On January 28, 2016 Nollywood actress Chioma Akpotha posted a tweet that seemed to many that she was taking a shot at fellow actresses Uche Jumbo, Omoni Oboli, Blessing Egbe, and Ufuoma McDermott.

The actresses felt like Chioma Akpotha was taking a shot at them and aptly responded. The next day the actress clarified her tweet. She explained that she was not throwing a sub or dissing any actress in the picture.

The actresses accepted this and they all kissed and made up.

Now get this. The initial tweet and the drama surrounding it was publicity stunt. How do we know this?

On February 2, (four days after the Twitter drama) Omoni Oboli released the poster of her next movie ‘Wives on Strike’.

Check this out the movie features Omoni Oboli, Uche Jombo, Chioma Akpotha, and Ufuoma McDermott. Only actress Blessing Egbe is not involved in the movie.

Is it a coincidence that these movie co-stars would get into a Twitter spat a few days before the official poster of their movie was going to come out?

Your guess is as good as ours.

‘Wives On Strike’ comes out on April 8, 2016.
