Nollywood top actress/producer, Omoni Oboli, has channeled her inner ‘area boy’ after she got tired of ‘settling’ Lagos area boys on set of a project she’s filming.
The actress had appealed to the Lagos state governor some weeks back over similar issues when dare-devil area boys kept demanding ‘settlements’ from her in batches until she got tired of doing so.
Now, on a different location in the ‘centre of excellence’, the actress was captured on camera confronting some of the area boys with some proper ‘tout’ attitude on display.

What filmmakers in Nigeria go through everyday! ? Some days, you cry, some days you keep quiet and pray, some days you turn to a tout as well ? Nobody has monopoly of craze! ? After paying one faction, another comes! It never ends! We are still begging @akinwunmiambode Help my industry. Protect us from these touts who think it’s ‘their’ money. #GodBlessNigeria #YouCantBreakMe. Thanks to my behind the scenes guy who captured most of the fights everyday. I have loads of videos ?? Still we rise #SomethingMAJORIsComing #OkaforsLaw #Anticipate
It must be noted that her experience is not a new phenomenon as all producers encounter and manage similar situation regularly. It remains to be seen if the Lagos state governor would listen to her clarion call, however.
