Versatile Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun better known as AY, is not happy with the way movie marketers now sort to deceive people into buying some certain movies by renaming it from its original title.

The comedian cum actor recently drew the attention of fans to the movie produced by actress, Juliet Ibrahim titled, 'The number 1 fan,' which has been released long ago but to lure movie fans into buying it, a marketer in Nigeria decided to change the name of the movie into 'Inspector Ay.'

Meanwhile, AY has disassociated himself from having anything to do with the title of the movie while calling on fans to be on the watch out not to fall victim of the fake movie title and has threatened legal pursuit on the marketer.

According to AY, “I have recently discovered that a Nigerian movie marketer has resorted to fraudulent way to market his movie. The movie is actually titled 'The Number One Fan' but the marketer has chosen to rename the movie 'Inspector Ay' to deceive Nigerians into buying the movie.

“This is to formally disassociate myself and brand from the title being used to deceive Nigerians. I only acted as a supporting actor in the movie. But this marketer has chosen this deceptive means to market the movie.

“Please be rest assured that I plan to use all legal instruments available within the country's copyright laws to correct this illegality.”
