For a while now, there have been reports that Nollywood’s fantastic four, Ufoma McDermott, Omoni Oboli, Uche Jombo, and Chioma Akpotha, have been having disagreements.
However, one of them, Ufoma McDermott has said even if several Nollywood friendships do suffer tough times, her relationship with her colleagues, Omoni Oboli, Uche Jombo, and Chioma Akpotha has lasted for a long time.
In a recent interview with Sunday Scoop, her words, “What we feel for each other is care and love. If you love someone, you look out for them. I don’t know if I have ever sat back and drawn a plan, saying this person is going to be my friend. It just happens; your spirit just flows with certain kinds of people. You allow them into your inner circle. It is something that just happens, it is not planned.”
We are happy for them.
