Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Omoni Oboli called out a writer, Wilfred Okiche for criticising her movies, including her blockbuster, Wives on Strike.
Obviously pissed, the actress listed the accolades her movies have gotten and told Wilfred to make a movie of his own before criticising someone else’s.
Part of Wilfred’s article
She wrote, ‘NIGERIANS AND THE CRAB MENTALITY AGAIN! I usually won’t do this but I guess this caught me on the wrong side today! Sometimes we let rubbish go on for too long and it doesn’t even help any of us!
‘I work hard, I really do! If I will say so myself, I am an AMAZING writer and a great producer and director! There! I said it! Deal with it!
So apparently, Wilfred Okichie of @ynaija is smarter than hundreds of thousands of you who have watched my movies and enjoyed it. #BeingMrsElliott was opening film in different film festivals and is still getting great reviews!
‘#TheFirstLady was audience choice award at the last Nollywood Week Festival in Paris. #WivesOnStrike, don’t even get me started on that one! Awards and recognition galore! After all is said and done, my greatest reward is the love and appreciation of you my #Omonifam.
‘That’s all I need and I will keep doing the movies you love. On that note, watch out for #OkaforsLaw It will blow your minds!
‘To all naysayers, put your money where your mouth is: produce your own film so you can show us how to do better! You want publicity Wilfred? there! Enjoy it!
‘Well done @ynaija truly a ‘smart’ move. And of course it started with a cheeky ‘Omoni Oboli is bae’. News flash darling, I ain’t your bae!

‘Ps: I saw some ‘constructive’ criticism of #WivesOnStrike and I took it on board’
