The task of making a Nollywood movie can be overwhelming- financially and physically.

Making a Nollywood film can also injure you - literally.

Kemi Afolabi, Ijaduade Ololade and some crew members of the new movie ‘Esan’ were beaten up by thugs over the weekend.

Kemi and Ololade were harassed by area boys while they were on set of a new movie in Ikorodu area in Lagos.

"This crazy area boys won't kill us the actors one day...this is happening right now on our movie set @ikorodu.please this has to stop help us

oooo.#saynotoactorsabuse. They injured me the director @kemiafolabi, the producer, camera man and some of the crew...please we need Nigerians to stand up for us," Azeez wrote on Instagram.

This comes after area boys tried to stab Omoni Oboli’s crew members while shooting a film last month.

I am sure one law enforcement officer just read this!
