“Mole, Mountain and My Brother Mike Ezuruonye
I’m constrained to freely offer a reaction to Mike Ezuruonye’s harangue against my individual.
On Thursday, I shared on my Instagram course of events a message posted on my remark segment about an unwarranted implication of his association in tricks.
With a message in Yoruba, which I engraved on the post: “E gba mi o. Ewo n temi?” (Spare me, what’s my own) I had imparted the post on my course of events to the goal to facetiously make an impression on purveyors of phony news and doubtful claims that they should free me and by expansion my different partners of such careless charges.
It was not only a message to unpretentiously refute such allegations however to impart a sign that I glare against such meddlesome messages.
Unfortunately, my partner and sibling took it seriously even after trade of private messages to clarify the innocuous aim behind my post.
Not just has he gotten me out transparently and making an online media gala of his repudiation, he has additionally blamed me for being against Igbo.
He isn’t right!
While my statement of regret to him remains alive, on the grounds that it’s quite reasonable; it is regrettable of him to bring unnecessary ethnic opinion into a simple molehill of an issue that can’t be liked as a mountain.
To me, it didn’t make a difference that the sender of that message is evidently Igbo. What’s significant is that my post drew no negative remarks until Mike chose to get the party started.
To dissppoint Mike and other ethnic jingoists, this molehill issue isn’t sufficient for me to climb the housetop to yell my detribalised Nigerian nature. The variety of star partners and topics treated in my movies, notwithstanding the staff in my workforce and companions all through Nollywood that I partner with, will effortlessly put a lie to the modest enemy of Igbo frock that Mike has pitiable attempted to dress me with.
My most extreme respect is constantly held for him as a man of honor and huge heart that I realized that he generally will be.
