Controversial Nollywood director, Dickson Iroegbu is presently soaked in an alleged debt mess with a Nollywood producer named Alex Eyengho.
It was reported by Vanguard that Dickson ran to Alex in January 2012 when he was allegedly broke and needed some cash to settle his house rent. He was then lent the sum of N400,000 by Alex.
But like a debtor, which some in the industry allegedly tagged him to be, he refused to pay back the money borrowed from Alex. Several efforts by Alex, as Vanguard reported, to get the money back from him have been futile as Dickson was reported to be playing the ‘Maradona’ game with someone else’s hard-earned cash.
It was also reported that Dickson allegedly gave Alex dud cheques twice. During the week, police in Aguda, Surulere, reportedly arrested Dickson after Alex reported the matter to them.
Nigeriafilms.com called Dickson to get his side of the story. He picked up his phone but didn’t say any word. A text message was then sent to his phone, which he didn’t reply as at press time.
He later called to ask why we called to get his side of the story and then hanged up the phone.

Dear Almighty Sir,
I don’t know what time it is in your area so I’ll simply say good day Sir. I’m very grateful for making me experience 2013 and I’m sorry for all my sins in 2012.
I would have promised not to sin in 2013 but I don’t want to lie because you already know my future. Please help me be a better and more successful person this year. Also protect and bless my family, friends and fans.
I hereby present some personal issues before you:
1] Will Nigeria be better this year or ever? If no I seek your approval to go and take up citizenship somewhere else but if yes be fast before they empty our treasury and our oil wells run dry.
2] Please help us with the exchange rate. Help de Naira catch up with the dollar.
3] Have you relocated Hell to Nigeria? If no, what are Boko Haram and Kidnappers doing here?
4] Do we allow GEJ do another term? If no please do something before we ‘Occupy Everywhere’.
5] Adjust the brain of our youths so that their savings will end up in bank accounts not boutiques and night clubs.
6] There are more diseases now than brands of condom available. What do we do? Urgent answer required.
7] Please is your son coming soon? We have forgotten the meaning of true love since the last time he came.
8] Please I need your BB pin if possible, I want to send you pictures and links of what pastors and government officials are doing with our money.
I guess you already know.

Ur prayer is very funny, but meaningful. May God hear us.

He wont be able to pay, bcos his rent has expired again. He needs to pay his lanlord another 400k.
If he will pay both, then he has to borrow from another source. A man who has no wife and kids is finding it tough to pay rents, what happens when he has to take care of wife, children and even in-laws? He will start robbing.

Your prayer is on point, I am standing and clapping. God will continue to bless you with good health, love and wisdom. Weldone xx

It is always easy to borrow monry but difficult to pay back.
But these nollywood producers should be above 500k now. Does it mean this thing they do is not that rewarding?
Why are the women more bouyant than the men?
It is a pity
