In 2015, British National Party leader Nick Griffin infringed copyright using, without consent, one of Tamagni's images of the Piccadilly Group for the purposes of nationalist propaganda. Sharing on Twitter the photograph of the Congolese dandies posing in kilts to demand "Keep Scotland Scottish", Griffin faced backlash from Twitter users and from Tamagni himself, who sought legal action through a UK based lawyer. Tamagni reported: "I am really disgusted that my picture has been used for racist propaganda. I want to defend my work and the values behind it. I am pleased that people were clever enough to ensure that it had the contrary effect to the one Nick Griffin intended, but it remains a fact that my picture has been used for something very offensive."
The event was covered by Adam Lusher for The Independent in May 2015.
