Annie Idibia, the Nollywood actress, and Wisdom Macaulay, her elder brother, are at odds with each other.
Wisdom put out a video on Wednesday where he made some allegations against Annie while disowning her as a sister.
He claimed Annie introduced him to hard drugs, enslaved him, and refused to pay him when he worked for her.
“I’m crying out for help at this moment because my life is been threatened. I have been working with my sister for some time but she would never pay me my dues,” he said in the Instagram video.
“She would rather send me N20,000 or N30,000; turn me to her slave and she can decide when she is angry to end it. Some weeks back, her husband sent me some money that I have been begging him for years.

“The money wasn’t so much but I used it to settle my home. I have a wife from Imo state and I am yet to pay her bride price because I don’t have money.
“Annie introduced me to drugs, hard drugs, Annie takes drugs, she is a drug addict, she takes it every day, she is so violent, she doesn’t have peace with anyone, she fights everybody.
“I wasn’t around for 2 weeks and when I came back, she took everything from me. Annie lied in her story that I beat her in her husband’s house, how can I do that? Annie insults my wife, she insults everybody.
“I begged for her to give me money to buy a car so I can use it for Uber yet she refused, she doesn’t want me to stand on my feet. Today, she drove me out of her house and sent boys to waylay me when I took her car.
“Now my life is at risk. Annie is ill-tempered. I want to announce the actress Annie Idibia has seized to be [my] friend, family, sister. Don’t DM me about her. I have nothing connected with Annie or that brand whatsoever.”
In her now-deleted posts on Instagram, Annie accused her brother of being irresponsible.
She said their rift started after she refused to make him her manager, as she wasn’t comfortable with that.
Annie claimed that she has been responsible for the upkeep of her brother, his wife, and three kids.
The actress also alleged that her brother had threatened to kill himself for petty reasons several times.
She urged him to stop feeling entitled to her money and leave the Idibia family alone.
“Since we grew up, have you ever paid rent your entire life? You live in a 3 bedroom flat fully furnished with everything you need. You have 3 kids. Have you ever paid their school fees since they were born?” she asked.
“You’re way too irresponsible because I don’t have the heart to watch your kids go hungry. Keep blackmailing me that you will kill yourself. Why do you want to destroy this Lil career I worked so hard to make?
“I said you can’t be my manager. I have so many voice notes from your wife. I won’t disgrace you and put it out.”
The new dispute comes just after Annie’s marital crisis with 2baba, her musician husband, was finally settled.
