Mechanical Engineer-turned Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike
has pointed accusing fingers at some Nollywood bigwigs
for sleeping with actresses in exchange of roles.
The Nollywood actor, who had marital challenges earlier this
year has made it known in a recent interview how sad he is
with the modus operandi of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria. He
made it known that the Ibinabo Fiberesima-led tenure which
is still ongoing can only be compared to the biblical Sodom
and Gomorrah, where producers sleep with actresses to give
them role while they practice homosexuality with the males.
PulseNG reports that while addressing newsmen at the 2nd
edition of the City People’s Political Award held recently in
Lagos, the Imo State born actor, revealed that the Nollywood
is full of decays which must not be transferred to the next set
of fresh generation that will opt in their career.
The actor who is seen as a controversial one because of his
straightforward reactions on issues in the movie industry in
Nigeria has been involved in a running battle with the body
since he declared his intention to lead the guild, and believes
he is the only one who can rescue what he calls a dying
Emeka went on to mention names of people who he feels are
‘ruining’ the tune of events in the Nigeria movie industry. He
was quoted saying:
”There are five people who have taken the laws of
Nigerian movie industry into their hands.
They are Emma Ogugua, Murphy Stephen, Sunny McDon,
Okey Bakassi and Ifeanyi Dikeh. These five people
registered Actors Guild of Nigeria as their personal
business. No other individual can come in.
My first concern is to clean up Nollywood, clean up AGN.
Every Nigerian youth want to act movies now, what future
are we leaving for them?
Where are they going to write their names?
The two bedroom in Surulere where they would ask you to
come and grace their beds before they give you roles?
Where they would make you join a g*y group or l*****n
group before they talk to you?
Nollywood has gotten so bad that you must either strip and
grace their beds or join the g*y or l*****n group to
The people at the helm of affairs are the ones killing
Some of us the well-known actors don’t even know their
I dare say it again, they don’t. Nobody can come out to
We built this industry with pain.
Those who are at the helm of affairs now, people don’t
even know them in the movies.
They just came in and messed everything up.
Ibinabo has been acting as the president of AGN for years
now, but with her case as an ex-convict, do you have any
moral justification to recognize her as the president? The
court case is still on and the war continues.
That wasn’t the industry I founded. My daughter will not
to go into that industry tomorrow and they would say she
must sleep with one of them to get a role.
Neither would my son be a part of Nollywood that is full
