ALS Ice bucket challenge is not your business; face Ebola!- Charles Novia
Charles Novia, Nollywood director has condemned the act of Nigerian celebrities trying to imitate the international celebrities by doing the ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a disease that affects the nerves cells in the brain and spinal cord) Ice Bucket Challenge that is currently trending.
Celebrities like, Emmanuel Adebayor, Genevieve Nnaji, Don Jazzy, Iyanya, Ice Prince and few others have turned up for the Ice water challenge and Charles Novia have called them out to mind their business and face Ebola issue.
According to him, Nigerian celebrities just want to trend on what the foreigners do for a good cause. He said the disease, ALS, doesn’t affect Nigeria much, but Ebola does and none of the Nigeria celebrities have posted pictures with sanitizers or show they wash their hands to help spread the awareness.
“Na ALS wey be slow killer and nor even affect una people much n aim una dey pour iceless water for una body? To prove wetin? Say una dey baff? Really! Must you do it because it is trending? If you must follow USA lead, then come together for Ebola. Dove tail on that.” He said.
Do you think he is right?
