#BBNaija's Tobi Bakare accussed of intellectual poperty theft

“This quite painful knowing fully well that Tobi is also a creative person. Man with no conscience! I wounder if people just do things without thinking or knwoing the consequences of their actions.

“How will you (@tobibakre) feel if you shared an idea with someone and this happened? I respect your hustle G but this is all wrong. Do better- and no! They never asked for money for the shoot- it was just an idea they needed to do and sponsor the shoot.

“This is so unfair to the twins (@ayofilmit and @shutterbuoy) and to 26views Media,” a message from @DirectedByDiji read.

As at the time of filing in this report, Tobi Bakare, a graduate from the University of Lagos in 2012 with a degree in Banking And Finance, had not confirmed or denied the allegations levelled against him.
