Veteran female celebrities in Nigeria, Onyeka Onwenu and Patience Ozokwor are currently on a war path following the battle over the Jonathan Goodluck’s presidential campaign funds for artists.
Sources say that the veteran actresses are not on speaking terms since the women tried outwitting themselves in getting the better part of the outgoing president’s heart.
According to a report in This Day, Onwenu, an established singer, broadcaster, actor and Director General, National Women Centre had made it her business to ensure that majority of creative practitioners and supporters channel their request to see Jonathan and/or participate in his campaign through her but Ozokwor would not wait for her to call the shots.
Ozokwor, who was also honored with MFR by the president, had found a way of getting into the Villa and meeting with the president without the assistance of Onwenu’s ministry or person and this was said to have not gone down well with the singer.
While the report further alleged that Onwenu and Ozokwor openly abused themselves and called each other names over the bad blood created, the two are said to have maintained a far distance from each other at events.
Interestingly, the two were spotted at the Africa Magic Igbolaunch in Enugu and both celebrities gave a performance to thrill the guests at the launch.
While Ozokwor had a performance with John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, Onwenu had her performance alongside Chidinma Ekile.
