This is actually not the best of times for popular Nollywood actor and producer Fred Amata as he was reportedly brought before the court for allegedly owing a year’s rent.
Amata was dragged to court by his landlord Mr. I.F Fadoyebo, for owning him N600,000, being the yearly rent for his apartment.
Fadoyebo also said his four-bedroom bungalow situated at 8, Razaq Balogun Street, Surulere was occupied by Amata illegally as he failed to pay his rent for a year. He stressed that he had served the actor a quit notice but he failed to acknowledge it.
The case has been adjourned to Tuesday, October 18, 2011 for further hearing.
Amata in his career has starred in over 39 movies and directed or produced over 20 home videos. In 2006, he starred in the Nigerian-British historical drama film ‘Amazing Grace‘. He is brother to popular actor Zack Amata and producer/director Jeta Amata.
