Tinsel actor, Gideon Okeke, drew some flak during the week when he took to his social media page to say that veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu should be sanctioned for his use of vulgar words in movies.
He wrote, “You know him as the wicked uncle in films, but I need to check the sanity of my ears and mind whenever he comes on screen…the measure of liberty this actor enjoys from directors and producers to improvise vulgarities in movies is not funny anymore…hiding behind the pretext that not all your audience understands Igbo language is no excuse to throw all decorum out of the window…this is a case for the Film and Video Censors Board…”
However, after several attacks from his fans, Gideon deleted the post.
Sunday Scoop reached out to Agu for his reaction to the allegations levelled against him, and he said, “Let him leave the censors board to do their job, or does he work with them? Anybody can say anything or come to whatever conclusion they please.
The viewers would judge whether I use vulgar words in movies or not. People who watch movies are the ultimate judges. I do not even know who Gideon Okeke is; I do not think I have ever heard his name.
If people like AMAA are talking to me about this, I would know how to react appropriately. But this is an individual I do not even know. He has his own style, and I have mine which has won me awards all over the continent and even beyond.”
