Popular comedian/actor Okey Bakassi in a recent chat with Hip TV asked embattled actor Emeka Ike to stop causing crisis in the umbrella body of actors The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
Okey who was a guest on ‘Trending’ was asked to comment on the crisis currently rocking the AGN and he answered saying even though Emeka Ike is his brother because they come from the same state, he has to tell him the truth.
“Its a shame Emeka Ike is the one trying to bring crisis into the AGN. This is a man who should be focusing on his marriage and family life. Every time he is in the news, it’s for something negative. it is either he is fighting his wife, landlord or even Pastor Chris Okotie. He is just trying to be the president of a body he did not help establish. The elders of our industry have all reached out to him to drop his ‘battle’ but he still insists on going on with it.” He said.
At this point, host of the show Nancy Isime advised Emeka to heed the call of his colleagues and elders of the guild and allow peace to reign. But Okey was not done.
He continued: “There are times where one has to look at himself in the mirror and ask what he or she is doing. Take me for example. At my age when i thought it was time for me to get involved in politics, I went down to my village to run for the state house of assembly. Even though I did not get the ticket, I did not make too much noise about that. Instead, I came back and faced my career. If Emeka really had the interest of the guild at heart, he wouldn’t be behaving this way. We have members who are dying and we are worried about this. Everyone is thinking about how to reverse this trend so that the young ones who are coming in can benefit from AHN. So you see, it’s not right for someone who has benefitted from this body to come in and overheat it. If he comes in and spoils the whole thing, who will he be president of?” he asked.
