Producers are benching us for those with British accent - Actress Daniels . . Nollywood actress Tracy Daniels has revealed why her face has been missing on the big screen in recent times. . . In a recent chat with vanguardngr, she blamed the ugly development on some notable production companies, lamenting their discriminatory attitudes towards the home-based actors. . . According to her, apart from the fact that good scripts have been hard to come by in recent times, most notable production companies are only featuring what she calls “UK returnee-actors” in their movies. . . Stressing further, she said “It’s so bad that the discrimination is now based on who speaks foreign accent fluently and talent is no longer the yardstick for selecting actors to feature in movies. . . Most of us who are based in the country have been ‘benched’ by the giant production companies simply because they want to cast British-trained actors to shoot Nigerian version of American superhero film, Black Panther.”

Mikel hasn’t called me in 5 yrs, but kidnappers think he sends millions to me – Dad . . Chief Michael Obi, the 74-year-old father of Super Eagles Captain, John Mikel Obi, recently regained freedom from kidnappers for the second time and is now sharing his terrifying five-day experience and reasons why Mikel rarely comes home. . . In a recent chat with Dailytrust, when asked about the experience, he said: “I was travelling home for a family meeting in Enugu. Not quite long after a checkpoint, we heard gunshots ahead of us, so we stopped. . . My driver reckoned it was armed robbers, and tried to reverse the car. But another car from nowhere blocked us from behind, and the people within came and dragged us out. The kidnappers were six, well-armed and masked. . . They assaulted us, and dragged us into the bush. We walked for many hours, and when I complained that I could not continue, they beat me again. Eventually, they told my driver to carry me on his back. . . But after a while, he also got tired and dropped me. We walked into the bush for what seemed like the whole night, until the next morning. I asked them what they wanted from me, and that was when they told me they wanted N100m. . . We communicated in Hausa, and some broken English. I told them I could not afford it, and they said they heard that my son sends me N50m to me bi-weekly. I told them I only had N2 million in my bank account. . . I finally pegged it at N10 million. My other son, Ebele, who is the goalkeeper for Heartlands of Owerri, contacted Mikel. That was how the ransom was made available.” . . When asked about his relationship with Mikel, he said: “It is an issue, but we don’t know what to do. It’s over five years now without a phone call from him to me. But he communicates with his mother. . . There is nothing I have not done to fix it. God has told me that I should not feel hurt. When we start to talk about it, I say, ‘Well, as long as I see him on TV, doing great, no
