A young Nigerian man, Kolade Morakinyo, has jumped on the horrible bosses trend to call out actress Funke Akindele Bello and her husband, JJC Skillz.
Taking to Twitter, Kolade recounted how he was contacted to work on the Omo Ghetto The Saga project at a late time and how he had sleepless nights while trying to deliver.
The young man added that after the work was done and sent to the cinemas, it got a lot of great reviews even from JJC himself. Kolade also proceeded to share a video of JJC praising the work.

However, the sound designer noted that when the AMVCA nominee list was announced, he was shocked to see that his name wasn’t there but was replaced by someone who only did the film score.
Kolade added that he reached out to JJC to complain and that the filmmaker apologised and noted that he had sent a mail to AMVCA because it was a mistake.
The aggrieved young man however noted that nothing had been done and that the person who was wrongfully nominated was celebrating the achievement on his social media page and enjoying all the attention from his work and sweat.

Puffy Tee reacts to Morakinyo's claims
In a chat with Legit.ng Puffy Tee reacted after Morakinyo claimed he was credited for his work on Omo Ghetto at the AMVCAs.
Puffy Tee noted that a number of people came to his page to call him a thief and accuse him of stealing someone else’s credit.
According to him, he wasn’t the one who announced himself as the AMVCA nominee and he was only employed to do the job.
The young man noted that his job is related to sound editing. Puffy Tee added that before the job got to Kolade’s table, people had already started working on the sound of the project and he cannot claim that someone else did not work on the sound.
Puffy added that Kolade's rant on social media came off as if he did not do anything on the project and the issue stemmed from AMVCA not breaking down the nomination category and lumping it together.

In his words:
“I am part of the sound editor. I edited, he (Kolade) also edited, so both of us did that work. The work didn’t just jump down from heaven and get to his table.”
Puffy also added that they all had sleepless nights while working on the project, not just Kolade.
On a final note, the young man concluded that the fault was from AMVCA and both of them should have been credited for the work.
In his words:
“When they said sound editor, ofcos I know I edited sound on the job, so we are both entitled to the whole thing.”

The artist who appears to make a name by recreating popular people’s photos in funny ways finally used the movie star as his muse.
Oniyakuya’s recreation of Funke's photo was eventually sighted by the actress who then reposted it as she called him out.
