Nollywood Actor Allegedly Burnt On Set Reveals It Was All A Stunt

Nollywood actor, Ani Iyoho who many
thought had gotten badly burnt while
filming a Nollywood movie after seeing
photos of him lying critically injured on
a hospital bed has come out to reveal
that the entire debacle was a publicity
stunt and nothing bad happened to

He shared new photos of himself
looking hale and hearty along with a
statement on his Instagram page.

He wrote:

To my friends

For most of you who have ever
commented or sent a chat to me you
know I do all I can to respond to
them all. So it hurt me deeply to
keep you in silence and in the dark
during this period. I couldn't avoid
it. The calls were maddening. My
phone had to be turned off till the
matter was resolved in public where
it started.

It worried the production that
anything I might say as an
individual may be misinterpreted
further worsening the situation. I'm
truly sorry beyond words for the
emotional stress and inconvenience
this might have caused you. It
wasn't a publicity stunt for me as
some might still want to have you
believe. It was a huge
misrepresentation and
misinterpretation of events of that
day and it took a toll on me in ways I
can not explain.

I am however extremely humbled at
the love, care and support I got from
you during this period. Words fail
me. I am indebted to you. Thanks for
being there for me and my family.
God bless you and yours. Amen

I am well. It was a movie fire scene
that went well.

Ani Iyoho

Explaining how the whole idea was
conceived, director of the movie;
Stanlee Ohikhuare and his production
team headed by the producers –
Kelechi Udegbe and Ugochukwu
Azikiwe put together a press
conference to get the real truth out.

According to the movie team, they
hoped that the video would cause a
remarkable change in the attitude and
perception of fellow Nigerians and the
world at large, towards Nollywood's

They said they conceptualised the
publicity spin to create film awareness
and industry patronage via media
engagement; utilizing the ever evolving
social media platform to gain reach and
peculiar attention to an entire industry.

They also added that the government
intervention is needed to ensure that
there's adequate funding to curb ugly
occurrences like the one insinuated in
the circulated video.
