Ohimai Godwin Amaize, Nigerian media personality better known as Mr Fix Nigeria, has accused VConnect of copyright infringement.

VConnect is an online platform that helps users hire local professionals for all their service needs.

Mr Fix Nigeria says the platform commercialised his images in sponsored Facebook posts without authorisation.

In a tweet on Friday, the media personality and model said he has directed his lawyers to write the company over the unauthorised commercialisation.

“I have directed my lawyers to write the management of @vconnectnigeria for commercialising my images and using same in sponsored Facebook adverts without my authorisation,” he wrote.

Sequel to Mr Fix Nigeria’s tweet, VConnect issued an acknowledgment of the said infringement and disclosed that it had reprimanded the agency responsible for using Ohimai’s images in the adverts.

“Hi Ohimai, we acknowledge your complaint and also stand against copyright infringement. This set of ads were taken down and we have taken strict actions against the agency involved,” VConnect tweeted.

Mr Fix Nigeria is a media personality, political strategist, and publisher. He is married to Tessy Oliseh-Amaize, a fashion designer and younger sister of Nigerian football legend, Sunday Oliseh.
