Fresh Nollywood gist making circles in the media indicate that Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele of Jenifa fame engaged fellow actress, Sugar Asoegwu in a hot fight in the city Abuja, Nigeria, recently.
Funke was reported to have shown negative attitude to Sugar, who straight away rained heavy words on the star actress. Funke was apparently expecting Sugar to worship and tremble at the sight of her, as an A-list and accomplished actress. This got Sugar filled with rage and was reported to be ready for a show down with the crooner.
The feud between the two started when Funke learnt that Sugar was given a lead role by the movie producer in a movie Funke was given a sub lead character to play. A development we learnt Funke saw as a slap on her person as an A-list actress in the industry.
It further was revealed that Funke accused Sugar of dating the movie producer (names withheld), as a result, getting the lead character for the movie, while she got the supporting actress role.
Funke was said to have later sworn not to feature in any movie by the producer or act in any movie Sugar is billed to be part of.
This allegation by Funke was said to have infuriated Sugar the more, who almost descended on The Return of Jenifa producer, promising to teach her a lesson of her life. It took the intervention of those on set to quench the imminent trouble, something that was described as “near to a female war camp.”
Should completion for movie roles leads to quarrels that lead to angry exchanges between artistes?
