Former AGN secretary Bauchi Chapter, Abel Ugada finally reacts to Lemuel knight’s story on the “College Girl” saga released late December 2020.
The African Actor reacted on Facebook wall this evening as qouted below…
Dear college girl,
A Filmmaker in Bauchi insist on having sex with you for a role, forced you into it, got you pregnant and hmmmmm….
So I was in the studio during the mixing and mastering of this song by Lemuelknight. I was shock when I heard your story in the studio, I asked Lemuelknight if its a true life story, he said “yeah, thou some things were added to make the song dope, like lyrics wise but the story is true”.
Since the release of the song, I have been silence cause I have been so busy couple with the fact that I’m somebody who doesn’t really like to prove points or argue on social media but then a lot of persons have drawn my attention to your story (song) asking if something like that happened, and I always say ” I don’t know ” cause truly I don’t know.
WHY I NEED TO ADDRESS THIS sad story??
I am actor, producer, MD “AfriAct Media Productions”, the “Secretary ( Actors Guild of Nigeria – Bauchi state chapter)”, ” Northeast Coordinator ( Film & Video Marketer’s, Producers & Distributors Association of Nigeria), ” Coordinator ” (Northern Filmmakers Association of Nigeria – Bauchi chapter), “Northeast coordinator (Nollywood Excellence and Leadership Awards)”, I was the coordinator ( Creativeminds film academy), let’s not list drama groups & academy I’m training or coordinating so you won’t get tired of reading.
But, the essence of writing you this letter in public is because I don’t know you, yet I need to tell you at first I was disappointed at you for allowing any fool use your head, ??♂️then I realized you might just be an innocent girl who desire to see her God given gifts hit the limelight no matter how small it can get.
PLEASE, Dear College girl IF YOU’RE READING THIS ” I WILL LIKE TO KNOW YOU, I PROMISE TO KEEP YOUR IDENTITY PROTECTED AND I PROMISE TO GIVE YOU A ROLE IN ANY MOVIE I’M PRODUCING OR ANY MOVIE I VE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SUGGEST AN ACTRESS FOR henceforth”.
Meanwhile, I’m sorry the FOOL abused you, I’m sorry I don’t know the FOOL – I wish I do, I sincerely don’t care to know the other side of the story as long as he demanded for sex before giving you a role then he’s not a filmmaker, he’s a beast and THIS KIND OF PERSONS YOU MUST AVOID and I bet you, this person doesn’t belong to any association of ours, if not we would ve known by now but if you’re (the rapist) truly one of us SHAME ON YOU, repent and go beg her for forgiveness.
I know I ve trained and given chance to a lot of actors and actresses without asking for a dime ( except if its an academy – where registration fee might be demanded but for sure not sex) talk more of sex, cause its against our ethics and a right-thinking man shouldn’t do that.
DEAR FRIENDS (especially ladies) PLEASE DO NOT BE DECEIVED, ACTORS DON’T PAY IN KIND OR CASH TO BE GIVEN A ROLE, WHOSOEVER TELLS YOU SO, PLEASE RECORD OR SCREENSHOT THE CHAT AND LET US KNOW, INSHORT POST IT ONLINE!
Filmmaking is just at the foundation level in Bauchi state and we can’t build our industry on a dirty foundation!
I STAND AGAINST SEX FOR ROLE/RAPE!
