Actress Ruth Kadiri has fired back at movie director, Pascal Atuma over a statement that those who make it in the Nigerian movie industry are ‘prostitutes’.
Atuma, earlier said only those who are prostitutes make it in Nollywood as the industry is controlled by Pimps.
Reacting, Kadiri on Instagram warned Atuma to stop generalizing, noting that she’s not a prostitute.
According to Kadiri, she and a lot of other actors work extremely hard to earn a living.
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 you have nothing to say please don’t grant interviews slamming us all and generalizing based on the lifestyle of a few. It’s very wrong. Pascal Atuma.”
