It has been a week of drama, accusations and counter-accusations in Nollywood. Emeka Rollas, Kate Henshaw and the Action Guild of Nigeria (AGN) made the news.
First, Nollywood actress Hilda Dokubo came on Instagram to call out Emeka Rollas the President of AGN. This is because he had proposed to appoint Senator Elisha Abbo as a patron of the guild. In her words, Elisha Abbo is an “Abuser”
She ended her video by mentioning that he wasn’t fit to head the union. She tagged other female actresses to fight the appointment. It didn’t take long before veteran actress Kate Henshaw took to her Twitter page to speak her mind on the issue.
Kate Henshaw simply said that she resists Abbo’s appointment because she is a woman and she doesn’t want a slap from the Senator.
Senator Elisha Abbo representing Adamawa North had made the national news in June 2019. This was after a CCTV footage revealed him slapping a woman in an adult toy shop.
The Senator had slapped the lady and also called on the police officer assigned to him to arrest her. He, however, later made a public apology in an emotional video. But as it is often said, “the internet does not forget”.

While we thought the drama was over, Emeka Rollas also appointed billionaire businessman Prince Ned Nwoko as Chairman, Board of Patrons.
Ned Nwoko is the husband of Nollywood actress Regina Daniels. Their marriage made the news last year majorly because he is over 40 years older than Regina who is his sixth wife.
Social media users are of the opinion that the executives of the Guild are all out to enrich their pockets by making politicians patrons. Meanwhile, actress Monalisa Chinda the Public Relations Officer of the Guild has called for a meeting on 23rd Monday to address the grievances of members.
In your opinion, is Emeka Rollas and his executives of the Guild on the right path with their appointments? Or is this another money-making venture?
