Early this week, reports emerged that TV presenter Sheila Gashumba was dragging hosts of Sunday Funday at La Paroni’s to court over “illegal” usage of her images.
Sheila Gashumba accused Eventix and Muchachos— the event’s marketers and patrons—of using her pictures on social media without her consent.
As the case grew deeper, information emerged that indeed the pencil-thin star had involved authorities to pursue the case.
Our sources further intimated that a raid was done on the recently held edition of the event in search of the accused.
This was after alleged efforts from Sheila to have her images pulled down.
On Tuesday this week, Muchachos and Eventix, through their counsel Claire Amanya of CR Amanya Advocates and solicitors reported to police to record statements and seek clarity on the matter.
Shortly after the said image was published on Sunday, Sheila Gashumba, like many previous attendees seemed not bothered about the usage of her images.
In fact, she quoted the photo saying, “Always a lit time.”
That didn’t sound like a bothered personality.
Shortly after, however, the light-skinned NTV presenter established that in the photo there was Vivian, aka Deejay Vee, one of the event hosts and her longtime Nemesis.
The two do not see eye to eye.
Sources claim that their beef emanates from their relationship (s) with singer Fik Fameica.
On spotting he “co-wife” Sheila demanded to have the photo erased from all social media channels or she would take legal action.
Reluctant to bend for the directive, Muchachos and eventix did not do as asked.
Indeed, while texting a one Paul of La Paroni’s, Sheila singled out Vivian to make her case.
“I don’t like it when my photos are posted without my permission.I have not give [sic] permission to Vivian,” she said in the conversation.
“Biju (One of Muchachos Directors) or the bar to use me for promoting the business,” she added.
