Nollywood Actress Ini Edo reportedly Shuts Down her Lounge after Almost Two Years



Nollywood actress Ini Edo has reportedly closed down her Lounge, Mimz Bar & Lounge in Lekki, Lagos, after almost two years in business.

According to LIB‘s new series “Rumour Has It“, the lounge which was launched in September 2015 recently closed shop due to poor management.

However, the actress, who was recently appointed the Special Adviser to the Akwa Ibom State Governor on Tourism, is yet to confirm the story.

    RuMour Has It is a STOLEN concept from Stella Dimoko Korkus – if the law actually worked in Nigeria, I think Stella might actually win this case.

      Yes, she did steal the name but then is the name registered to SDK? If not, SDK has no case here.

      I guess SDK should also sue Adele for releasing “Rumour Has It” song without paying royalties to SDK. abi?

      FYI, Rumor Has It was a daily game show that aired on the cable station VH1 in the US from June 7 to October 28, 1993. Brian O’Connor was the host and John Ten Eyck announced. Please do your research before making malicious claims. Your SDK is not the originator of “Rumour Has It”!! Moreover, the expression “Rumour Has It” is not a registered trademark in Nigeria and is therefore, available to the general public for use.

      @anonymous with the wrong spelling, that’s a very weak argument. Both LIB and Stella are bloggers in the same industry and same target population. So the examples you mentioned don’t count on that basis.

      If your mom opens a restaurant called mama put and another woman ( who is a known competitor in the same market) opens a restaurant and calls it’s mama put then that’s unethical and so she might have a case on those grounds but I stand to be corrected because I’m not a lawyer and it’s probably too petty to make an issue.

      But don’t defend something that you won’t be happy with if it was you in those shoes.

      , @Passerby You can choose to dwell on simple typos or focus on the main issue. Your choice. I will forgive your naive comparison because you admitted you are not a lawyer. There are no sentiments in business. If you are dumb enough to run a business without seeking adequate legal protection by registering your trade name, then you have voluntarily assumed the risk of losing that name to someone else. There are lots of websites that have cloned different lindaikeji websites. You think Linda has any actionable right against them since she failed to trademark her name after she started trading with it?? Please just go and sit down.

      You forgot to add “shallow minded local set of people ” to the list of SDK readers btw Linda Ikeji’s audience is far from immature.. It’s more of the general public

      Ma fren. Gerrarahere!! You can’t even spell your name correctly. It’s NOT spelt as pronounced. It’s DUMB. Not DUM.

    @passerby, it doesn’t matter that both Linda and SDK are in the same business. Without a trademark, SDK has no exclusive right to the usage of “rumour has it” and this has nothing to do with ethics.
