Shanty Town – Ini Edo, Chinyere Nworah Fight Over Ownership

As the dispute over Shanty Town ownership rages on, Ini Edo and Chinenye Nworah unfollow one another on Instagram.

Actress Ini Edo and co-producer Chinenye Nworah of Shanty Town have unfollowed one another on Instagram as a result of a legal dispute over the series’ ownership.

The two are no longer following one another on Instagram, according to QEDNG’s inspection of their profiles on Monday.

Ini Edo wants all talks about the sequel to stop, as she claims co-ownership and rights to the production, according to a leaked cease-and-desist warning letter that her attorneys wrote to Netflix.

“It has come to our client’s attention that Netflix is currently negotiating a sequel to the cinematograph film – Shanty Town with Ms Chinenye Nworahand Giant Creative Media Limited (GCM) without the consent, knowledge or waiver of our client as co-owners of the intellectual property rights over the work Shanty Town.

“Please be advised that Ms Chineye Nworah and GCM are not the sole owners of the intellectual property rights over the Cinematograph film Shanty Town. Our clients are co-owners of the intellectual property rights and they have not authorised, permitted or sanctioned Ms Chinenye Nworah and GCM to discuss any sequel with Ntelfix on its behalf,” the letter read in parts.

However, Chinenye refuted any idea of shared ownership with Ini Edo in a surprising response through her own attorneys, branding her assertions as “false and malicious”.

January 2023 saw the release of Shanty Town.

Ini Edo, Richard Mofe–Damijo, Chidi Mokeme, Nse Ikpe–Etim, Ali Nuhu, Uche Jombo, Zubby Michael, Omowunmi Dada, Mercy Eke, Regina Daniels, Judith Audu, Toyin Abraham, and Peter Okoye of P-Square are the leading ladies in the series.
