Nollywood actress Angela Okorie has been blasted by a movie producer cum costumier identified as Omoruyi Patience Izzy for abandoning the set of the movie titled ‘Local League’ without permission.
In a message posted on social media to the actress who went AWOL, the movie producer who is a member of the Creative Designers Guild of Nigeria’s member Edo state chapter, fumed over the attitude of the thespian whom she claimed came late to the set of the movie and left without telling anybody.
Izzy wrote: “Dear Angela Okorie, I am the costumier for the movie "Local league ", the set you left without saying goodbye or finishing your remaining scenes. I want to ask you this question, who leaves a production without saying a word to the production manager? I thought by now you would be professional but you disappointed me and the entire cast and crew. Did you behave the way you did because you were in Benin? Because I know u can't try the shit you did to an Igbo director.
“You gave us two days and you ended up coming the very day we started the shoot, not like you came early oh, you came past 12noon and you counted that as a full day. I don't even want to go to how you behaved on set, that’s an ......, let me just not talk about that... The annoying part was we went to pick you and we were told you left, not even a word to the director, pm or even the producer. I thought you were a professional actress and you know the rules of the game, not knowing you are a cut and nail actor, yes I said cut and nail because you didn't even read your script before coming on set (Professionals don't do that). You looked lost on this set because the director had to tell you what each scene was about.
“Why do you actors (especially the female actors) come to Benin and misbehave? You all are always in a hurry. You know what, na Africa magic give una this level that if you don't have a face in a movie they don't buy, that's why we still come calling you guys not like you are better than my Edo actresses. This also will end soon. I just said my piece of mind and don't bother blocking me because I am not even following. You should apologise to the director, and the entire crew, especially the director because you left him cracking his head on how to block the remaining two important scenes you abandoned. God will do our own for us but we will never behave like you.”
The actress, who hails from Ebonyi State but was born in Cotonou, Benin Republic, is yet to react to the allegations leveled against her by the angry movie producer based in Benin, Edo.
Recall that Angela Okorie first came to into limelight as a model for Delta soap, a job she did for eight years before veering into the movie industry in 2011.
