The actor, who plays "Spiff" in the TV series, 'The Johnsons', began his acting career at the age of six, appearing in Opa Williams' 'Tears of Love'.
Ajibola stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
According to him, this should prove a wise decision as he feels pirates will not give up their trade easily since they are making money from it.
“Recently, the government has joined forces in supporting the film industry and so we expect things to get better, but no because of the nefarious activities of pirates”,
“The fight against piracy is not going to be an easy one as these pirates themselves survive and make a living through this crooked means.”
“Incorporating them into the scheme of things would go a long way in curbing what wrong they are doing”,
“If there is a possible roundtable discussion with the pirates to integrate them, it would go a long way to help curb piracy.”
“Making them legal stakeholders in the industry will improve things and intellectual properties will be better off,”
“It is cheap, free and convenient for them to get that economic huge benefit for themselves and rob the owners of their benefits.”
“The chances of them being caught are slim; the chances of them being given punishment that will deter them are even slimmer.”
“They know they will get away with what they are doing because there are no stiff punishment for them.”
This view might feel rather strange to some, especially producers who have seen their works get into the market before their release date.
Samuel Ajibola, who plays the character “Spiff”, in the Africa Magic TV series, ‘The Johnsons’, started his acting at the age of six.
He featured in the movie ‘Tears of Love’, produced by Opa Williams.
