The spotlight has now been shone on Nollywood and the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) going by the recent buzz the appointment of patrons has caused on social media.
The president of the guild, Emeka Rollas, has now taken to social media via his Instagram page to share the news of another appointment of the guild’s patron.
Nigerian billionaire politician, Ned Nwoko, has been appointed as the chairman of the board of national patrons of the AGN.
Emeka Rollas shared the news on social media and described Ned Nwoko as a man with a lion heart.
He wrote: “Rt Hon Prince Ned Nwoko a man with a lion heart. Husband to one of our own Princess Regina Daniels Nwoko. It was my pleasure decorating you with all the instruments of your appointment as Chairman Board of National Patrons of Actors Guild of Nigeria AGN. You have promised to join hands with other patrons to massively support the AGN projects. God keep you.”

Just recently, Rollas responded to criticism he got for appointing controversial Nigerian senator, Elisha Abbo, as a patron of the AGN.
Veteran actress, Hilda Dokubo, called out the guild on social media and demanded that Abbo be delisted from the patrons of the guild.
In an interview with Plus TV, Rollas defended Abbo’s appointment. He said that a panel was set up at the Senate to penalise Abbo over the issue and that who is the AGN to get robed in such cases.
He also said that the senator apologised for his act of violence against the lady and that the lady has not said that his apology was not accepted.
Rollas expressed displeasure at how Dokubo handled the matter and he said that she claims to be a member of the guild but she did not write a letter or call to air her grievances but that she made a video on social media just to draw attention to herself.
