He wrote: “This past few days has been the toughest time of my life, some friendship started while some ended in this few days.

“Sometimes God allows things to happen to good people just to show u who your REAL friends are… Its so ironic how those ‘friends’ close to u never cared when u down, those close friends of mine I talk to everyday even on the phone never showed any care or affection towards my situation.. Can’t even count the number of DM’s and calls I got from pple I don’t even know or talk to just to check up on me and no how they can help.

“Celebrities are also humans forget what u see on TV ,they feel pain and they also try to reach out to pple, most people that HV met me or talked with me can bear me witness that I’m not one of those celebs that are rude, proud and acts like a god…. Its so sad when I tried to reach out to most people this past few days all I got was the ” I DONT CARE SIGNAL” And it has made me realized that most people I v got around me are just there cos of the name, celebrity status and fame, just wanna say a big thank u to all those people that I don’t no or talked to but yet check up on me everyday and even tried to help my situation… Pls be careful of FRENEMIES….I love u all regardless.”

This is not the first situation where an artiste has complained about the nonchalance of colleagues in the Nigerian movie industry.

In a similar incident, Nollywood actor Charles Okocha in the past berated the actions of his colleagues in the Nigerian movie industry saying they were not there for him during his time of need.
