Actress Ruth Kadiri has slammed director who said only prostitutes make it in the Nigerian movie industry.
Ruth Kadiri warned him to quit generalizing, stating clearly that she’s not a prostitute, adding that she and a lot of other actors work extremely hard to earn their keep.
“A lot of us work too hard to be placed into a general category and insulted by a practitioner Mr Pascal I am not a prostitute. I do not sleep with men for money or lifestyle… I feel offended. I am an ACTRESS and a PRODUCER I am successful and I am not a prostitute. SIR.
If u have nothing to say pls don’t grant interviews… slamming us all and generalizing based on the lifestyle of few is very wrong. pascalatuma. @bolaaduwo @thecablelifestyle”
Pascal Atuma, an actor and movie director, had earlier said one has to be “a prostitute or semi-prostitute” to be successful in the Nigerian movie industry.
He told TheCable Lifestyle that Nollywood is “controlled by pimps” and that upcoming actors and filmmakers should not be deceived by the glamorous lifestyles they see from the outside.
Pascal Atuma who directed ‘My American Nurse’ dared anyone to challenge him on his comment, saying he’s ready to debate a contrary opinion.
