Morris Chestnut

If information getting to Nigeriafilms.com from a blogger, who claimed to have met with one of Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) guests, Morris Chestnut is anything to go by, then, all might not be well.

We scooped that Morris allegedly called the hotel he was meant to stay for the awards ceremony, Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, a crap.

We also gathered that he reportedly demanded that he is moved to a better hotel immediately.

We learnt that the organisers of AMAA have since moved Morris to a new hotel, Raddison Blu Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Already, Morris has come under criticism by some angry fans for calling Eko Hotel a crap.

They believe that as a 'D-list' American actor, he should not have downgraded one of the best hotels in Lagos.

Morris Chestnut and Rockmond Dunbar are both Hollywood actors invited to AMA Awards holding this Sunday.

For you info; Morris Chestnut is not; I repeat is not a 'D' list actor! As a matter of fact; I don't see any of the African actors and actresses standing up against him! They first need to have a good command of the Queen's English, and secondly, they need to stop being so Americanized, and stick to their African Roots. I've never seen so many tacky wardrobes, make-up and hair styles. PLEASEEEEEE don't do it!!! If he 'D' List, then what category would you class your thespians?

I agree with you Shameca what i notice about Nigerians is that they can't stand constructive criticism and they always talk bad about their own Nigerian celebs. Also , some of them are so quick to swear and talk nasty stuff about people's parents which is so not cool it is so wrong to see them talking trash back and forth with each other on the internet. I remember a Nigerian friend of mine here in America asked me to watch a Nigerian movie with her which i did and decided to join the site Naijapals to be precise and remember making a comment on an article about my tattoo boy what what was i thinking? this boy came from nowhere say because my mother is useless that's why she let me get a tattoo i was shock and told him it's non of his business if i have a tattoo and besides my husband is cool with it. Omg at that moment was like i invited the whole site to my comment they started call me a p********e some said my husband was s****d some where saying my father is a useless man i was like what? and i called my friend and asked her if that's how SOME Nigerians behave? she was so embarrassed and asked me to report to the admin but nothing was done about it so i decided to delete my account. I know some of them are going to reply to my comment but i won't be surprise anyway.

Absolutely agreed with you

MEE absolutely agreed with your submission, dude. Trust MEE, the truth is many people that are showing thier aggressions on this dude's opinion of the hotel have indeed never leave the shore of Nigeria to other parts of the World. To them Eko Hotel is thier ultimate edivice of pride, and of course thier national pride. So how would they not get angry and demonstrate thier aggressions when somebody is insulting thier proud landmark? But tell you what, a farm owner that has not being to other person's farm will boast of his farm as the greatest. If some of them have been opportuned to see hundreds of beautiful and paradiselike hotels located in places like New York City, Las Vegas, Califonia, Dallas, Florida, Houston, Mary Land, New Jersay and many USA towns and cities where this dude and his contemporaries wine and dine in thier everyday lives, maybe those that are getting mad at his comment would have kept thier lousy mouths shut. Rather the management of Eko Hotel should consider his concern areas of complain and improve on them so that the next Hollywood star guests to the hotel will not call it "BullSheet". Trust MEE, crap is indeed a refined word.

See this failed, nobody care about actor. Who does he think he is. If it was Denzel, then person go hear word not this one that has been in a good movie for ages. Don't blame him sha. If a nigerian A list actor does this, they would ignore him. Don't see any difference between him and ramsey in rank.

I think y'all should stop hating on Morris. We all have the right to express our feelings about things, besides, he might not have said it the way it's been presented. After all, we are not even sure he said it cos he is not here to defend himself. Even if he did, he had the right to freedom of speech and could say whatever he likes. He is a great A- list African American actor, highly respected for what he does cos he does it right. Please, y'all should stop assassinating Genny's character and start appreciating her for who she is. No matter what you say, there are tones of people who will always love her, like me.

Please lets find out what exactly was his reason for saying Eko was crap and address it.He would never have said that just to spite AMAA or Eko Hotel Mgt.By the way has any one noticed the lack of privacy at Eko hotels.Any1 could literariyl work in and out of there

analysts studying the plan. fadreel proposal to increase the size limit on loans eligible for purchase by mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has unsettled traders in the $4.5 trillion market for bonds backed by the conforming mortgages.Increasing the eligible loans to $729,750 from $417,000 would change the characteristics of mortgage-backed securities, leading traders to exact a premium for increased interest-rate risk.Borrowers with large, jumbo loans are more likely to refinance since their savings are greater for each incremental drop in rates than for a smaller loan. The loans will taint the bonds since traders don't initially know the make-up of the securities known as agency MBS.Higher mortgage rates would make it even harder to unload already high housing inventories and existing homes on the market, delaying any housing recovery and potentially extending the U.S. economic slowdown.Potential damage to the to-be-delivered (TBA) market the most actively traded agency mortgage market where investors can buy bonds before they are actually created prompted Wall Street dealers to call a special meeting with the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association at 3:30 p.m. Friday, market sources said. A SIFMA spokeswoman would only say the group is in ongoing discussions with its members. The amount of money that investors are willing to pay for agency mortgages (bonds) could be lower if these loans are TBA deliverable and so mortgage spreads could widen, said Ajay Rajadhyaksha, co-head of U.S. fixed income strategy at Barclays Capital in New York, who will listen to the SIFMA meeting by phone.Mortgage rates would rise for the vast majority of agency-eligible borrowers, he said. MBS paying low interest rates have been hurt in recent days amid expectations the addition of many jumbo loans will boost supply in those coupons, analysts said. As much as $500 billion in jumbo loans could qualify, according to Barclays research. The street is on high alert, one mortgage trader at a New York-based primary dealer said in an e-mail. When you start throwing a lot of jumbos into a pool you spoil the fungibility of the collateral, said Linda Lowell, a mortgage market veteran and principal of Offstreet Research LLC. That has made the market as liquid as it is. Home owners have benefited from lower mortgage rates.
