Avatar Pirated in Nigeria!

Avatar Pirated in Nigeria!

~ By Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima

I was busy in our office going over my review of James Cameron’s billion dollars grossing sci-fi epic Avatar when a young friend came in to ask after the Publisher of Supple magazine.
He saw my review on the homepage of Supple magazine online edition and smirked.
“Have you seen Avatar?” I asked.
‘Yeah. In fact, my family is watching it right now at home,” he replied me.
I opened my mouth in disbelief.
“The DVD?” I asked.
“Yeah,” he replied.
‘Where did you get it?” I asked.
“I bought it from a street vendor for N150 (about 99 cents),” he replied.
“Must be pirated,” I said.
‘Of course,” he concurred.
I sighed in disappointment.
Avatar is already being pirated on the streets of Lagos, Nigeria. And I bet that both the famous director and 20th Century Fox do not know this!
