‘Nollywood Actors Sleep With Sugar Mummies To Live Big’ — Uche Maduagwu

Published

on

Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, who is well known for attacking celebrities on Instagram, has claimed that majority of actors in Nollywood sleep with sugar mummies to live big.

Going further, Uche asserted that there’s no money in the movie industry and the only way for the actors to keep up is to sleep around for money.

He wrote;

“#Nollywood actors sleep with sugar mummy to live big. #Truth is, there is no money in this movie industry, everyone is just packaging. I get up to twenty nude pictures from wealthy sugar mummies on a daily basis, asking to date me and for sex, but as the biggest actor in Naija that has ever gotten the attention of @chrissyteigen in #Hollywood, I have made up my mind never to sleep with a married woman for money.

I don’t want to mention names but more than 85% of popular male actors in our movie industry sleep with rich sugar mummies in Lagos and Abuja to maintain their affluent lifestyles. There is a particular actor in this industry that has even slept with his girlfriend’s mum – all because of money.”

Nigerian actress Funke Akindele and her siblings have been called out by the Bishop of Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Ikorodu, Rt. Rev Samson Osundina, after they refused to attend their father’s burial rite in Ikorodu on January 17, 2020.

Reports have it that their dad, Very Revd. Godwin Olusoji Akindele, was buried on Friday after he died on Saturday, December 7, 2019, aged 73, but his children were conspicuously absent at his Service of Songs.

While delivering the burial sermon, Rev. Osundina thanked the children for taking care of their father during the times when he was ill, but stressed the fact that paying him the last respect as children was very important and significant.

He enjoined them to retrace their steps by making amends wherever necessary. He then suspended the usual outing and thanksgiving service which are final programs in Christian burial, till the deceased’s children are available to attend.

Some Nigerians also didn’t waste time to lampoon Funke Akindele for neglecting her father’s burial.
