“Be Humble” – Filmmaker Don Pedro Obaseki Tells Rita Dominic In Open Letter

Yesterday, award-winning actress Rita Dominic took a swipe at Nollywood producers on Instagram, saying that not all Nollywood movies should not go to the cinema.

According to her, some producers should make their movies for the DVDs and places like Iroko Tv and Ibaka TV.

This statement did not sit well with some producers and award-winning filmmaker Don Pedro-Obaseki has taken Instagram to write an open letter to Rita Dominic reminding her of her past when she used to sweat in 2003 roaming from one set to the other.

Obaseki further warns Rita not to be like the proverbial bird Chichidodo in Ayi kwe Armah’s novel that hated shit but feeds only on the maggots from shit.

See his letter below

My dear star, sister & colleague’, Rita Nwaturocha (aka Rita Dominic & once upon a time, Rita Lamb), I’ve had the inglorious privilege of reading about your “Table Shakings” and the reactions they’ve elicited.

Ma, humility is a virtue, and caution ain’t cowardice! I remember a few times around 2003-2006 when you used to “sweat” at Chico’s in Bank Olemoh, roaming from one set to the other, while recording TWO or THREE movies at the same Time!

Don’t be like Chichidodo, the proverbial Ghanaian bird in Ayi kwe Armah’s novel. Chichidodo was the bird that hated shit, but feeds only on the maggots from Shit.

He has since taken down the post.
