Nigerian critic Charles Novia and Yoruba movie actress Foluke Daramola in heated exchange of words while supporting political parties.
Nollywood film-maker and critic, Charles Novia is at it again.
He got caught up in a war of words with Nollywood actress Foluke Daramolo concerning the political parties they both support.Charles Novia who is a proud supporter of PDP's President Goodluck Jonathan, Foluke Daramola pitches her tent with the Buhari group of APC .
According to Vanguard, Charles stated that 99% of entertainers are in support of President Goodluck Jonathan running for a second term. “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”
The actress reacted to his statement by first slamming Charles Novia an then pledging her allegiance to APC's camp Buhari. “You are obviously wrong with that maybe that’s a figment of your imagination. You can’t make collective statement on behalf of everyone. On the contrary, many of us voluntarily support Buhari. In the time of OBJ we knew how he favoured artistes even without him giving us a dime but in GEJ’s time, all of us are being wooed by appointments, money and recognition in Aso Rock. A lot of us feel we need someone that would teach us how to fish, not one that would always give us fish. True value can never be bought with money. So, Mr Charles Novia don’t make collective statement because people like us that have values don’t take it lightly” she fires back.
Charles fired back saying “Daramola, obviously you are part of the 1%. My points on the subject suffices. Is it an old man who has 150 cows as an asset who will teach you how to fish in his old age? Sorry o. Many of us will stick to the tested fisherman from Otueke who knows how to catch fish and can teach us too” .
