Shey you people remember some weeks ago when Aunty Chioma Akpotha, Aunty Ufuoma McDermott, Aunty Omoni Oboli, Aunty Uche Jombo and Aunty Blessing Egbe started warring on Twitter?
Chioma Akpotha whose last big screen effort was in (fill in the gap) was purposely thrown under the bus to headline this unbelievable drama when she tweeted; “Sometimes Sisters aren’t really sisters” and threw in some hashtags to garnish the whole statement; #2016mindingmyownbusiness #stayinginmylane #movingon.
And if they were trying to get Nollywood fans’ attention, they did get it!
Everyone started wondering what was going on with Chioma who normally would not behave badly (based on her goody two shoes roles in Nollywood, people believe Chioma Akpotha is always good) and panicked that their favorite Nollywood actresses were going to war when Ufuoma, Omoni and Uche Jombo responded to her harshly.
Before we knew it men, their Twitter war was joining the long list of January fights which Olamide and Don Jazzy premiered on the 1st of January.
However, when Chioma Akpotha woke up the next morning to “clarify” her tweets everyone was like “oh we said it she did not mean it that way” “Oya finish una fight”
But do these people think we are buying that publicity stunt?
I mean not too long after, a movie poster featuring all the stars of the Twitter war emerged and it is titled “Wives On Strike”.
If that does not say anything, what will?
Beht while I am not even going to rain on their parade and say the movie will not sell with that PR stunt, question is how many more cinema tickets would they possibly sell with it? Would people even care to extra about the movie?
I don’t think so.
These Actresses’ fanbase put together can not make that happen.
Maybe they should try another style next time sha.
Meanwhile, Omoni Oboli, you sold plenty with your last movie, whish kain style be dis one na?
