Nollywood actor, Tunji Aderibigbe, known for his exploits in Grey Focus, Render Unto Ceasar and most recently, Lunch Time Heroes, and who also came 4th in reality show The Spirited Actor has cried out in a bid to “raise a red flag” about Samad Davis, the producer of the ill-fated 2012 reality show and COO of Magna World Partners Inc.
Reports have been circulating recently about a reality show, Top Actor, billed to hit Lagos, Nigeria pretty soon and Aderibigbe has implored people not to “honour this farce” because, according to him, it is merely an “attempt to swindle honest living people.”
Aderibigbe claimed in his widely-circulated social media message that Samad is the one behind the Top Actor and that going by his past experience, the producer is not to be trusted.
Hi guys! This is Tunji Aderibigbe. I’m here to alert you all of the intended fraud about to be brought to our shores by a certain individual named Samad Davis. I’m sure you all remember “The Spirited Actor”, an acting competition which I was a part of as a contestant. Well word has just gotten to me that the above named individual is at it again with the title “Top Actor”. Samad Davis is a fraud! He hides behind the mask of bringing great opportunities to actors just to be able to dupe potential sponsors and ruin peoples lives to enrich himself. I was once a victim of this. He’s a greedy, wicked and calous individual. Even his partners have all denounced him and withdrawing from any dealings whatsoever with him.And I have solid and physical proof. I’m here to raise a Red Flag on any production titled Top Actor for it has been brought to my notice that there’s a broadcast going around of it coming to Nigeria. And the auditions being held at Protea Maryland. I implore every single actor (Male/Female) not to honour this farse and attempt to swindle honest living people. Samad has nothing to offer anyone. And my fellow colleagues if you know me well. You know I don’t joke around when it comes to issues concerning my craft and colleagues and friends. So please everyone let’s join together to rid our talents, sponsors and friends of this deceitful person in the name of SAMAD DAVIS. I am willing to provide anyone, company, government, production outfit with details of this mans illegal dealings.
My name is Tunji Aderibigbe.
