Nollywood film-maker and critic, Charles Novia and Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola, hardly have anything in common and, as such, rarely have their paths crossing. But the prevailing political atmosphere in the country engendered by support for either President Goodluck Jonathan or General Muhammadu Buhari may have turned the duo into gladiators set for each other’s jugular on the political arena.
While Charles is a die-hard supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan, Foluke Daramola pitches her tent with the Buhari group. Trouble started between them when Charles stated on the Naijahottest social platform that 99% of entertainers are in support of President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term bid. In reaction to the statement, Foluke said it could not be unless Charles was making up figure in mere fantasy.
When artistes collectively endorse a person or join hands in the majority to support a cause, the Heavens listen and join. Those within the fold who leave the line make their choices and Freudian slips. They become tragic heroes or comic villains. I respect the choices the 1% on the other side of the divide have made but when it comes to GEJ, the entertainment sector is fully in the majority in support of him” stated Charles Novia.
