Omoni Oboli Denies She Copied Her Movie From A Hollywood Movie
We would want you to know the genesis of what happened to Omoni Oboli before her talk on crab mentality. Her soon-to-be-released movie, 'WIVES ON STRIKE,' which is about a group of women who decide to deprive their men of sex for the sake of a cause, was said to have been copied (or stolen) from the movie, 'Chiraq', which was produced and directed by the internationally acclaimed ace filmmaker, Spike Lee. The Actress is not talking this talk lightly;
She wrote “For those who do not know what the Crab Mentality is, let me first describe it using the Wikipedia: Crab mentality, sometimes referred to as the 'crab in the bucket', is a way of thinking best described by the phrase, “if I can't have it, neither can you.” The metaphor refers to a bucket or pot of crabs. Individually, the crabs could easily escape from the pot, instead they grab at each other in a useless “king of the hill” competition which prevents any from escaping and ensure their collective demise. ..
“…Haba! When are we ever going to give ourselves a chance or a break from the hateful, condescending, self-loathing, low self esteem, pull down syndrome that basically surmises our position as truly living with the 'Crab mentality'? When would we, like other nations, first take time to celebrate, and then do our due diligence to find out the truth before we start mouthing off words that we can't affirm often with the intention of pulling our own down?
