Nollywood actress and popular TV host, Nancy Isime in a lengthy Instagram post, responded to claims of dating a married man.
Controversial IG blogger, Gistlovers had accused the show host of having amorous ties with Micheal Dion-Goli who in turn sponsored her trip to Istanbul, Turkey.
Other actresses such as Nuella Njubigbo, Onyi Alex, and reality star, Nengi Hampson Rebecca were also called out alongside Nancy as Gistlovers claimed that the pressure they mounted on Michael’s wife, caused her to exit her matrimonial home.
Reacting to all these, Nancy Isime debunked the accusations and in turn, spoke about the erroneous belief that every successful woman is being sponsored or backed by a man.
Nancy advised women aspiring to be successful to brace up and come to terms with the sad fact that the tag ‘Ashawo’ (sex worker) might be added to their names.
“If you’re a Nigerian Woman with plans to be successful,” Nancy said, “Please add these names to your plans so it doesn’t surprise you when it happens ‘Ashawo, Olosho’ especially if you decide to be an Actress it’s an automatic naming ceremony if you like be virgin!” Nancy said.
Speaking further about the allegations, Nancy said: “I knew the ‘breaking news’ was coming. There’s been too much positive news about me online, not everyone likes that. Once your name drives traffic, the propaganda begins with or without evidence.
“But listen, I refuse to be bullied by patriarchy! Sad part is I haven’t even scratched surface yet. God just started with me.”
She added: “10 years from now, we’ll look back at a time where female entrepreneurs are referred to as Prostitutes unprovoked and laugh. Until then, we go dey succeed they go.”
