In the entertainment industry, some creative people are often taken advantage of.
For lack of experience, most of the creatives, which include musicians, actors, graphic designers, photographers, and others, often work on projects with little or no compensation at all. Most of the time, they are not even credited for their work.
Nigerian graphic designer, Louisa Jlo took to Twitter to share a thread of how she was contacted to work on Ramsey Nouah’s “Living in Bondage” movie which is available on Netflix.
Louisa, after spending hours working on the project, was eventually let go.
She was not paid, yet the work was used for the movie.
It turned out that the Media Director, Jim Franklin, was reportedly paid for the creatives Louisa developed and he was allegedly passing off the work as his.
This came to light when Nigerian actress, Kate Henshaw took up the allegations and contacted Ramsey Nuoah herself for explanation.
After the public outcry and the intervention of Kate Henshaw, Ramsey Nouah’s attention was drawn to the issue and his team has since moved forward to resolve the issue.
What this highlights, is the lack of regulation of the creative sector and how young creatives are often taken advantage of by others in the industry.
