Actress, Kemi Afolabi and movie director, Ijaduade Azeez were harassed by area boys demanding for a settlement at their movie location in Ikorodu, Lagos. Azeez shared photos of the injuries he sustained, he posted a video of Kemi Afolabi physically holding one of the thugs down, via his Instagram page.
His caption read:
“This crazy area boys won’t kill us the actors one day…this is happening right now on our movie set at Ikorodu. Please this has to stop help us oooo.#saynotoactorsabuse. They injured me the director, Kemi Afolabi, the producer, camera man and some of the crew…please we need Nigerians to stand up for us.”
Update- Kemi has reportedly lost her pregnancy after the altercation with the area boys, so sad. She was reported to have been bleeding profusely and one of the thugs who repeatedly hit her tummy, is in Police detention. She is in a hospital in VI where she is recuperating.
