Actor Uti Nwachuku of Nollywood has accused Ghanaian TikTok sensation Kojo Asante Kesse, also known as Wesley Kesse, of stealing his idea for a photoshoot without giving him or the photographer any credit.

After Wesley uploaded the images on the photo-sharing app, Instagram, to celebrate his birthday, the former Big Brother Africa winner voiced his disgust in the digital content developer for copying his artistic work “in broad daylight.”

On Wednesday, April 19, 2023, the influencer celebrated his 30th birthday by sharing photographs of a wonderful vacation to the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar.

On Instagram, Uti posted a side-by-side comparison of his photoshoot and Wesley’s, in which he claimed that the photographer of the original concept is furious about Wesley Kesse’s dishonest exploitation of her original creative idea and is thinking about suing him.

“I’m all about inspiration 100 per cent… But as a fellow creative, @wesleykessegh U should know better naaa Come on bro,” he noted.

In addition, Uti exposed the picture studio Image Studios and Ghanaian stylist Osei Kwaku Esq. as complicit in the intellectual property theft.

On Instagram, his post has received a range of responses. Some users claim that the concept isn’t his own or that he hasn’t patented it, while others argue that content producers should be open and truthful about their sources of inspiration.
