Movie director and actor, Francis Atuma, has earned the ire of Nollywood actors after he said in an interview that “you can’t make it in Nollywood if you’re not a prostitute or homosexual“.
Actress Ruth Kadiri has replied the director and warned him to quit generalizing. She stated clearly that she’s not a prostitute, adding that she and a lot of other actors work extremely hard to earn their keep.
She wrote: “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”
