Beautiful actress and filmmaker, Stephanie Linus is irate at the allegations that her acclaimed film Dry is a work she stole. The complainant, Daniella Madudu claims that Dry is her intellectual property and there are indications that, like Okafor’s Law, an elongated legal battle lies ahead.
Madudu claimed she gave manuscripts of her book to a friend – Joy Ndidi – for editing after which Ndidi became an assistant to Linus, thus explaining the replication of the story.
Linus in a recent chat with newsmen debunked ever stealing the story. Hear her:”Because you’re a popular person, someone thinks that they can wake up from anywhere and lie or smear your personality. It just doesn’t make sense; this movie has been on the public space for how many years?
“I’m almost moving to the next project and all of a sudden you just remember that something happened. It’s really outrageous and I just feel it’s very sad and maybe people should pick their battle and watch the person they need to attack”.
