Nollywood actor, Gideon Okeke, is not having it rosy these days especially since coming out to blast veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agwu, over his use of English in his movies.

It would be recalled that earlier in the wee, Gideon had come out to point out that Chiwetalu use of Vulgar language in his movies are wrong as it tends to have a negative effect on the viewers but not many agreed with him as he was called all sought of names.

But clearing the air on the issue, Chiwetalu, has come out to point that everyone is entitled tto their opinion but that should be left for the censors board to handle noting that he does not even known the actor that goes by the name Gideon Okeke.

According to him, “Let him leave the censors board to do their job, or does he work with them? Anybody can say anything or come to whatever conclusion they please. The viewers would judge whether I use vulgar words in movies or not. People who watch movies are the ultimate judges. I do not even know who Gideon Okeke is; I do not think I have ever heard his name. If people like AMAA are talking to me about this, I would know how to react appropriately. But this is an individual I do not even know. He has his own style, and I have mine which has won me awards all over the continent and even beyond.”

Chiwetalu will be the second actor that has denied knowing Gideon as actress, Tonto Dikeh, once said same about him after he had come lashing the actress when she was about settling down.
