Unknown to many,the popular ban handed out to about 10 Nollywood practitioners five years ago by the Film and Video Marketers Association Idumota Lagos had moral connotations.
While actresses like Omotola Jalade Ekeinde,Genevieve Nnaji,top actors Richard Mofe Damijo(RMD), Kenneth Okonkwo and others were banned for charging excessive artiste fees at that time,only one director cum producer was on the list.
That was Tchidi Chikere.
Sources at Idumota Video Marketers Association told us last week following the story of a crash in the Mbaise Imo State born actor's marriage,that the great Awka Assembly of the marketers,banned Tchidi alongside other top players on the allegation that he was too close to some married actresses and that it was bringing Nollywood into disrepute.
Our source said that Tchidi's ban was the only one not explained to the public at the time due to its peculiar circumstances.
This story is however coming over five years later following the crash of Tchidi's marriage to his beautiful wife,Sophia.
