Nollywood actors, Kanayo Kanayo and Walter Anga have knocked a lady for criticizing celebrities over the death of their colleague, Leo Mezie.
Kemi Filani news reported on Monday, May 16 that actor Leo Mezie died after battling kidney disease for years.
The actor, Leo Mezie reportedly had a transplant earlier this month but succumbed to the life threatening illness on n Saturday, May 14, 2022.
Taking to social media, his colleague Chioma Toplis wrote,” Actor Leo Mezie is dead. He died on Saturday in Abuja while recovering from kidney transplant. His corpse has been moved to Umuahia his hometown. RIP Leo”
The devastating news broke the hearts of many celebrities particularly in the movie industry and they took to social media to mourn him.
A critic who wasn’t buying their fake tears lashed out at them for being two faced.
According to her, many of them didn’t help the actor with his health bills while he was alive.
She wrote, “Watch the yeyebrities begin to cry more than the bereaved now meanwhile, he had been soliciting for funds to no avail”.
Reacting to it, Kanayo Kanayo slammed her for talking down on celebrities.
He queried if the female critic is part of the Actors Guild that she knew none of the actors helped the deceased out.
He noted how it is only in Nigeria, people slam celebrities for not doing anything or enough for a societal cause.
“Eteyi, you are an idiot to talk down on celebrities. Are you one? Are you of the Actor’s Union? Did anyone call for your assistance by any means. It’s only in Nigeria that nitwits like you talk about celebrities not doing anything or enough for a societal cause or one another. Looking at your page, you have no followership, therefore, it’s safe to conclude you are looking for evidence”.
Joining him, Walter Anga cautioned the lady to say what she is sure of.
He pointed out how people love to talk less about people in the industry without knowing what and how they have assisted.
“Auntie say what you know oh!!!! You guys just talk less about people in the industry without knowing what and how they have assisted. Must everyone come to SM to tell things were done without bringing it to social media”.
