Upcoming actor Tony Frederick spoke to Ayo Onikoyi of Vanguard recently about the dealings of some actresses in Nollywood. He said that some of them are simply prostitutes with no creativity whatsoever.
When Ayo asked him if there were truly prostitutes in Nollywood, he said, “C’mon Ayo…it’ll be ridiculous for me to say it that way…because I don’t call those prostitutes actresses.
“They are simply prostitutes, sex traders who have infiltrated the industry and made it look like it’s a pre-requisite for becoming an actress. It’s pathetic my dear.. But I know a lot of decent actresses who are doing very well.
“Prostitution is an industry on its own. I remember someone telling me that they’ve got registration…anyways it’s easy to discern that this or that lady doesn’t have it at all as regards creativity in front of the camera, you know, apart from the good looks and their general craze with public show of nudity.
But of course by their fruits, they shall be known!…it’s pretty easy to discern them. We call them gate crashers.”
