Chiwetel+Ejiofor+12+Years+Slave+Screening+lzohIdS2R6ml

A few months ago Academy award nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor received backlash from Nigerians when he said during an interview on the Ellen show while promoting 12 Years A Slave that he was from London.

This did not go down well with many Nigerians who felt the actor did not identify with his Nigerian heritage at all.

Today during the press conference of cast and crew of Half Of A Yellow Sun which took place at The Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos, the Oscar nominated actor addressed the incident, saying he is “Nigerian-British” and proud of Nigerian heritage.

Afrocandy Forced To Beg For Money For Daughter’s Education, Despite Hype From X Rated Movie “Destructive Instinct”

5776e7ea-208c-41ca-9958-132906c67446_profile

Last year Afrocandy became an internet sensation when she released promo videos for her X Rated movie “Destructive Instinct”. In the trailer you can see a very nekkid Afrocandy performing various sex acts with her co-stars. When I interviewed Afrocandy in June last year and she shocked many by how eloquent, smart and savvy she is. [WATCH IT HERE]

From the interview I felt Afrocandy, who is a single mother to two girls was doing all she could to take care of her children. So it is quite sad to learn that she did not make a dime from the much hyped movie, she has gone on record to say that her distributors in Nigeria played a fast one on her and she has not seen any money from the movie. She is now left with no choice but to plead for money online to send her daughter to college in the States.
