Popular Nollywood yoruba actresses, Kemi Afolabi and Seyi Ariyo a.k.a She Baby, are reportedly at loggerheads over claims that Kemi refused to return the clothes she borrowed from Seyi, who put her on blast last week.
It was learnt that Seyi exposed Kemi with a BBM status message that read: “@Kemi Afolabi, you are coward! Pick up snitch! Oloriburuku, you are a disgrace to Nollywood! Please return my clothes; your case is so pitiful. Get a life!.”
When contacted by a correspondent, the actress narrated the story and said; “I had a movie shoot recently,and Kemi Afolabi happened to be one of the actors I used. She ought to come 10 am, but she got to the location 5 pm. She had just three scenes with us, and I paid her fully already for her role. I was angry she already disrupted part of what we intended using her for because she didn’t come as scheduled. But was persuaded by my director to change her role which she finished around 10 pm.
“I lent her my clothes in the course of shooting. She now held on to the clothes as a bait, insisting I must pay for her accommodation which wasn’t in our budget. If she had come earlier as agreed, she would have been released in time because it’s just three scenes.
“Kemi now held on to my clothes for two about months. All efforts to get her on phone proved abortive. She wouldn’t reply all my messages neither would she pick my calls. After what seems like eternity, because we ain’t that close,I was feeling uncomfortable leaving the clothes with her. I decided to call her friend, Sikiratu Sindodo and reported Kemi to her. And Sindodo persuaded me that it will be settled.
“Until I called Kemi,and she yelled at me. Andshe was angry that I reported her. She now insisted she won’t give me the clothes until I pay for the said hotel room which wasn’t in our contract. All further efforts to get the clothes proved difficult,and I was angry.I later wrote on my PM about the clothes and Saidi Balogun intervened. And I pulled it down immediately. Later,Saidi went to get the clothes from her. But the truth of the matter is that I can’t put the clothes on again. That’s all.”
In an emotional Instagram page, Kemi however denied the allegation. Read what she posted below;
