One of the top stories making the rounds in Nollywood is that top female filmmaker Emem Isong dumped actress cum producer, Uche Jombo when she (Jombo) needed her assistance the most.
It is not clear what the problem is, however, there are rumuors that Uche Jumbo, who recently had a star-studded attendance for the premiere of her movie ‘Damage’, had fallen out with her pals Emem Isong and Desmond Elliot; hence the decision by Emem to move on.
The trio- Emem Isong, Desmond Elliot and Uche Jombo- has always been perceived as a family who will support each other and work together, especially with the founding of Royal Arts Academy.
Before the birth of this film academy and production company, the dark-skinned screen diva had written a lot of scripts alongside Emem Isong, which were produced by her.
From the days when the film ‘Games Men Play’ was written and produced, these ‘inseparable friends’ have worked together in many movies.
Soon after the launching of Royal Arts Academy, Emem and Uche co-produced ‘Holding Hope,’ which they premiered early this year, where all the Royal Arts family shook the paparazzi at Silverbird Galleria.
Of course, Uche played a major role in the last film premiered by Royal Arts Academy, produced by Emem Isong, Monalisa Chinda and directed by Desmond Elliot entitled, ‘Kiss and Tell’.
Not only that, she was present at the red carpet event during the premiere. However, Emem, Desmond and Monalisa shunned the premiere of ‘Damage’ by Uche.
Emem’s younger sister cum personal assistant told Nigeriafilms.com that Emem was not at the premiere because she traveled to US in July.
People doubted the truth behind her claims as according to them, another arrangement could have been made to accommodate everybody if all was well.
The absence of Chinda and Elliot was another indication that suggested that there could be an agreement to leave Jumbo alone with her movie.
Meanwhile, some are saying Jumbo separated herself from Royal Arts Academy, and rather chose to produce and premiere ‘Damage’ under her own company called Uche Jumbo studios.
