Nollywood actress and screenwriter, Ruth Kadiri, has fired back at movie producer, Pascal Atuma, for his claims that one has to be a prostitute to be successful in the movie industry.

Pascal had in an interview with TheCable online said, “If you are not a full time or semi-prostitute, you will not make it in Nollywood.

“Our ladies are using what they have to get what they want. Even some of the guys who can use their a** are the ones making it in Nollywood.

The Black Men Rock actress has, however, moved to counter his claims, saying she doesn’t sleep with men for money or for promotion in the movie industry.

“A lot of us work too hard to be placed into a general category and insulted by a practitioner Mr. Pascal I am not a prostitute.

“I do not sleep with men for money or lifestyle… I feel offended. I am an ACTRESS and a PRODUCER I am successful and I am not a prostitute. SIR. If u have nothing to say pls don’t grant interviews, slamming us all and generalizing based on the lifestyle of few is very wrong,” she fired back.

Ruth also told Pascal to stop granting interviews if he has nothing to say, as it is wrong to generalise because of the action of a few.

Ruth ventured into the Nollywood in the movie named Boys Cot and since then has featured in over fifty movies to her credit.

As a screenwriter, the 30-year-old has written and co-written several movies some of which include Matters Arising, Heart of a Fighter, Ladies Men, Sincerity, First Class, and Over the Edge.

She went on to produce films such as Matters Arising, Over the Edge, Somebody Lied and her latest work Memory Lane which deals with deceit.
