The last 6 months have been highly competitive in the movie industry. As most of our A-list stars have been acquiring exotic cars and new houses almost on a weekly basis.
The rate at which they have been acquiring these items of property is so high that many fans have started asking questions. If truly acting is giving these stars so much money, why then that only these actresses are acquiring houses and buying exotic cars.
Popular music star, Ruggedman, was among the people who question the actress’s achievements lately. In his post on Instagram: “Only women in Nollywood industry own and buy exotic cars, while the men live like second class citizens”.
And star actress was quick to answer him.
According to her, many actresses make much money enough for them to afford the lifestyle they portray as many of them charge millions to feature in movies. Also, he said that she could mention several men in the industry who are paid in millions as well but they have chosen to live a low-key lifestyle and not post their luxuries on social media. He advised that people should stop attributing every woman’s success to her sexual prowess, adding that they work really hard to afford the lifestyle that they live.
