Sadly, the actor said a colleague who was aware of his movie with the small-sized Ramota is doing the same thing. According to Jamiu, the colleague invited Aunty Ramota to a movie set and gave her the same role that she is performing in his movie.

Pained by the matter, the film star burst into tears, noting that the movie is different from his other productions because it became popular even though it has not been concluded.

He said:

"I sold my land, I spoke to people I'm not supposed to talk to, and even borrowed some money just because of this movie. After I finished filming, my colleague did not wait for me to release it before you started making your own. You compiled the short clips I posted on social media and wrote a story around it for your own movie, what did I do to deserve this? This is the first production that I will be doing in my name, please let me record a profit."
