• Popular Nollywood actress, Queeneth Hilbert, has reached out to the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), regarding her suspension
• In a worded document sent through her lawyers, the actress aired her grievances including the lack of fair hearing
• According to her, she wasn’t given a chance to speak or to defend herself before she was suspended from the AGN
Nollywood movie star, Queeneth Hilbert, has finally reacted to her indefinite suspension by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) after claims that she breached contracts.
According to reports from TheBladeNGR, the actress was suspended over her issue with Demek Movies that claimed she did not keep to the terms of their agreement.
In a letter sent through the actress’ lawyers, Queeneth explained her side of things and fired back at the AGN for not giving her a fair hearing and punishing her for an offence she didn’t commit.

Queeneth maintained that she kept to the terms of agreement with Demek Movies and that the company was the one that deliberately frustrated the job.
The movie star in her letter claimed Demek Movies was running two productions at the same time with an A-list actor that she was supposed to co-star with in one of the movies.
She claimed the producer, Solomon Apete, was more focused on the other movie and many times they were on set doing nothing because the lead actor was on the second production, thereby frustrating the filmmaking process.
Excerpts from the letter sent through her lawyer reads:
“(I) Our client discovered that one of the A list Actors to co-act with her was retained by the same producer in another movie being produced at the same time.

(ii) The producer, more interested, in that other movie always pulled off the A Actor and made it virtually impossible for our client’s job to take off smoothly.
(iii) Our client had the bad experience of being brought to the set only to wait and do nothing. She has a video of some of the crew lying down doing nothing.
(iv) Our client informed the producer in a writing that inspite of the delibrate delays from them, she must be offset by 3rd June,2021 to attend to an extremely important appointment fixed before the time the contract for 7 days, for the movie Production, had been fixed. Thus she added an extra 3 days to make up for the delays from the producer. She further promised that she would return in a week time or less to complete whatever remains of the scenes. It is vital to note that by the time our client left Production, she had completely delivered on over 90% of the contract.”
