“Top Grossing Movies In The Last Three To Five Years Were Made By Female Producers” Nigeria Writer Kemi Yesufu Slams Ruggedman.
Popular Nigerian writer Kemi Yeusfu has called out Nigerian musician Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, popularly known as Ruggedman, for questioning the success of female actors in the Nollywood movie industry.
A few days ago, after Nollywood actress destiny Etiko shared photos of her brand new Prado SUV, she got lots of backlash from people saying she sleeps her way to get the car.
Well, Ruggedman used that as an opportunity to react to why Nollywood female actors, making more money than male actors.
Taking to his Twitter page, Ruggedman posted;
”My male actors in Nollywood, what’s going on? It’s just the females that are buying cars and building houses left and right. I wanted to come into Nollywood, but at this rate, I am not coming again.”
Kemi Yeusfu, upon seeing his tweet, has now responded to him. The writer took to her Facebook page to slam Ruggedman, stating that female artists’ success shouldn’t be in doubt, as in the last three to five years, most of the top-grossing movies that made waves were produced by females.
”A glance at the top-grossing movies in the last three to five years will show how female producers are leading in Nollywood. But as usual, a washed-up musician overlooks women’s positive contribution and has ignited a debate to demonize actresses and women by extension further.
You can’t even talk about Nollywood’s success without speaking of how female faces sold some of the biggest movies and have now gone behind the camera to create blockbusters.
But a failed, broke, and dumb musician is instigating people against actresses with his stupid post, and those who can’t think will join the nonsense talk for innocent women in a country where sex is a currency frequently demanded from women.”
