"She shot video and the client doesn’t like the work done. And her position is take it or leave," his tweet read in part.

@olaondeck went on to note that they do not want a full refund of the N1.5 million but at least expect a sense of concession from the comic star.

In a different tweet, the filmmaker also made a reference to comedian Maraji, claiming that she and her team members are difficult to work with.

"Maraji didn’t do anything in this situation and she is a fantastic storyteller. However, ask anyone who has worked with her and her team, she’s not the easiest person to work with. Hence the reason for the honest comparison."
