Nollywood actress and producer, Kemi Afolabi was recently on a movie set in Ikorodu when thugs (popularly known as omo onile) disrupted the set and one of them allegedly laid hands on her, and punched her in the stomach causing her to bleed because he and his accomplices were not paid the money they requested for.
Actors and actresses are coming together to raise their voices about the situation on social media and to demand better security whenever they are on set.
Watch the video following the assault below.
Wow. This video is pretty disturbing. Nollywood actress and producer Kemi Afolabi was on set shooting a new movie in Ikorodu when some area boys came to disrupt the set and one of them allegedly laid his hands on her. He was then held by people who refused to let him go because of his actions. So sad to see that actresses/producers/directors are not safe when they are on set because of situations like this. A similar scenario played out a few weeks ago when @omonioboli was also on set | From @ibrahim_chatta: “Should We wait till one of Us is killed and Fans starts sending Their condolences? d thug in this video punched @kemiafolabi in d belly and She started to bleed, because he and his accomplices asked for d money they didn’t work for. These menaces against Movie Makers has to stop! I am hereby asking The Youth of This Industry to come together and make Ourselves “One for All and All for One. This could be any One of Us! @kunleafod @yomifabiyi @muyiwaademolaauthentic @odunomoadekola @adedimejilateef @iyaboojofespris @mercyaigbegentry @damolaolatunji @adeniyijohnson @dayoamusa_myselfyourself @omonioboli @jayeola_monje @iteledicon @femiadebayosalami @lala_dapo”
