According to reports, Nigerian actor and model, has been accused of duping some teenagers.
A Facebook user named Ann Fina, has called out the actor for allegedly duping her and some other teenagers of some money from a competition he organised. Ann claimed she took part in the competition for scriptwriters and actors (Nigerian Teens and Twenties movie auditions, NTTA). She took to Facebook to narrate her story of how she won the competition but did not get any price money and car as promised.
Read her story below;
“Sometime in 2015, I came across one competition for scriptwriters and actors (Nigerian Teens and Twenties movie auditions, NTTA) in Linda’s blog.”
The prizes were mouth watering.. 3million naira plus a car and an intense training to teach winners the rudiments of screenwriting and acting… But then, the entry fee was 3k. I was so enthusiastic… I was like, “Ann, Shey you want to be a foremost scriptwriter? Don’t miss this opportunity.
Even though I came across the competition one week to the deadline, I subjected myself to intense struggle trying to come up with a movie idea. Scriptwriters were to break down their scripts into 150 scenes. Each day, I sat in front of my laptop typing and editing until I was able to come up with something…
The D-day came… I paid my entry fee… My hard earned 3k… And went to the venue for the audition to submit my script.. The people that came for the audition eeh They were so many… Both scriptwriters and actors. I almost lost my confidence but then, I still submitted my script.
After the audition, I received a call from them declaring me the winner. Hay Gawd! I almost ran mad… I was like, is that how I will just have 3 million Naira in my account plus a fxxking car? Not only that, I could even be a celebrity. I can’t describe the joy I felt that day.
I can’t describe the joy I felt that day. All I know is that, it made me crazy. My folks didn’t hear word that day, I swear. The next day I traveled to Imo to collect my certificate and take pishures with the judges. I almost died of excitement at the thought of posing with celebrities and taking pictures with them. Afterwards, we were told that they will get back to us after the competition in other states. Shey, 2 years haff passed now… We haven’t heard anything from them.
Whatever you did with my script, I forgive you. But biko, I need my 3k back. I’m broke AF and I want to subscribe. For the past few weeks I have been using free Facebook and it’s frustrating abeg. My crush has been posting pictures and I can’t even view them…
I just keep using the love reaction upandan Bring back my 3k please Why is it so difficult for people to be genuine in their dealings? Fraudsters everywhere. Ann would have been a celebrity by now”
Alex Ekubo is yet to respond to the claims made by the teenager.
