Pics: Nollywood stars, VP Sambo, OBJ in Gambia for the country's 50th Independence celebrations

Nollywood stars including Patience Ozokwor, Chinedu Ikedieze, Segun Arinze, Kanayo. O. Kanayo, Chief Chika Okpala (Zebrudaya), Monalisa Chinda and Francis Duru were invited to Gambia by the country's President, Sheikh Prof Dr. Yahya A JJ Jaameeh for their 50th Independence anniversary celebrations. Former president Olusegun Obasanjo, VP Namadi Sambo and Governor Suswam of Benue were also in attendance.

According to people who were in attendance, Obasanjo sat next to Sambo at the ceremony and other than greeting him when he sat down, Obasanjo didn't say a word to VP Sambo throughout the ceremony. Nollywood stars also snubbed him as no one went to greet him. Lol. Francis Duru led the Nollywood delegation. See the photos after the cut...

He told someone close by in Hausa, "if I refused to follow the queue today, how will I tell anyone else to follow the queue tomorrow" It was indeed a rare display of discipline, courage and conviction. Airport workers nearby testified that he had always followed the queue ever since they knew him as a passenger on the International or Domestic routes #SaiBuhari

Idiot! Their stars are not as big as ours!!!! Gambia is crazy about Nollywood movies! They watch Nigerian movies like purewater! So they must have paid big money for these nollywood stars to show up! It's like having Hollywood stars at our celebrations! Educate urself! If a Gambian star came to naija, u wouldn't know who he/she was.

Anonymous said...

The Gambian people dont joke with Aki and Pawpaw and Obasanjo. They are like the most popular Nigerians there.

Nice.

That the Nollywood people refused to greet OBJ is because they are presently fighting for their stomach with their support for GEJ. Anyway OBJ did not need their respect after all he did not decide to dash them money as GEJ is doing. Our money is been dashed to this guys for free and they think we are foolish right. The fact that most of them no longer command viewers respect rather new acts have taken over is an evidence that they are the one loosing in their profession. Having said that the yoruba and hausa actors will continue to be relevant because they are yet to sell their soul for money.

With all this noise about Nollywood am shocked nobody in Universal studio know any of them by name. What type of popularity is that? If you are not known by box office please you are still a local champion and you remain so. With my in road into Hollywood am so disappointed Nollywood is just a local Nigerian hype.

If it was is true dat d so called nollywood hungry actors,did not show courtesy to Obasanjo,then it is another low for them.Imagine d nollywood guys have bn carrying themselves lately as if dey are politicians.Most of dem from eastern part of Nigerians should conduct themselves properly and not spoil d names of others.It is a shame 2 hear such thing happen.Obasanjo is quarrelsome no doubt,but even GEJ will never see him and not give me is honour as his benefactor.

Somebody is bitter! Don't let one person cloud your judgement about Gambians generally! I've had my fair share of Run ins with Nigerians but that doesn't mean that I'm going to generalize and hate Nigerians!
Be nice now!

Future Queen said...

You think its a nice thing for them not to greet their former president and an elderly man because of money or politics. I really had so much respect for you. Money is not everything.
