-Aniebiet Francis says she is not interested in local nominations and appointments
An Akwa Ibom Nollywood actress and movie producer, Aniebiet Francis says there is an impending fight, like a time bomb, ready to explode in the Akwa Ibom entertainment industry following a recent 19 man Entertainment Working Committee approved by the SA to the state Governor on Entertainment, David Sergeant: Utang.
She reveals that the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel is planning on giving loan: Entertainers Loan to members of the industry, hence, the reason for the war.
In reaction, fans say she is making the statement because she was not included in the committee.
Aniebiet Francis tops the list of movie stars in the state; someone would have expected her name among the three actors nominated for the the committee; if not for anything, but to represent the females in the industry. Utang Akwa Ibom, in his committee, nominated Anny Jonah; Moses Eskor and Emma Solution (from the movie industry) to make up the committee.
It is on this basis that people think that Aniebiet is just being jealous.
In her response, she said she was not even interested in the committee; and that she is “busy with other pressing things that would benefit the industry more.” And, these, according to her, are “making a Netflix standard movie and opening more marketing and distribution channels for the Industry.”
She said she is not interested in local nominations and appointments, stating that her eyes “go only see awards and nominations from places that matter.”
