Nollywood filmmakers Ifeoma Chukwuogo and Isioma Osaje have come for each other over claims of mistreatment involving a popular executive producer.
#Horriblebosses: Nollywood filmmakers Isioma Osaje and Ifeoma Chukwuogo drag each other
The heated exchange comes in the wake of the trending conversation about abusive employers.
In a thread following the ongoing trend on horrible bosses, Ifeoma accused Osaje of badmouthing her for turning down a job involving her god father.
"Not sis who consistently badmouthed me to industry folks (which sha came back to me) because I simply said no to an offer from her God Father - for very valid legal reasons - also yanning “let’s talk about Nollywood horrible bosses edition”. Lmaoo let’s all fear God please."
Reacting to the tweet, Osaje called for proof and in another tweet insisted Chukwuogo tried to make her the fall guy instead of calling out the offender 'executive producer'.
"Don't talk through the corners. You've got to share proof of this bad mouthing you say I did and the mistreatment of crew you're insinuating. @FizzyThatcher"
While the identity of the 'god father producer' was not disclosed, the heated exchange appears to be thr first on what seems like a can of worms waiting to explode if a Nollywood version of the #horriblebosses is introduced.
Before the trend sparked by a TechCabal piece on Bento Africa's co-founder Ebun Okubanjo, there have been multiple conversations surrounding the alleged horrific working conditions in Nollywood.
A week ago, actor Gideon Okeke described the working culture as slave-like and beneficial solely to the producers.
