In a video sighted by LailasNews, the journalist can be seen stating that the movie is her work and life experience, and wondered why she wasn’t given due credit for it. She said;
” ‘Oloture’ does not closely resemble my work, It is a copy and paste of my work. Oloture is my life story. Whosoever claimed they wrote that script should be flogged”.
