A-List Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic and prolific producer, Charles Novia, are currently engaging in a serious war of words on Twitter over comments the latter made. Known for his scathing criticism of celebrities, Charles Novia had recently released a list of his top five actresses in Nigeria for the year 2013 and on the list, he placed Rita Dominic as number five.

This apparently did not go down well with Rita. The actress who just won the Best of Nollywood Award as the Best Supporting Actress in English for the movie 'Finding Mercy', the same film Novia said she did not perform well in and had used in rating her, came out firing from all corners, putting down the respected producer cum director.

Read Rita's fiery tweet:

"Check that Charles has not drowned himself. Best Supporting Actress English (BON Awards): Rita Dominic for 'Finding Mercy'."

Charles Novia replied her thus:

"Dear Rita Dominic: I am still alive and won't die for a long time. My opinion of your role in Finding Mercy still persists. Congrats".
