Veteran Nollywood actor Yinka Quadri has seemingly addressed the ‘drama’ that went down at his party between Madam Saje and Fali Werepe.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls Yinka Quadri’s veteran colleagues, Fausat Balogun, known as Madam Saje and Modupe Johnson, otherwise known as Fali Werepe, threw shades at his 63rd birthday party.
The actresses had almost clashed at Yinka Quadri’s 63rd surprise birthday party. The drama started when the Fali Werepe countered Madam Saje’s statement at the star-studded party.
A video that found it’s way online captured Madam Saje shading her colleague during her speech at the party.
Madam Saje, who claimed she had known the celebrant for nearly 50 years, got an exclamatory response from Fali Werepe, who screamed to counter the statement. Madam Saje, who saw the reaction as an insult, claimed she is a senior to Fali Werepe in the Nollywood industry. She said:
“Fali, I senior you in this profession – let’s say it in public, I don’t talk too much, I am your Oga”.
Fali Werepe, who seemed not to bear any grudge against Madam Saje said she only called attention to her exaggeration. Fali responded:
“When she said she has been with Yinka for over 50 years, I shouted ahhhhh, and I am not the only one who shouted ahhhh. People know when we started filming, but we haven’t been in the industry for 50 years. Me and Abeni are friends, and we can’t fight, but we haven’t been in the industry for 50 years”.
Following this drama, Yinka Quadri shared a photo of himself at an event, accompanied by his friends. The veteran actor noted that friendship is not about who came first but about those who came and never left. He wrote:
Friendship isn’t about who came first.. It’s about who came and never left… Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.
