ON Friday, September 10, 2010 something spectacular happened. A crowd of people gathered in front of Orange Seed office [Chike Bryan and Ifeanyi Ikpoenyi’s office] in Kilo bus stop and watched as producer Dickson Iroegbu and Emeka Enyiocha shouted at the top of their voices at each other. Hear the olofofo who witnessed it all, “It turned out the fight was about the N300,000 that Mr. President allegedly gave to some Nollywood actors including Emeka.
Dickson was shouting and saying, ‘All of you that went and cheapened yourselves for N300,000 are a disgrace to Nollywood and that includes you Emeka, In response, Emeka said he would slap Dickson and Dickson dared him to try it. It was very messy with people like Chike Bryan trying to separate the fight which was in the full glare of passersby. Emeka was shouting at the top of his voice that he had no regrets for collecting the N300,000. And that more was coming.
Dickson told him to go ahead since he was no more relevant as an actor in Nollywood.” …”Stella, it was a very messy exchange of words, some people gathered and were separating the fight. Emeka eventually entered his vehicle and drove off while Dickson stayed behind and heatedly said, “Look at Emeka Enyiocha, a third rate bad actor talking about integrity which he does not have.
He will soon be recruited as a thug”…Nollywood tales abound. Please, I call on the AGN president to wade into this matter before real blows are exchanged! Our forefathers say, “to be forewarned na message until the punch re-arrange somebody nose.”
