talked about what really inspired her latest movie, how she has been able to achieve so much in a short while and why she has been keeping to herself in the industry. Below are the excerpts.
What inspired your latest movie titled “Ola”?
My latest movie titled “Ola” (Tomorrow) was inspired by the things I have seen about life. A lot of things are happening today that many even forget there is tomorrow and also they have forgotten many things we do today determines our tomorrow.
What should expect from this latest movie and the premiere?
I want people to expect something new and different, it is very different from my usual movie. When I sit back and watch. I am always surprised that I could come out with I thank God. I was able to change my character from what people are used to watch, so people can see another part of me as an actor.
How have you been able to achieve so much as a young actress in the industry?
It’s been God, I am only trying my best so I give God all the glory. I am not perfect but God has been indeed faithful.
The year 2021 was a very fulfilling one for you, what is the secret?
The truth is 2021, I focused more on my career, when I joined the movie industry, I had a target and I always want people to know that the Yoruba movie industry is actually not what people think of it.
Some will even say oh Yoruba movies I don’t want to watch it, but I actually want to try my best to change that narrative through my own movie by producing unique and interesting movies that they can learn from. We have good producers that produce fantastic movies in the industry and I want to be counted among those very few.
What is the secret of your success in the industry?
There is actually no secrets anywhere I am only trying my very best to do something different and unique.
I have been trying so hard to challenge myself and do something some other people believe it is too difficult for them.
If you have the opportunity to change anything now about yourself in the industry, what would it be?
Honestly, absolutely nothing. I don’t want to change anything but rather work harder to be a better person. You are also one actress that tends to always mind her business in the industry, what prompted that decision?
Naturally, I am a lane minder, even outside the industry, I mind my business and keep to myself a lot. Some will say it is because I am arrogant but truly I am not a proud person. I am a very emotional person, I get hurt easily, so as much as I don’t want to hurt people, I won’t encourage anyone to hurt me too. So that is why I mind my business.
I don’t like being taken for granted. I am always happy for people’s success and celebrate them. I enjoy being on my own.
What is your next plan after this movie?
I would like to do something better and bigger than this again. I just always want to be a step ahead.
Do you have any regret so far in the industry?
I don’t have any regret so far. Being famous actually rob one of her privacy, maybe that is the only regret so far. I am this person that doesn’t like putting my family in the limelight. I don’t want anybody to know about my relationship but being popular people wants to know about your everything and that is very scary so that is like the only aspect I don’t like.
What is your greatest desire in the industry?
The greatest desire in my career is to be at the very top, become an A-list actor, though I know it requires lots of hard work and I am working tirelessly towards that. I want to see myself in Hollywood, I want to see myself on Netflix and make my fans really proud.
How many movies have you produced so far?
I have been in the industry for a while now and I have produced 3 movies. My latest movie “Ola” (Tomorrow) is my fourth production and it will be premiered on the 27th of December and I honestly can’t wait for people to see it, it is far from the usual.
I know what I am talking about. I had to challenge myself this time around. I can’t wait to start getting reviews.
