"A lot of people are saying that I should pull down my BIGO MADNESS, please see my reason why I'm not going to pull it down, I was accused of shooting a misleading content, which is not true, they wrote to Bigo authority that I'm trying to tarnish their image, which is also not true. So pulling down the movie right now is like throwing away my evidence," Okoro wrote on Instagram.

The film starring Destiny Etiko and Okoro, centers on the new craze around the live streaming app that sees it as a business venture where users make money from sharing diverse, sometimes seductive, content.
