The campaign tagged 'United We Stand' is a call to action against injustice which also implores the Nigerian public to take extra steps to preserve hard work and to ensure consumer safety.

In an exclusive interview, she revealed entrepreneurs from the fashion, movie and other industries "will come together as a collective to be able to use one voice to fight something that has affected all of us whether in terms of intellectual property.."

Making a case with a close example she shares; "I have a friend who is a famous author who wrote numeracy books for primary and secondary schools and unfortunately even though she's put in so much effort... unfortunately that woman has not enjoyed the benefit of her seed".

She made a case for Nigerian actors who spend months shooting movies only to get the movies pirated and shares instances where House of Tara, Sleek Cosmetics and Zaron Cosmetics products are 'faked' and consumers buy which needs to stop.
