According to Udobang, Akinmolayan's open short film project "Room 315," which is currently in pre-production by Anthill, was copied from her web series, "Room 313."

After watching the four episodes of "Room 313" and reading Abosi Ogba's "Room 315," we have put together seven differences/similarities between the controversial works.

1. "Room 313" is a web series that revolves around a therapist and her patients. "Room 315" is a short film that revolves around a therapist and his patients.

2. There is a 'room' in both productions. A room that plays a huge role in their titles.

4. The characters from "Room 313" have gone through different ordeals from the characters in "Room 315". There are no similarities in the trauma that lead them to a therapist. 

5. The therapist is profoundly important in "Room 315." There is a name for the character in "Room 315" - Dr. Stone. The therapist in "Room 313" is invisible, and there is no background or formal introduction of the character.
