August 2nd, 2016 – Nollywood Actor Set Ablaze On Movie Set Finally Speaks
See excerpts of Ani Iyoto’s recent chat with Diamond Magazine
Did you encounter any injury at all?
Ani Iyoto: None at all. I’m perfect. The makeup was handled by Dorothea Kwofie and she’s the best in Nigeria. She assured me and kept in touch for months with Hollywood practitioners to achieve that stunt. She’s really good.
But did the extinguisher worked?
Ani Iyoto : Actually we had 5 of them, a fire service truck, water from a stream, an Anti fire suit, and anti fire gel rubbed all over me. Plus there was sand by the road side… beach sand. Only one of the extinguishers failed.
We worried more about the video and not the photos. The video is very real, why did it take you so long to reply?
Ani Iyoto: Many did. I’m trying to respond to all. My phone wasn’t turned on or with me.
While we are on it, we put no blame on the actor, but we can only say, wow! at what people can do for publicity. But tomorrow, if sure a thing happens for real, we may also take it as a stunt.
