In a post shared on the microblogging platform, Ka3na claimed that most Nollywood producers and actors had become brand influencers; hence there are no latest Nigerian movies on Netflix.

Ka3na opined that many of these Nollywood stars joined brand influencing because former housemates of the BBNaija show opened their eyes to know that brand influencing is a lucrative business.

She added that brand influencing is not a competition as she urged Nollywood producers and actors to make good movies for the Christmas holiday.

She wrote: Most Nollywood movie producers/actors have become brand influencers. No latest Nigerian movies on Netflix. Bbn housemates don open their eyes to influencing money. It’s not a competition. Y’all make us good holiday movies, please.

Some People Think Men Are Bankrolling My Lifestyle, Says Actress Uche Elendu

Published

on

Actress, Uche Elendu has debunked the speculations online that men are bankrolling her lifestyle.

The light skinned role interpreter said:”I don’t know why people don’t understand that women are now independent. Several times, false judgment has been made against me in that regard. Women work hard to make a name for themselves and they do not want to be swept under the carpet.

“Personally, I work so hard to be financially comfortable. But, despite my hard work, if I buy a car or a house, some people would still say, ‘Who is the man bankrolling her’? That is gender inequality and people do not understand that everybody is not the same.

“I remember that last year (October 2020 in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests) when I lost goods in my store, some persons were saying I stop crying because the alleged politician that bought it for me would stock my shop again,she stated in a recent interview.

Elendu debuted her acting career by featuring in a movie titled Fear of the Unknown.

As a result of her marriage, she took a long break from acting and this action eventually derailed and stagnated her career as an actress. In 2015 she secured the lead role in a movie titled Ada Mbano. This movie was the catalyst which re-ignited her acting career.
