THE CREATIVES DILEMMA

• Aisha is a baker. She makes various cake designs that she posts online. Aisha made this particular cake design that went viral on Social media and she received many accolades online and offline for the beautiful cake she made . Few months later , Foluke makes a cake that a lot of people believe is a replica of Aisha's viral Cake design . Same design and everything except the colour of the cake . Foluke insists since it's a different colour , she did not copy Aisha and Aisha should stop disturbing her to take down the picture of her own cake she posted She further stated to Aisha that there's nothing she can Do to her .

• At the end of it all, Aisha felt folake was right. After all, it wasn't the same cake colour and she added a bit of twist to her own cake design and even though she knew very well that folake copied her idea, she was going to leave everything to God.

The Creatives Dilemma

• Oke is a music producer . In 2019, he produced a smash hit track titled " Jump In" for an A list artiste in Nigeria . In 2020, a big company wanted to use the Instrumentals and composition of the song in their video games and contacted the artist he produced the song for. The artiste was paid over 20 million naira but Oke never got a Dime. The artiste claimed he had paid Oke his " production " fees and he is the sole owner of the song . Thus, he wasnt going to give Oke anything after he has bought and paid Oke fully for the song production .
