    ‘I am very dangerous when I am cross, Omotola. By the time I am through with you, you will be shocked what will happen to you and your career’.

    The above statement is an extract from the book written by the prolific film maker, actor and director, Charles Novia.

    Charles has poetically revealed the secret behind his fight with Omotola Jolade-Ekeinde.

    ‘Nollywood Till November’ the book, states “As the recording of the movie continued Omotola somehow started getting on a lot of the crew and cast nerves. Since this is a ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ book and since I am generally known to be outspoken, I believe I have to reveal a bit of this, not in any way to disparage her person but to be candid in my opinion. Little unnecessary skirmishes with one person or the other became rampant. It got to a head one day that my Production Manager, who is usually easy-going and friendly lost his temper and came to me. ‘Sir, please this will be the last time I will ever work with you if Omotola features in your movie after this one!’ he complained.

    I was taking everything in my stride and trying to calm frayed nerves when a couple of days to the end of the shoot, Omotola practically drove me crazy. I am very calm most of the time as a person and as a movie director but that day I blew my top!

    I remember screaming at her and she was shocked at first but made the mistake of putting up a defence. That was when I basically warned her in a very deadly tone to be mindful of me.

    Most of my crew members were shocked to see me in that mood. No one had ever seen me like that. I remember Norbert Young, Empress and Tari West calming me, while Ramsey sat coolly in a corner fiddling with his phone. Omotola seeing my mood, wisely went to her car and sulked.‘Who told you to leave my set?’ I bawled. ‘Get back here and lets shoot!’

    All this and many more filled the beautiful pages of the veteran film-maker.

    "Omotola somehow started getting on a lot of the crew and cast nerves." AKA Divatude

    "Little unnecessary skirmishes with one person or the other became rampant." AKA determine to not get along/tantrum throwing when not getting her way

    "Omotola practically drove me crazy." AKA arguing the director into the ground, wanting write her own lines

    People don't realize that Ramsey is one of the coolest people! He almost never raises his voice or loses his temper. He always remains calm and easy no matter the circumstances.

    I have heard his name but I don't know his work. Was he not the one that helped the rumour that Cossy had sex with a dog?

    that was an excerpt from the book.
    if this is the kind of non-telling tell-alls he has, he can keep the book. :angry:

    That's what you get for working with a fame hungry director or wetin e be sef. I have a feeling this will be his last hurray with big name actor/actresses in Nollywood. Talk about kissing and telling. I just know the DIVA wouldn't be caught in this kind of mess. Poor omotola.
