If you asked me, i think Kunle Afolayan shouldn't have started those tweets he made yesterday about Igbos and piracy. Many people have condemn his so far and now a Nollywood producer, Ifeanyi Ikpoenyi has joined in the condemnation of the October 1 producer's controversial tweet.
Ikpoenyi insisted that the celebrated producer/director behaved short of the praises that had been showered on him.
Though Afolayan has apologized about his controversial tweet which drew negative reactions from different quarters.
Even though Kunle had apologized, Ikpoenyi, AKA Mr. Hollywood, decided to however express his anger with Afolayan, saying the tweet is useless and the producer undeserving of all the praises he has been getting.
Ikpoenyi said:"I almost ignored Kunle Afolayan's useless tweets about Igbos being the only Pirates in Nigeria, because to me, Kunle is just an over rated Nollywood film maker.
"He's not better than Izu Ojukwu, Teco Benson, Obi Emelonye, Chineze Anyaene to mention but a few.
"The secret of Kunle is his DOP, Yinka Davies, who does everything for him and at the end of the day, Kunle will just come and announce 'action' Give him another local DOP and see if Kunle is worth all the praises his kinsmen shower on him. Kunle should thank Peace Anyiam Osigwe for giving him the platform of AMAA as a pedestal to limelight. Trust me, if Kunle walks the street of Onitsha, Aba, Enugu or any where outside Yoruba land, not even one person will recognise him as a celebrity. I will rather worry myself with the Oba's threat to Ndigbo than spend one second of my time thinking about Kunle's senseless tweets about the Igbos".
In all fairness, I think Mr Hollywood nearly hit below the belt here.
