Nollywodd actress Rita Dominic is seriously under fire for some remarks she made a few days ago about Nollywood movies saturating cinema halls in the country. The thespian believes that not all movies should make it to the big screen, proper vetting to get the best works u there should be encouraged.
A top Movie producer Don Pedro-Obaseki has written an open letter to Rita, reminding her of her roots and warned her not to despise little beginnings as the sky is big for all to play. Read his letter below:
”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”.
