  5. If this happens to lies this actress surpose to ban from the said movie industry,cos am hearing that the producer uchenna Mbunabo take her to Ghana this year to shoot a movie,and the movie is out yet,is left for court to decide on the matter

  6. Uchechi or what ever they call you,you are the one lieing not maryjane. even if she borrow him one naira why did he refuse to pay maryjane back. the director is a gold digger.
