In the suit his lawyer said,

“it will interest you to know that the phrase ‘something hooge’, which was popularised by our client, has been trademarked and legally reserved as his intellectual property by FMITI… on the 26th of November 2021 with the file number: NG/TM/O/2021/48316.”

After the news broke yesterday, Nigerian on social media have been going back and forth over the suit. Some are in support of the suit while some are against it.
