For Immediate Release – The Co-Creator of the 2001 Film Shottas, Richie Effs to disclose detailed allegations of financial improprieties against the film's director Cess Silvera. During his upcoming press run, the Jamaican born gangster whose life was portrayed in the movie, will provide accounts of dishonesty; which has contributed to the delay of future projects associated with the Shottas brand. Richie alleges, after introducing Cess Silvera to the project and financing the movie with his partners Keith Deans aka Fada, Mr. Silvera has systemically attempted to confiscate the rights to the film from their company Access Pictures Moreover; Richie has taken legal action over financial improprieties during the film's distribution deal with Sony. Richie is speaking out about his experience with Cess Silvera as well his interest in finally releasing a television series inspired by the original film.

After years of alleged misappropriation of funds by Cess Silvera, Richie is planning to finally capitalize on the movie that he and his friend Keith Dean conceptualized, and that portrayed their lives as young Jamaican gangsters. Shottas quickly became a cult classic on the underground market before Sony officially released the movie in 2006. Notably, Meek Mills, TI, Young Thug and Wyclef Jean have made mention of Shottas or Richie in some form as it is still relevant today. He plans on continuing to pursue a television series as well as merchandising opportunities. According to Richie, "until this day the movie continues to make an impact in pop-culture. People want to know why we haven't put out the sequel after announcing it for years."

Cess and Richie formed Access Pictures , KeithDean aka Fada has since passed away due to medical complications. In 2011, Richie and Cess planned to put out a television series called Top Shottas based on the original film. Richie financed the teaser which led cess getting someone to finance the initial two episodes of the series. In 2016, Cess began marketing Top Shottas via social media. However, after a much-publicized conversation concerning the financial dealings of the original film, Richie finally parted ways and sought legal action against Cess. Communications firm Playbook MG is set to release Richie's press run schedule later this month. Richie is excited to tell the story behind the Shottas movie, and many will be shocked by his revelation to say the least.
