The Associate Producer of Total Crisis, War Game, Girls' Cot, and many other Nollywood home videos, Stanley Ebonline, has been reported by his colleagues who are equally promising and established actors like him, from Lagos, Asaba and it's environs, of swindling them of their hard-earned sweat running into several thousands of naira.

As the story goes, Stanley who is prominent in Lagos and South East was said to have collected the sum of N15, 000 each from some people as registration fee to feature them in some movies only for him to renege on the mutual agreement they entered into.

It was also confirmed that people had in the past been victims of Obi Nmadubobogu and others who allegedly took money from them for forms and sold the forms out to other people.

We need to do something quick before it generates to something else”, one of the top producers in Lagos informed
