Behind Nollywood: Shirley Drags Stephen Alajemba to Court Over Misconduct with His Girlfriend on Set
New York based Nollywood actress and Producer, Shirley Ann, who is also the CEO of Little Brothers Global Entertainment, has dragged veteran actor, Stephen Alajemba (Uwaezuoke) who she contracted for her movie to court.
It was gathered that Stephen Alajemba who had been reportedly paid as the lead actor in the movie, allegedly arrived the movie location with his girlfriend who wasn't part of the cast for the movie shoot. Upon their arrival, the alleged girlfriend became a burden to the welfare officers of the movie shoot.
A source who was present at the scene of the incident, had this to say;
"The lady was just doing things the way she liked, and the producer even begged her to leave her set as she wasn't part of her crew. The girl almost attacked the producer, but security agents came to the rescue. She kept moving into rooms booked for actors while they were on set, claiming she is always beside the actor and being protective incase someone wants to poison him"
When contacted, the movie producer, Shirley Ann, revealed that Stephen who was meant to be on set for 5 days, demanded that he wanted a suite-sized double Queen hotel room instead of the single room initially booked for him. Shirley further revealed that he left the movie set after 3 days because his demand to feed his girlfriend at midnight wasn't met, threatening to put the production on hold. According to her, they called even the hotel to eat by 2am.
According to the beautiful actress/producer, Shirley Ann, it took the intervention of the police before he came back with same girl again.
"This woman controls Stephen Alajemba to an extent you know it's not ordinary. Stephen acts by her command. Eats by her command" she said.
According to the New York Film Academy trained actress/producer, the actor's gross misconduct on set of the movie directed by Okey zubelu Okoh DGN, frustrated her as she incurred debts she never bargained for, thus making her file a petition against Stephen in court. She further called on Stephen Alajemba's children to call him to order.
