Popular actor and media personality, Uti Nwachukwu, has accused Ghanaian TikToker, Wesley Kess, of stealing his birthday photoshoot concept without proper acknowledgment.
Recall that in August 2022, Uti had a Jesus-themed photoshoot to mark his 40th birthday. Uti draped a white satin cloth across his body and tied a white scarf around his head with minimal jewelry.
Interestingly, Wesley, who celebrated his birthday on Thursday, April 19, shared a similar photo of himself dressed in all-white to mark his new age.
Uti upon stumbling on the pictures, took to his Instagram page to call out Wesley for copying his concept without giving proper credit to him and his photographer.
“At first I laughed 😄. Cos what in da ‘what I ordered’ is this ? THE ALACRITY 🤯😩😄
But it’s easy to Laugh when it’s not your sweat and brain power that has been preyed on. My Photographer @idaraadiakpan_ /@sbdstudios_ is Livid ! THIS WAS ALL HER IDEA ooo ! I was just her muse. IT WAS HER GIFT TO ME FOR MY 40th! CHALEEEE THIS IS PART OF HER LIFE’S WORK.
I’m all about inspiration 100 percent … But as a fellow creative, @wesleykessegh U should know better naaa🧐
Come on bro. A simple message to my photographer and/or me would have sufficed 😑👏🏾😑
Your team : Photog @_imagestudios_ stylist @_osei_kwaku_esq should have done same.
Even a tag or mention honouring her might have been excused.
