It is widely known of the tremendous support and clout political elites in Nigeria had for the electioneering campaign that took place, and most of those who utilized the marketability and prominence of celebrities in the entertainment realm were victorious in their quest. The celebrities on the other hand used the opportunity to not only seek for greater financial support for the entertainment industry especially with regards to movies, but also helped them chuck up good bucks for the services they rendered.
Sources with insider information about the elections that took place however are indicating that whereas most of the celebrities got adequate and prompt remuneration, others including Osita Iheme (Porpo) and Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki) are quite dissatisfied with the way they have been mishandled. They believe the amount that was given them falls below what most others received in the range of $2500-$3000, and have since been expressing their dissatisfaction.
Were they being marginalized and side stepped probably because of their diminutive size? Is that a fair treatment for people who offered unyielding support for a political candidate?
