This story maybe coming late, but not many Nigerians have heard it as it was hushed last year when it took place.
It is the story of how Ramsey Nouah was given the embarrassment of his life.

It was a complete humiliation for the highly revered thespian at a movie premiere that took place last year at Camberwell area of London.
The blockbuster movie being premiered that day titled Family on Fire was produced by ace director Tade Ogidan.
The movie which features some of Nollywood’s finest actors like Ramsey Nouah,Segun Arinze,Saheed Balogun, Lanre Hassan a.k.a Mama Awero and others had at its premiere multi-award winning actor-cum-producer, Kunle Afolayan and Afro Juju creator,Sir Shina Peters who treated the guests to a non-stop entertaining performance.
The gist however has it that at the end of the movie premiere, when Ransey Nouah was about leaving the venue, despite his star status, there was no vehicle to convey him to where he lodged, and to worsen the matter, he couldn’t afford to take a cab to his lodge.
It was through the kind intervention of a close friend of his, ace movie director Simi Opeoluwa who gave him 20 pounds (N5, 000) with which he took a bus to his lodge in London.
It was not the same Ramsey who moves around Nigeria with the swagger of a star that day as he felt very ashamed of himself and left in annoyance blaming the organizers of the event for the humiliation.
So how come you didn’t hear this story last year? We were reliably informed that a lot of begging was done and some few naira notes exchanged hands to keep the dirty story under wraps.
