Nollywood Filmmaker Seun Egbegbe Left in the Cold as Colleagues Abandon Him on His Birthday

Nollywood filmmaker and producer, Seun Egbegbe, experienced a lack of support and recognition from his colleagues as he marked another year of his life. Egbegbe's reputation has been marred by legal troubles, most notably his conviction for fraud by a Federal High Court in Lagos. After spending over six years in prison, the filmmaker attempted to celebrate his birthday on May 31st, but his industry colleagues remained noticeably silent.

Egbegbe's legal troubles began when he was remanded on February 10, 2017, following allegations of defrauding several Bureaux De Change operators in Lagos over a two-year period. He was accused of deceiving the operators by promising to exchange naira for foreign currencies, leading to substantial financial losses for the victims.

On his birthday, the 46-year-old filmmaker took to social media to celebrate himself, sharing a photo along with the caption, "Am plus 1 today. Happy birthday to me." However, his colleagues neither engaged in celebratory comments nor dedicated social media posts to acknowledge his special day.

The apparent snub from his industry peers underscores the strained relationships and tarnished reputation that Seun Egbegbe currently faces. Despite his contributions to the Yoruba movie industry in the past, his legal entanglements and alleged fraudulent activities have seemingly led to a distancing of support and recognition from his colleagues.

As Egbegbe enters another year of his life, it remains to be seen whether he can rebuild his image and regain the trust and respect of his colleagues in the Nigerian film industry. The lack of acknowledgment on his birthday serves as a stark reminder of the challenges he faces in reclaiming his position within the industry and rebuilding his professional relationships.
