Veteran Nollywood actor Ramsey Nouah has incurred the wrath of a graphic designer who has taken to Twitter to slam the actor for using her work without any compensation.
The graphic designer, identified as Louisajlo in a series of tweets, accused the prominent actor of using her work in the making of the sequel to the 1993 movie, Living in Bondage, saying Nouah hired her, used her and has refused to pay her.
She wrote in part, “Dear Twitter, I said I will make a thread. So I will. In 2018, I was contacted to work as a graphic designer for the ‘Living in Bondage’ movie. I was very excited as I had never been on a big project like that before hence I knew nothing and did nothing related to paperwork”.
“I just accepted the job and started working straight away. The only thing I remember requesting was a down payment. But the then media director pleaded that the budget was yet to be approved but I shouldn’t worry. As soon as it is. He will avail me some funds towards my charge”.
“Almost 2 years after Living in Bondage (Breaking Free is out and guess what, they used my designs in the movie. My blood and sweat, my sleepless nights and broken backs after claiming they were not good enough. Worse of, I wasn’t credited, I wasn’t paid. I wasn’t even compensated”
