Veteran Nollywood actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, has slamed Reno Omokri, a former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, for dragging the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi over actor Mr Ibu’s ill heath.
Recall Mr. Ibu, who is battling an unspecified illness that could cost him his leg, turned to social media on Wednesday to ask for help from the public.
Reno Omokri challenged Peter Obi to cover the actor’s medical expenses on his X page claiming that Mr Ibu had endorsed and campaigned for him as his preferred candidate during the 2023 general elections.
Reacting to Omokri’s post, Kanayo in a clip shared on his Instagram page on Thursday, condemned and described him as wicked.
He said, “As actors, our heart goes out to our dear colleague, Mr Ibu. His family has done their best since it was reported last year. And now they have come out to say we have done our best, we need public support.
“Now, I condemn in strict terms Reno Omokri, who is coming to call Peter Obi’s name and so on. It is not a friendly thing. It’s wicked. And to Uche Maduagwu, who talked about shame on top actors. Shame on you too because you don’t have any value and level to call out our names.
“It’s an individual thing to support a colleague. It becomes a collective thing as Actors Guild of Nigeria. Don’t forget some people learn to give personally, privately. Even those who have given can also be appreciated on a scale of what they have given to John Okafor.”
