I’m A No-Nonsense Man – Antar Laniyan On Sexual Delinquency


Antar Laniyan is totally different because of his strict nature whenever he’s handling his business

Amidst growing sexual harassment allegations against Nollywood movie producers, directors and actors, veteran filmmaker Antar Laniyan has declared himself clean and will never be caught in any sexual misconduct.

Recently, filmmaker Yomi Fabiyi and actor Yemi Solade were accused of demanding sex in exchange for movie roles, but Antar Laniyan is totally different because of his strict nature whenever he’s handling his business.

Speaking to Punch, he noted that; “If you are disciplined and you don’t put romance with women first as an actor, you would go far. If you believe that as an actor, you don’t need women all around you, then you would remain relevant because you would concentrate on your craft.

“I directed ‘SuperStory’ for about 10 years but no woman entered my room in the camp. You can ask Wale Adenugahimself. There were amorous advances from women but I shunned them. I am feared while on set. As a lady, you cannot see me and have the courage to approach me with your amorous advances. People would even tell you not to try it with me; they would advise the ladies not to wink at me because I would just slap them.

“It is not that I am wicked but I want my cast and crew members to do what is expected of them. You don’t have to give me anything to gain what you do not deserve. Use your talent and let me acknowledge that you are good at your work. You don’t have to bribe me with your body.

“When I am working, I let discipline guide me. I don’t care if you are befriending the producer; but as a director, I want a disciplined actor in front of me. I do not go to the location to wine and dine; instead I go to work. When it comes to working, I am like a man that goes to the war front with the mindset of winning the war.

“If I don’t face my work squarely, it is the same people that are commending me that would condemn me and I don’t want that. I want to be an evergreen actor. Look at the likes of Oga Belloand Prince Jide Kosoko, they started in 1964 and they are still relevant today. At the time they started, I was just a year old.”


Man Dumps Wife Just Days After Wedding After Seeing Her Without Makeup for the First Time

An Arab bride has been dumped by her husband just a few days after their marriage.
The woman was reportedly dumped by her husband after he saw her with no make-up.
According to Gulf News, this revelation was made by a psychologist, Dr Abdul Aziz Asaf, who counselled the unidentified woman.
The doctor said the 34-year-old Arab groom divorced his 28-year-old bride because the husband believed she did not look as pretty as before the wedding and accused her of deceiving him by using so many cosmetics, including fake eyelashes.
Dr Abdul Aziz Asaf, consultant psychologist revealed that his clinic received a request from the woman to help her overcome her psychological suffering after her divorce.
Dr Asaf did not reveal the woman’s identity for reasons of confidentiality.
Gulf News reports that the groom took his bride to Al Mamzar Beach for a leisurely swim but the outing turned tragic when her face became wet and her makeup reportedly washed away.
The groom said he could not recognise his wife after the make-up was gone.
The bride wore artificial eyelashes and had undergone cosmetic surgeries before the marriage.
The couple’s engagement lasted for six months.
Dr Asaf said the bride told him that she intended to tell her husband the truth about her but it was too late.
“The groom immediately divorced his bride and refused any attempt to reunite them again,” Dr Asaf said.
