BBNaija Season 6: I Want to see Whitemoney, Others in Nollywood -‘Cutekimani’ Adekeye

Media personality Esther Adekeye (Cutekimani) has expressed her wish to see Whitemoney, Pere, and other BBNaija season 6 stars exploring Nollywood.

She made this known following a statement by veteran actor Emeka Rollas, who posted on his social media pages that the Nigerian filmmaking industry had become a dumping site for BBNaija stars.

Addressing the matter while in talks with journalists, Adekeye said there’s nothing wrong in seeing BBNaija stars in films, as she maintained that Nollywood would soon welcome new talents as soon as the ongoing ‘Shine Ya Eye’ show ends.

“Already, I’m rooting to seeing Whitemoney, Pere, Angel, Liquorose, JMK, amongst others featuring in Nollywood films,” she stated as she queried that “if their faces will sell the films they are featured in, then why can’t they be welcomed?”

“Bisola Aiyeola is a very talented actor, likewise Diane Russet, Erica, Tobi Bakre, JMK, Liquorose, Whitemoney, Pere, and even Tega. So, should we now say that because they are a product of a particular platform, we should not let them thrive in their chosen fields? Most of them even went into the house because they wanted an opportunity to show the world that they are good actors, and we can’t take that away from them. We can’t say because they are products of BBNaija, they shouldn’t be welcomed into the industry. No!” Adekeye added.

The revered public relations consultant, however, advised Nollywood stakeholders to seek collaboration with BBNaija stars instead of competing against them.

“BBNaija stars have leverages that can be taken advantage of, likewise Nollywood stakeholders. If they see the industry as a competition ground, one person could suffer, which to me, is unhealthy for the Industry,” she advised.

Police Explain Reason For Tonto Dikeh’s ex-lover, Prince Kpokpogiri’s Arrest

Police Explain Reason For Tonto Dikeh’s ex-lover, Prince Kpokpogiri's Arrest

The police have explained that one Prince Kpokpogri, the estranged lover of Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, was arrested for attempting to cause a breach of the peace at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Maitama, Abuja, on Monday, October 18, 2021.

The suspect was said to have visited the luxury hotel with two police guards in a bid to retrieve a Lexus SUV parked by Dikeh, who lodged there.

He allegedly blocked the vehicle with his car and when cautioned, his police escort reportedly threatened to shoot a female worker of the hotel.

The hotel management subsequently invited the police who whisked all the parties to the Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.

Confirming this development, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, FCIID, Joseph Egbunike, said he directed a Commissioner of Police to arrest Kpokpogri following reports of a threatening situation at the hotel.

According to him, the police escorts were being detained for failing to bring the situation at the hotel under control, adding that Kpokpogri has been released on bail.

Dikeh and her erstwhile lover have been trending in the news lately following their messy break-up with the latter accusing the actress of promiscuity while she described him as a blackmailer.

The DIG dismissed reports that he arrested Kpokpogri to please Tonto Dikeh.

He stated, “I only met the suspect and complainant for the first time yesterday (Monday); I don’t know where they came from. It has to do with the criminal issue that happened at Transcorp Hilton Hotel. We went there to do a threat analysis that somebody was trying to cause a situation there.

“So, I sent my commissioner to go and bring them only to be surprised to see the two parties. We interviewed them and detained my policemen who were there and could not contain the situation. They are in the cell now. I know by today, everybody must have calmed down and reflected on what they did and what they did not do.”

Egbunike added, “The suspect has been released on bail, he is entitled to bail. Besides, the matter we are treating is the disturbance of public space, not the other one of their relationship which another commissioner is treating. All those things would be resolved by the commissioner handling the matter.

“When a matter is subsisting at the police station, there is no need of taking matters into your hands. If the matter has been concluded and you are not satisfied, you make your case. But when you go to a public space and there’s panic, we’ll have no choice but to step in.”
