To my friends
For most of you who have ever commented or sent a chat to me you know I do all I can to respond to them all.
So it hurt me deeply to keep you in silence and in the dark during this period. I couldn’t avoid it.
The calls were maddening. My phone had to be turned off till the matter was resolved in public where it started.
It worried the production that anything I might say as an individual may be misinterpreted further worsening the situation.
I’m truly sorry beyond words for the emotional stress and inconvenience this might have caused you.
It wasn’t a publicity stunt for me as some might still want to have you believe.
It was a huge misunderstanding, misrepresentation and misinterpretation of events of that day and it took a toll on me in ways I cannot explain.
I am however extremely humbled at the love, care and support I got from you during this period. Words fail me. I am indebted to you.
Thanks for being there for me and my family. God bless you and yours. Amen
I am well. It was a movie fire scene that went well.

Just as we speculated, we told you we would find the facts of the matter, and we did. It’s good he is doing well and it was just something off a movie scene.
Do you think it’s still extreme for Nigerians to shoot a live-fire scene?
