Nollywood actress, Linda Osifo has revealed why the female actresses appear to be more successful than their male counterpart in the industry.
The actress via an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbin’ Minds disclosed that ambassadorial deals and also representing variety of brands makes the women have an edge over the men in Nollywood.
“As a woman compared to a man I have more options to get more jobs than a man. I can advertise hair, wigs, shoes and a wide range of clothes from brands which most men cannot. The ratio of men to women is 1:3 which makes the market wider for us,”
“I’ve become a brand ambassador to skincare brands and that’s an industry that men don’t dominate and conquer so this is how women are more successful. Women have more opportunities to make money.”
This argument is coming following conversations that actresses turn to several means to afford their flamboyant lifestyle as working in the industry is not as lucrative. Actresses like Toyin Abraham, have tried to dispel the notion.
Recall that in February, Abraham shared an Instagram post revealing that some actresses charge up to five million Naira to feature in films.
