Something is abuzz in Nollywood at the moment. It was the total absence of Bob Manuel's colleagues at his mother's burial. Before the burial date news was all over the place and everyone seemed to behave as if they would not waste time going to Ogidi. Efforts were even made to mobilize his colleagues but everybody seemed to be saying the same thing as the burial date drew closer and closer.....They said ...
...that Bob has never attended any event by his colleagues.
...that He has a way of avoiding other people's events and this was more like a pay back time for him.
Some attributed it to arrogance, while others said said it is his stingy nature.
So it turned out that during the burial of his mother in Ogidi non of his colleagues came except Steve Eboh, Charles Inojie, Emmanuel Ogugueh Chidi Nwokeabia and Ejike Metuselah,The last two are his very close friends
At the church service some of the villagers were overheard lamenting the absence of his Nollywood members.
The question also is, 'where were all his Nollywood colleagues from UNIPORT? Francis Duru, Ejike Asiegbu, Charles Okafor,Victor Osuagwu, Lancelot Imasuen, Basorge Tariah jnr Hilda et al.
There was a lot to eat and drink but attendance was poor. This was below expectation for somebody of Bob's standard.
What played out in Ogidi was shameful and really not in the spirit of solidarity,Please whoever has a problem with Bob should tell him so to his face abeg.
Please Bob try to make peace with your colleagues,you have no other constituency apart from Nollywood and i beg you to dabble into politics alright but carry your colleagues along if at all you have been ignoring their events!
Sometimes one bad turn doesnt deserve another...especially when one is burying their parent!..ah ah!
Note:Bob Manuel is at the moment Special Assistant creative media to the government of his state and he is doing well.
