Veteran Nollywood actress, Hilda Dokubo has reacted to the ransom demand, over the kidnap of her colleagues, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel.
The actress took to social media to vent about the ridiculous amount, #72 million that was demanded for their release, adding that kidnappers do think that things are as posed in movies.
In her words;
And they (kidnappers) think that as it is in the movies that is how it is in real life. What a life! Where will we get one hundred thousand USdollars from? God save all of us from this pain and give us your grace for this period,” the actress bewailed.
One hundred thousand USDollars ransom demand for 2 decent hardworking Nigerians whose only offence is that they were returning from work!
Nollywood is about moving from one level of begging for alms to save an ill or dying colleague to now facing the worse of fears over two of their colleagues facing God knows what in the hands of kidnappers!
Where will we turn if not the public using our social media platforms! Well… Finally the kidnappers have made their demands. They want money! 100M USdollars! From where.
Unfortunately they misjudged the financial status of the actors they kidnapped! And think that as it is in the movies that is how it is in real life. What a life! Where will we get one hundred thousand USdollars from? God save all of us from this pain and give us your grace for this period.
I know some actors paint the wrong picture on social media all the time but it is only in line with the “Show” part of SHOWbiz. Hopefully, you’ll understand what I mean.
I am pained because know this two personally, have worked with them, and know the truth of how it is with them.
Just been asking myself one question all day, How much does an average actor make in Nigeria?
The actress added that all that’s seen displayed on social media by actors, is barely the Show askpext of SHowbiz.
