- Actress Toyin Abraham has written an open letter to singer Ruggedman
- The actress said many of her colleagues are earning legitimately from their career
- Toyin urged people to stop making snide remarks about the success of actresses
Actress Toyin Abraham has responded to the statement of singer Ruggedman about Nollywood women.
Ruggedman had asked why it was only actresses buying cars in the industry after Destiny Etiko shared the news about her new ride.
Reacting to the question, Toyin stated that there are many actresses that charge many millions of naira to be featured in a movie.
According to her, she just paid millions of naira for a car which is yet to be delivered to her.
"It is important that I put this out there that many women make money and make good money legitimately. I know actresses who charge 2 million, 3 million, and 5 million in this Nollywood. I get paid in millions of naira for gigs. As a matter of fact, I just paid for a very good car worth millions of Naira and at the same time, I know a lot of men in Nollywood who are doing extraordinarily well and paid in millions.
"The fact that most of these men choose not to make noise on social media do not in any way mean that they are second class citizens in this industry. We need to stop attributing every woman’s success to her s*xual prowess with men, women deserve the success they have as much as men without attributing it to their s*xuality."
