Ntando Duma going to court

Ntando Duma is not only a great actress and TV presenter, but also a marketing genius. There's also a brand endorsement under her belt and a deal with the Cute Kids Baby Nappies brand for her daughter Sbakhle. However, it seems she messed up badly this time because she was sued for a business decision. According to 

 City Press, the actress was sued for copyright infringement. This happened after she used one brand's photos for another brand's campaign, apparently in violation of her contract with them. According to a 

 report, the famous photography agency Pixel Kollective has sued her for R200,000. She allegedly used the photos they took in a social media campaign for snack food company Simba. As Simba's brand ambassador, she shared a photo of herself with a snack to promote the brand. 

 However, she used photos from Pixel Collective and did not mention the company in the post. So she made three mistakes. Using one brand's product to promote another, not giving credit to the first product, and not getting the rights to the image through the appropriate channels if you really intend to use it that way. Not helpful for Pixel Collective. 

: Additional information on the progress of the case is not yet available and will provide updates as they become available. 

 It all started in a long social media battle between the rapper and the Instagram page. The page claimed he had rented a controversial McLaren GT to him. For some time there were rumors that the car was rented, not bought. And when he denied the rumors, a page appeared asking him to return the car. 

 But the whole ordeal was very questionable, especially since Page was not even respected, had few followers, and lasted about a week before making a bold claim. We tend to think our suspicions were right because everyone suspected that everything was rigged for influence, and no intimidating lawsuits have been going on since. 

 Celebrities, as public figures, must refrain from speaking, acting, or posting in public places so that they do not grope for their bags by doing things that are against the law or doing something wrong. However, other celebrities have also been sued, and this is not the end of Ntan Do Douma's brand partnership, which could be resolved easily without going too far.
