Just as it was a wrap at Aboh, Mbaise, Imo State where Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic, tied the knot with her lover and publisher of DailyTimes, Fidelis Anosike, Nigerian Twitter users cannot but notice the absence of some Nollywood colleagues at the event.
Rita Dominic’s fellow actresses, Ini Edo, Chioma Akpotha, Uche Jombo, Nse Ikpe-Etim, were among those present.
However, some Twitter users who were obviously anticipating the presence of Genevieve Nnaji and Omotola Jalade couldn’t keep shut but had to air their concerns while others were of the opposite opinion.
Controversial actor, Uche Maduagwu has slammed Genevieve for not showing up at the event and also not posting a congratulatory message on her social media feeds.
His post reads; “Whatever you celebrate you go attract, if you Wan smell marriage, attend the marriage ceremonies of others, or at least congratulate dem on social media… even if you no do am as colleagues, do am as sisters from the same State, even if you dey busy that you can not be there physically, wetin e go cost you to post a congratulatory message on social media?“
Responding to Maduagwu’s post, an Instagram user, mimicloset0, commented; “She has not been online for a long time. why not check up on her if she’s physically fit common na“.
Another, frankchukwunyere, also said; “Haven’t you noticed that Genevieve has been mute for some months now… Should be concerned about her too“.
Supporting the actor’s outburst, a user, sophia_oritsetseamaye, said; “U re right on this…… they were best friends……. atleast posting on status isn’t a bad idea.”
In separate reactions on Twitter, a Twitter user @prudenceovlagos, tweeted; “So actress Genevieve nnaji didn’t attend the wedding of Rita Dominic , be forming beyounce.. LMFAO. Béyounce of the federal republic of UAR.”
Another user, @The_Ronkee, however, tweeted; “Wedding is not even up 24 hours and people are complaining that Genevieve and Omotola didn’t show up”.
Enjoining people not to jump into conclusion, a user, @Cruisebaby___, said; “Rita Dominic wedding was a motivation to lot of women and men:it is better to marry late than marry wrong. Also Genevieve not attending shouldn’t be a problem,she get reason.Las Las her love fit dey real pass people wey go chop jollof rice or to see if d man is poor or rich. Rest”.
In a similar opinion, another user, @nnethequeen, posted “It’s people that like eye service in their personal lives that are asking where Genevieve is. How does it concern you that she’s not there? How?”.
