5 things about stunts that Nollywood doesnt want you to remember

25 August 2016, 18:50

We have put together a list of notable accidents in Nollywood that could have been avoided if there was a professional stunt man was on set. Nollywood do not see  it as a problem, and generally sweep it under the carpet. Trained stunt men would save the life and limb of many movie stars, if taken seriously.

1. Samuel Robinson
During filming of the 2016 movie "8 Bars and a Clef," the actor twisted his ankle while performing an intense scene.

"I twisted my ankle performing an intense scene and was incapacitated for a few days. It was a very intense project and I literally sweat, bled and cried for this movie," 

2. Denrele Edun
During filming of the movie "Pepper Soup," the former Soundcity VJ fell and got a deep cut above his right eye. 

“All in a bid to make my acting more convincing, I was supposed to drop into a faint in the very first scene of the movie "PEPPER SOUP" but I guess I miscalculated and fell hard on a metallic object on the floor that pierced my face” he said after accident.”

3. Sanyeri
The actor injured himself while performing a stunt on set of his new movie "Asiwaju."

"The character I was playing had to climb the roof of a house because he had some spiritual problems. When the landlord of the house realized that someone was on his roof, he called the police and while avoiding arrest, the character had to jump off the roof of the house," the actor said.

"That was how I broke my leg and the doctors said that the cast would be on my leg for a month."

4. Emma Ehumadu

The actor injured himself in 2014 while filming a robbery scene alongside Jim Iyke. The actor crashed his head from a fall.

5. Uche Jombo

The actress suffered an accident while on the set of the 2012 movie, "Ikenna." The actress dislocated a bone while preparing to film a scene.
