Shanty Town: Ini Edo, Chinenye Nworah take to court over ownership

Conversations about a potential sequel to Netflix’s popular series Shanty Town have hit a roadblock as co-producers Ini Edo and Chinenye Nworah are reportedly embroiled in a legal dispute over ownership of the show.

Ini Edo‘s lawyers have sent a cease-and-desist letter to Netflix, asserting the actress’s claim of co-ownership and rights to the production, which has led to a pause in discussions about the sequel.
