Sept 13, 2012 – Charles Novia Fights Omotola Jalade On Movie Set, Recounts Experience In New Book

Nollywood Movie Producer, Charles Novia in his new book cleared the air on the rumours that he had a confrontational fight with Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde few weeks back.

In his new book titled Nollywood Till November, Charles Novia gave us a glimpse of what transpired between himself and Omotola on a movie set.

Book Excerpt Below:

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. ‘ 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’. 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!’”

    well, what shall we say to these things? As an objective person, what’s best is to hear Omotola’s side of the story before jumping into conclusions or taking sides.

    These so called actresses have a way of roving their shadows on others at locations. They should learn to be modest and do what they are paid for. Nice1 Charles. But you too should buckle up with Nollywood production, otherwise, it will soon be over
