Nigerian actors under the aegis of the Actors Guild of Nigeria have knocked the release of the nude videos of actress, Empress Njamah.
Recall that the estranged fiancé of the Nollywood actress, George Wade, allegedly shared the nude video of the actress.
It was reported that Wade created a WhatsApp group where he added a number of people and began posting naked videos he took of the actress in her house, including innocent videos of her taking her bath.
Wade has, however, distanced himself from the report as he claimed he was not responsible for the dispersal of the nude videos.
