Damijo may be planning to take online
shopping platform, Jumia to court over the unauthorized use of his photo on the brand's Instagram page dedicated to fashion.
RMD believes that the unauthorized use of his image to promote Jumia products and website has enhanced brand awareness about Jumia's fashion line at his expense. The Diamond
Ringactor is said to have asked his lawyer, Mena Ajakpovi of Messrs. Abraham & Co. to engage Jumia on the matter but they have been defiant and unapologetic.
Even though they admitted to taking the images from the actor's Instagram page, they claim there is no copyright infringement case since the image was on a public platform.
Jumia has since taken down the photo but RMD's lawyer stated that they have shown no remorse nor offered any conciliatory compensation.
Because of this, RMD has decided to sue Jumia for punitive and exemplary damages for the infringement of his image rights.
