Nigerian actress Lala Akindoju has slammed the Actors Guild of Nigeria for visiting her colleague Regina Daniels who welcomed her first child with billionaire husband Ned Nwoko in the past week.
Led by the association’s President, Emeka Rollas, the Guild is shown presenting assorted items to the couple in a video that has been posted online.
Akindoju, however, described footage of the presentation as “shameful” in a series of condemnation on Twitter.
She believes the presentation was a misplaced move in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has threatened the movie industry.
“This is actually shameful. In these times where the actor’s guild should show leadership on pressing issues like navigating the industry with COVID-19, like creating structures to stop sexual harassment in the industry,” Akindoju wrote on Twitter.
“This is their priority. Even if you visit your member must you film and post? The videos we need to see about future and safety of practitioners. Yet, they abuse us and insist that we join. Sigh!
She went on to charge the leadership of the Guild to channel the same energy into navigating the movie industry forward.
“It is shameful because they should use the same energy to do the things that actually move the industry forward.”
