Uche Odoputa, a prominent figure in Nollywood, indeed belongs to a generation of actors who have left an indelible mark on the Nigerian film industry. His gradual fading from the limelight over time is a testament to the ebb and flow of fame and fortune.

During the heyday of Nollywood, actors like Uche Odoputa poured their hearts and souls into their craft. They were not just performers; they were storytellers, breathing life into characters that resonated with audiences across Nigeria and beyond. Their dedication was unwavering, even though financial rewards were often modest compared to today’s standards.

While some present-day actors have amassed considerable wealth, it’s essential to recognize that the landscape has changed. The rise of streaming platforms, international collaborations, and increased visibility has led to greater financial opportunities for contemporary actors, especially female stars. However, this doesn’t diminish the contributions of veterans like Uche Odoputa.

Uche Odoputa’s legacy endures, reminding us that success in the entertainment industry isn’t solely measured by bank balances. It lies in the impact made, the stories told, and the emotions stirred. As we celebrate the new generation of Nollywood stars, let’s also honor those who paved the way—the actors who gave their all, leaving an everlasting imprint on the silver screen.

Skiibii reacts to Nicki Dabarbie’s ‘ritual’ accusation

Nigerian singer Skiibii has broken his silence following accusations made by video vixen and influencer Nicki Dabarbie, alleging that he attempted to use her for “ritual.”

Dabarbie has been vocal on social media, claiming that Skiibii and Mayorkun tried to involve her in a “ritual” during a boat cruise arranged by Skiibii. She also accused them of summoning “fake police” to assault her and confiscate her phone because she was live-streaming on social media.

In response, Skiibii has refuted Dabarbie’s allegations, labeling them as “false” and asserting that she is attempting to tarnish his reputation.

He further stated that he has reported the incident to the police.

On his Instagram story, he wrote: “I typically remain silent when people come for me in the media, but I feel it’s necessary to address recent events, especially when false information is being spread. I will no longer allow anyone to tarnish my image because they know Skiibii won’t run to the media to speak.

“Although I’ve remained silent on all issues to preserve peace, I believe it’s time to reconsider that approach. In due time, the truth will come to light.

“Firstly, I want to clarify that the narratives being circulated by people and various blogs are completely false, and the truth will come to light on all fronts.

“I have reported the incident to the Nigeria Police Force because there’s nothing to hide, and I trust that they will conduct a thorough investigation. I will let the law take its course to its full measure this time.”
