Shan George, a veteran Nigerian film actress, has resorted to Instagram to deliver a harsh warning to her colleagues in Nollywood who beg monetary contributions for the welfare of others.
She claimed that when her colleagues get acting roles that pays well, they never considered her.
Shan George went on to say that they don’t even give her a minor job like “waka pass” so she may see “small garri” to drink with her children. When it’s time to donate, however, they overwhelm her phone with pleas.
She explained that she had just woken up to see that she had been added to 15 WhatsApp groups to gather monetary donations for colleagues.
George pointed out that most of the people they are requesting donations for also never called her for jobs. She then warned that no one should add her to such groups again, pointing out that when she was experiencing difficulties, nobody cared.
This comes as celebrities in Nollywood gathered donations for ailing actors John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu, and Amaechi Muonagor, after both cried out for assistance.

Gistlover recalls Nollywood veteran actor, John Ikechukwu Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu and his family took to social media to appeal to well-meaning Nigerians and Non-Nigerians for help amid this trying time of his.
The actor who spoke from a hospital bed called for financial support and prayers.
He noted that the doctor recently said the last option (if other means of tackling his medical issue prove ineffective) would be to cut off his leg.
