A Nigerian filmmaker, Ifeoma Chukwuogo, who is popular for the critically acclaimed short film, “Bariga Sugar,” has called out a popular actor for collecting 50% of his fee and failing to show up on set.
Refusing to reveal the actor’s name, Chukwuogo said the actor had called her two days before his shoot day to say he was in Brazil with the Ooni of Ife and wouldn’t be available.
At the time of his call, the location and his wardrobe – a total of five costumes – were already paid for and sorted out. The undisclosed actor allegedly ended the call, saying he was busy with the Ooni and would call back later.
After Chukwuogo didn’t hear from him, she eventually had to find a replacement, which cost her extra money.
The filmmaker also said that it has been 2 month, and she is yet to get a refund from the popular actor.
