Something that looks like cold war is brewing within Nollywood caucus unless something is urgently done, the Actors Guild of Nigeria’s president, Ibinabo Fiberesima and veteran actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo may be reaching each other jugular soon over later’s visit to Aso Rock recently.
KOK as Kanayo is fondly called recently paid a courtesy visit with some group of actors and actresses to Aso Rock, Abuja without the authority of the association and this has become a subject of top discussion among key players in Nollywood.
Although the group, known as the G-20, was said to have visited Aso Rock to condole with President Goodluck Jonathan over the death of his younger brother, many tongues have started wagging over the real purpose of the visit. Some elements argued that the visit is not on the interest of the industry but to enrich the purse of some certain people in the industry.
When Ibinabo was informed about it, she reacted thus, “I say unequivocally that anyone has the right to visit or commiserate with the President. But when it is conducted under the aegis of Nollywood, then eyebrows will be raised and questions will be asked. The days of self-centeredness are over.”
She further said that ever since the visit, Nollywood had been awash with unbridled comments. “Some people are asking what the G20 stands for. What are its objectives? What is its relevance in Nollywood? Is it about making money for itself in the Presidency? Is it about lobbying for appointment? What is the motive of G20?
“If they claim to have represented Nollywood at the Presidential Villa, on whose authority did they do that? We have elected representatives in all guilds and associations in Nollywood. And I am certain none of them authorised the visit. I am looking forward to seeing G20 hire a bus and visit the families of Pete Eneh and Enebeli Elebuwa or even attend their funerals,” Ibinabo disclosed.
However, a member of the G-20 has defended their action by saying there was nothing illegal or wrong in their visit to Aso Rock. “When has it become a crime for some professionals within a group to pay condolence visits? I see nothing bad or sinful in it because it was an open visit,” he said.
