Kunle Afolayan raised the alarm last week that they were already threatening to release it. Here is what Femi Branch, an actor, has to say about the development: “The pirates have made good their threat and are now selling pirated DVD of OCTOBER 1ST on d streets! Pls DO NOT BUY! Every
copy u buy destroys not only Kunle Afolayan’s business but our industry as well! Enough is enough! It is buyers that empower pirates, if u don’t patronize them, they will b forced to close shop!
If u really love us and the movies we make, pls avoid buying pirated CDs or DVDs of our films. Watch them in Cinemas or buy only certified original copies. Pls HELP SHARE/REPOST/REGRAM whatever. This msg must quickly get to man or woman who is about to buy dat fake copy of OCTOBER 1ST or 30 DAYS IN ATLANTA!!!.” In his reaction, Kunle Afolayan, said: “Here they are! Please ignore them. Original DVD of October 1 has never been released. Let’s fight piracy together.
Pirated copies of October 1 film is now released by the Pirates and everywhere on the street. We have been announcing and alerting the people on government for years. Is this how we will fold our hands and look? It is my turn today, it may be yours tomorrow. I am devastated. It’s a hostile country. PLEASE DO NOT BUY.”……. and if u av bought n watched it in error, pls “unwatch” it by pressing rewind and return it to d seller wtout narrating d film to anyone. Tenx…..
