Veteran Nollywood actress, Hilda Dokubo has reacted after the abductors of her colleagues, Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornel, aka Agbogidi, demanded for the sum of $100,000 as ransom to secure their release.
Taking to her Instastory on Sunday, July 31st, the 52-year-old actress wondered where the kidnappers expect them to get the money from.
She said they clearly misjudged the financial status of the actors they kidnapped because she has worked with them in the past and they are barely getting by.
She added that though some actors put up a lavish front on social media, that’s not their reality.
“Nollywood is about moving from one level of begging for alms to save an ill or dying colleague to now facing the worse of fears over two of their colleagues facing God knows what in the hands of kidnappers!
Where will we turn if not the public using our social media platforms!
Well…Finally the kidnappers have made their demands. They want money! 100k USdollars! From where?
Unfortunately they misjudged the financial status of the actors they kidnapped! And think that as it is in the movies that is how it is in real life. What a life!
Where will we get one hundred thousand USdollars from? God save all of us from this pain and give us your grace for this period.
I know some actors paint the wrong picture on social media all the time but it is only in line with the “Show” part of SHOWbiz. Hopefully you’ll understand what I mean.
I am pained because I know this two personally, have worked with them and I know the truth of how it is with them.
Just been asking myself one question all day, How much does an average actor make in Nigeria?”
