Veteran nollywood movie producer, Don Pedro Obaseki has reacted to Rita Dominic’s statement via an appeal, telling the actress to learn that there’s nobility in humility.
Recall that few days ago, the award winning actress Rita Dominic caused an uproar on social media with her statement that not all Nollywood movies should be taken to the cinemas.
The actress urged movie makers to make sure that their works are of quality before rushing to the cinemas to put trashy projects.
In an open appeal to the actress, Don Pedro wrote:
”AN APPEAL TO #RITA_DOMINIC – From Don Pedro Obaseki.
“My dear star, sister & colleague’, Rita Nwaturocha (aka Rita Dominic & once upon a time, Rita Lamb), I’ve had the inglorious privilege of reading about your “Table Shakings” and the reactions they’ve elicited.
“Ma, humility is a virtue, and caution ain’t cowardice! I remember a few times around 2003-2006, when you used to “sweat” at Chico’s in Bank Olemoh, roaming from one set to the other, while recording TWO or THREE movies at the same Time!
“Don’t be like Chichidodo, the proverbial Ghanaian bird in Ayi kwe Armah’s novel. Chichidodo was the bird that hated shit, but feeds only on the maggots from Shit.
“Please dearie. Leave that Table alone. It is fragile and you are right atop it dressed in your Sunday Best! But the table floats on the Lagoon of filth and jaded black trash. You may slip headlong into the murky lagoon, and because you’ve maligned all that may be willing to lend you a helping hand, you may be left to drown with no one to help pull you ashore.
“Life is a trickster. Let it not prank you. Learn that there’s nobility in humility. No be beans, my dear. As a free-spirited “young man”, I offer this ” small advice”, albeit with NO PREJUDICES. Your journey from Choba & Delta Park in Uniport to where you are now is worthy of commendation. Don’t waste it on an ego-trip.
“Please remain assured of my most esteemed regards.
“We still love you.
“-Don Pedro Obaseki, MBA, PhD.”
