Social media users react to Ini Edo's comment
"I still didn’t hear how female actresses seem to be doing better than their male counterparts. At the peak of her career in the early 2000s, how could she afford a Murano truck when people claim actors were being paid 30-100k per film. I don’t know her repertoire of films but I wouldn’t put her numbers in the leagues of Ozorkwo or Osofia yet they couldn’t afford/didn’t buy such."
