NEWSVERGE has gathered that there a fresh war is brewing between Nollywood Veteran, Saidi Balogun and screen Diva, Liz Anjorin.
The feud started weeks before preceding the actress movie premiere, ‘Owo Nairabet’, when a mild drama played out which divided the Yoruba movie sector into two factions.
It all began when one of her movie colleagues, Saidi Balogun, fixed the ‘grand finale’ of his 50th birthday for July 7, which coincided with the date for her premiere.
Balogun, had earlier postponed the four-day event because of the funerals of his late colleagues—Olumide Bakare and Adeshina Adesanya aka Pastor Ajidara and Moji Olaiya.
Anjorin was angered by Saidi’s new date because he is the lead actor in her film.
The actress said she is still bent on waging war against the actor for betraying her trust in him.
She said, “He knew I had chosen July 7. Not only did he slate his party on 7-7-2017, he contracted all my anchors —Gbenga Adeyinka and Denrele Edun— and performers for his party.”
Attempts by businessman and Oluomo of Ago Iwoye, Femi Bakre and his wife, Funke Bakre, to settle the rift between both parties failed.
Anjorin said: “Yes, we were invited and for many hours, they begged Saidi to change his date for me but he refused. Not that he was just clocking 50. He clocked 50 on February 5, so why the desperation to clash with my premiere?
“I will never relate with him again and we would never talk until kingdom come!”.
