Ubi Franklin, Nigerian music executive, and Kate Henshaw, the actress, have engaged in a war of words over the death of Sylvester Oromoni Jnr.
Oromoni, the 12-year-old student of Dowen College, died a few days ago after he was allegedly attacked by “some senior colleagues” for refusing to join a cult group.
But the school had dismissed the claim, alleging that he only sustained injuries while playing football with his colleagues.
The drama between the two celebrities started on Friday when Franklin took to his Twitter page to call out some of his fellow colleagues for allegedly remaining silent over the incident.
In the post, the entrepreneur had claimed that the silence was because they are close to the school’s owner.
It is understood that social media users had tagged Kate and other celebrities yet to comment at the time of Franklin’s post.
Apparently cheesed off, the actress had hit back at Franklin in a video shared via her Instagram page on Saturday.
The film star had described the entrepreneur as “a wannabe blogger and clout chaser” while also accusing him of being hypocritical about the incident.
“You people just foam at the mouth and call names for what? You choose when and not to speak out. I choose to speak out every time and it is not for you to tell me and tag me to some meaningless post,” she said.
“I also heard a clout-chasing wannabe blogger saying ‘I’m scrolling through celebrity pages’…”
After the video, Franklin had asked why the actress did not mention his name directly in her video clip.
“Make she mention my name,” he wrote while Kate swiftly replied “this is me here, stop positioning yourself on news info that has my name on it.”
This is me here!!!
Stop positioning yourself on news info that has my name on it ..

The entrepreneur then said the actress was “forever a bully” while Kate also replied “forever a bully. Forever a blackmailer.”

In a follow-up post, the music executive wrote: “listen, if you never liked me and use that as an attack. I no kukuma need you for anything. I am fighting for justice. If you want disrespect, you shall be served. I know is you are close to the owner of the school…
“You have in the past weighed in on issues like this, yes. But I wasn’t referring to you but close pals of the school owners and that was spelt out clearly.”
