A source close to the actress confided in that Biodun had to listen to the other marketers because they promised that the arrested marketer will get the N1.4 million he owes her available soon.

"I believe the man will not want to go through that kind of embarrassment again in his life, he is going to pay the money soon to Biodun," the close source to the actress, who pleaded anonymity, told

she was too old for the role and it was irritating , Jide 's daughter would have been the best to use -Abimbola kosoko
very fishy

I still want the governement to investigate and probe the marketers who are claiming to make millions of dollars from Nollywood. Because I suspect that they are using Nollywood as a cover up for the real deals behind the cameras. Because, if they are really making money from their movies, the actors, actresses, producers and directors should be very comfortable.

The artistes I see at the National Theatre and their joints in Surulere look like people who need help.

That is the most civilized way of dealing with any party in a contract that breach the content of the contract. He would never take her for granted any more. This is a good development instead of using fetish means.
