Skit maker Sabinus sues peak milk for using his trademark

Oga Sabinus' manager, Nwabufo Micheal, told Premium Times on Monday(30 May) that his talent management firm had sued the corporations on his behalf.

Oga Sabinus, a famous Nigerian comedian and sketch creator, has sparked outrage after his management slapped a N1 billion complaint against Friesland Campina WAMCO Nigeria PLC- producers of Peak milk for unlicensed use of his trademark ‘something hooge.’

In addition, the comedian requested N100 million from UAC Foods for utilizing his animated picture in an advertisement for the Gala sausage roll.

Oga Sabinus’ manager, Nwabufo Micheal, told Premium Times on Monday(30 May) that his talent management firm had sued the corporations on his behalf.

”Sabinus is not the one demanding the money; it is the management requesting the money. I used to be in the modelling industry. Sometimes, a brand will use a model for three years without paying anything for them.”

“There is no way the brands will not still come to me because I manage the best of the best content creators; people should stop tackling Sabinus and face the management that sued the companies.”

Mr Nwabufo further stated that the litigation is not about individual talent, but rather about everyone who benefits from the skit-making industry.

”It’s time to hold the brands that use our materials without any form of compensation, payment, or a contract agreement knowing full well that intellectual property theft and infringement is a punishable offences by the law. I and my entire team, “Mike Premium Talent Management”, will chase this particular offence to the end,” he said.

The talent manager said he is seeking justice for his client Mr Sabinus and has sent the necessary letters through his lawyers.
