Nollywood actress, Lala Akindoju has bashed the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) over their visit to her colleague, Regina Daniels, who recently gave birth to her first child.
The visit was led by the guild’s President, Emeka Rollas, who presented gifts to the new mum in her Abuja residence in the presence of her billionaire husband, Prince Ned Nwoko. Emeka Rollas also tagged the newborn “Nollywood baby of the year”
“This is our baby, Nollywood baby of the year, we are here to rejoice with your family”, Emeka Rollas said.
However, actress Lala took to Twitter to condemn the act, saying it’s shameful because they should use the same energy to do things to move the movie industry forward.
She went further to say that they shouldn’t have filmed and posted in these times where the actors’ guild should show leadership on pressing issues like navigating the industry with COVID-19.
Her tweet reads; “This is actually shameful. In these times where the actor’s guild should show leadership on pressing issues like navigating the industry with COVID-19, like creating structures to stop sexual harassment in the industry. This is their priority. Even if you visit your member must you film and post? The videos we need to see about future and safety of practitioners. Yet, they abuse us and insist that we join… Sigh! It is shameful because they should use the same energy to do the things that actually move the industry forward.”
