Nigerian filmmaker, Mildred Okwo, has reacted to the reports that her business partner and actress, Rita Dominic, welcomed twin babies.
Naija News reports that social media on Thursday, 21st September was agog with news of Rita and her husband, Fidelis Anosike welcoming twins in the United Kingdom.
However, Mildred in a chat with newsmen debunked the news, stressing that the viral photo was taken on a movie set and posted online.
The filmmaker added that if Rita had welcomed a child, she would definitely send a press release to the media.
She said: “You see somebody on set today, and the next day they have twins; I do not understand.
“If Rita has had a child, would I not send a press release to you guys? Common, it does not make sense.
“Can you imagine? She took a picture while on a movie set. She posted a picture; she is on a movie set; maybe I should call her to find out if she has given birth.
“It is bloggers that are peddling fake news. Kindly ignore them. If she has a child, there is no way that I would not make the announcement and I will definitely not talk to bloggers.”
