Popular Nigerian actress, Tonto Dike following her Christmas themed photo shoot has been in the eyes of the storm.

The actress who is currently facing the heat with the photographer identified as Charliel Photography on instagram, slammed the actress saying she had no right to remove their watermark from the pictures/photographs as it is their intellectual property.

Tonto Dike while reacting to the post said since she paid for the pictures, she has every right to do whatever she pleases with it.

Saturday noon, vugo called and tonto was on the other end saying the price is too much as she can only pay 50,000 for a full day shoot, now get me correctly, We are pricy, we know what we are doing,anyone who has used our services in the past will tell you this ,so we needed tonto to know that this wasnt about her been a celebrity! She kept arguing about paying 100,000,Finally vugo paid 40,000 Saturday night and balanced 60,000 24th dec. We did our part and delivered the images, then @vugo24 and @tontolet requested we remove our watermarks from the images, we clearly told her it was impossible as it was our intellectual property and rights,as this request wasnt stated from the onset, You wont go to a Gucci shop and ask the company to remove their trademarks because you paid for it (as tonto claimed in her sms that she already paid for the services) so what?? She then had the nerves to go re-edit the images by removing our watermarks.
@tontolet I've lost all the respect i had for you as a human being,as you claim to empower and encourage young people and their enterprises but you LIE, you are FAKE, and you have disrespected a CREATIVE,I WILL BE NICE TO POST THE UNEDITED IMAGES WITH ALL YOUR FLAWS. SHAME ON YOU @TONTOLET. You may have been doing this to other creatives but dont ever try this with a professional! Your LEAN 100K WASNT WORTH STEALING OUR RIGHTS

These are the said photos:

Firstly, this photographer you are very very stupid. She paid for it and have every right to yank you off. I personally tell my photographers to remove their trade mark and tell numbers from my pix. It's her right. You only leave it if you are doing it for free. Now, writing that she angrily dragged her son makes you more stupid. What are you trying to tell the world? Ok now that you have released the unedited pix, are you happy? You are just one hell of a silly angry silly junk seeking cheap attention. You are too bitter. May God forgive you.

I support crazewoman tonto for this matter. She has paid u period, and has a right to do whatever she likes with her pictures. Did u pay her to advertise your company or brand? If i buy Gucci clothe that i like but i don't like the Gucci logo and i pick up a razor blade and remove the logo, will Gucci harass me for removing their logo?

Sometimes I don’t understand how stupid people can be, She paid for your service and ask you to remove your useless trademark from what she paid for, you refuse and when she did it herself,you went ahead to publish her pictures online without her consent. You are absolutely a trouble maker. Tonto should sue you for this. Oluwa holds the ace.

This photographer is too angry and I suggest he is not the professional he claims to be.

The digital pictures makes trainee to also be claiming professional. When we r learning photography then in late 90s, we started from buying of food, down to dark room where u loaded rollers in black case for bleach, Pfizer to clean d then negative, now likt that like that. Firstly, the rules must be set before any biz, now that d rules is not set, bros , tonto dikeh is free to do whatever she likes with the pictures. Secondly, it is only God that bless the work of ones hand not by tonto using ur trademark. Try to be matured n believe only on him. It s well
