Nollywood actress, Remi Oshodi popularly called Remi Surutu has opened up about the events that occurred during her infamous and messy physical fight with colleague Faithia Balogun.
Both movie stars were guests at a burial ceremony which was hosted by London-based celebrity, Bamidele Omosehin some few weeks back.
It was reported that Remi Surutu confronted Faithia Balogun. Some versions of the story claimed Surutu slapped Balogun, but the veteran actress has now recounted what really transpired at the party in an interview with CityPeople.
“Faithia is so full of herself, probably because they used to deceive her, by calling her the Queen of all the Actresses, “Pelu awon tani”. I decided to confront her and deal with her at that event, because somebody needed to call her to order. And God saved her that day and thank God for the intervention of other colleagues around,” she said.
“I told her “if you move closer to me, I will break bottle on your head” When people started calling us to settle it amicably, I told them I am not ready to settle anything with her, and I don’t feel remorseful for attacking her. I have no regret at all, she’s really messing up and she needed to be put in her place.”
According to Surutu her relationship with Balogun hasn’t always been frosty.
“This is the person I took in like a sister. We were very close when she joined the industry. I can say it boldly that I was instrumental to her relationship with Saidi Balogun then. They were both living with me in Magodo. I had to send them out because they always fight, and they almost injured my mum,” she added.
“I don’t know why she suddenly grow that hatred for me and started running me down. Till date, I still cannot say what I’ve done to deserve that from her. There are so many other things she did that I can’t say here.”
Remi Surutu said her actions were carried out to put Faithia Balogun in her place.
Some reports also claim that the rift between the actresses may have triggered by the existing beef between Iyabo Ojo and Balogun.
