Yoruba Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo better known as Omoborty has spoken out on the ills in the movie industry.
The single mother of two revealed how some of her colleagues were blackl!sted from movie roles because they failed to compromise their principles with influential figures.
She disclosed that some of them experienced the embarrassment of having their children sent home from school back then because they hadn’t been offered work and couldn’t pay school fees.
However, by the grace of God, they were able to overcome those challenges and now have the freedom to choose if they still want to act or not.
“Hmmm, shall we discuss the subtle blackl!sting, where certain individuals were excluded from movie roles simply because they refused to compromise their principles with influential figures? Some of us experienced the embarrassment of having our children sent home from school back then because we weren’t being offered work and couldn’t pay school fees.
But by the Grace of God, we’ve overcome those challenges. Now, we have the freedom to choose if we still want to act or not.
Because movie making no longer dictates our livelihood or pays our bills”.
