Hospitalized Veteran Actor, Obi Madubogwu Speaks Out How Many Nollywood Stars Deserted Him In Time Of Need

Published

on

Weeks ago there were progress reports on veteran actor turned producer, Obi Madubogwu, who was hospitalized and is recuperating from a near-fatal bout with diabetic sore.

Recently the actor celebrated his birthday and some Nollywood stars like Don Pedro Aganbi (Lagos AGN Chairman), Prince Ifeanyi Dike, Jude Orhorha, Ifeanyi Ikpoenyi, Dozie Eboh, Stanley Okoronkwo, Andy Chukwu and more went to visit him at the Federal Medical Centre in Ebute Metta, Lagos.

During the visit, Obi Madubogwu talked about his disappointment with a number of Nigerian stars that have forgotten him and are not picking his calls even though he had a hand in shaping their movie careers.

He said:

“I am truly thankful for the people who have been of help to me. But I am surprised at the behaviour of some of the stars whom I helped shape their film careers. Some have received cumulative acting fees from me running into tens of millions of Naira. I remember one who works with Governor Okorocha. I was the one who gave her the first movie role. I called her on the phone once and after that she refused to pick my call subsequently. Many Nollywood stars disappointed me at the point of need, avoiding my phone calls; but God has been great, giving me support from unfamiliar places”.
