Veteran actor, Saidi Balogun has just released his birthday party invite and also programme of events.
However, actress and producer, Lizzy Anjorin has accused him of not only slating his event to when she would have her film premiere, July 7, he has contracted the same performers and MCs for his occasion.
Saidi played a lead role in Lizzy’s latest work, ‘Owo Naira Bet.’
But a look at Saidi’s invite indicates he had invited King Ayinde Marshall aka Kwam 1 to the grand finale which hold on July 7.
Day 1: 4th July:
visit to accident victim @UCH and public lecture @ Theatre Art Dept. UI to discuss parallel line between MOVIE AND STAGE PERFORMANCE.
Day 2: 5th July

Meanwhile, Lizzy’s performers are King Sunny Ade and Pasuma Alabi.
MCs are not same since Saidi had contacted Gbenga Adeyinka and Derenle Edun for the 5th of July.
The duo is to appear at Lizzy’s event on the 7th of July.
Maybe, Lizzy’s fear is the fact that many would attend Saidi’s bash because of his position and work years in the industry.
But that notwithstanding, the two events are sure to cause a stir in entertainment circles.
