* MoHits part of the deal is up to the sum of $3, 000, 000 (three million dollars) which they have provided
While fielding questions from all present, Mr Endowed D’Banj pledged not to relent in his support of the fight against piracy but went on to reiterate that he does not believe there is piracy as in his words “In Nigeria there is no piracy cos it’s the availability of the original that makes piracy thrive so without the original no piracy (laughs)”.
