THERE ARE MORE THIEVES ONLINE THESE DAYS. BEWARE!

Hello there…
So last week, something funny happened with a friends business I’ll like to share with you.

Apparently, this friend of mine is a fashion designer who’s just started out but she’s damn good. She’s been making sample design for friends and family just to test some of her new collections and get feedbacks.

Fast forward to last week, she made this very beautiful Ankara top for one of her friend, posted it up on her page and boom a bigger fashion account saw the post, picked it up, uploaded on her story and claimed it was her own design.
.
I was mad on high heaven finding out, funny thing is she wouldn’t even apologise at first, she said she used it to get traffic, rained all form of insult on the person who found out about the act, blocked the person, infact had to change her username just to escape TRUTH. Too much stress if you ask me.
.
I guess she met Jesus? and came back to her senses later in the evening when she wrote one funny apology to my designer friend. Being who she was, she accepted the apology and let it slide.
.
There are a few things we could learn from this story, let’s take some learning;
1. Some “big brands” are prey, don’t be deceived. You might have more than they will ever have. There is more to life than large social following.
.
2. Watermark your content. You don’t know which one will be largely accepted. You wouldn’t get credit for your work if somehow you can’t claim ownership.
.
3. The little you have is plenty, keep at it.
.
4. Don’t steal other people’s work. Not everyone will be as nice as my friend. It could mar your business.
.
Goodmorning.

Peace, Love and Cold Zobo.
