Actress, Toyin Abraham Ajeyemi, has reacted to the post shared on Twitter by singer, Ruggedman, in which he asked why female actors were buying cars and houses, unlike their male counterparts, IgbereTV reports.
Ruggedman had tweeted;
”My male actors in nollywood whats going on? Its just the females that are buying cars and building houses left and right. I wanted to come into nollywood but at this rate, I am not coming again”
Reacting via her Instagram page, Toyin said she understands what Ruggedman was trying to say and finds it saddening that many people seized the opportunity to say derogatory words against female actors.
The award-winning actress said she knows a lot of women who charge in millions in the film industry and that she is one of them. She stressed that people need to stop attributing the successes of women in whatever industry to her sexual prowess with men.
Her post reads;
“I saw the social media post made by respected rapper, Ruggedman about women making more money and doing well better than men.
I read between the lines and saw what Ruggedman implied. It is a little bit sad that many people on social media leeched on it with many derogatory comments about women especially those of us in Nollywood.
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 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 extra ordinarily 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 sexual prowess with men, women deserve the success they have as much as men without attributing it to their sexuality. Nollywood women like Bimbo Ademoye, Nancy Isime, Kehinde Bankole, Inidima Okojie , Sharon Ooja, Bisola Aiyeola, are getting paid in millions. Even script writers that are not in the limelight are getting paid in millions. It is disparaging to put the successes of these women within the box of their sexuality. A lot of women are doing great things legitimately. I am one of them and so also are many other women in other industries not just the entertainment industry.
A woman is more than the sum total of her sexuality.”

Sorry no vex… But, which other prowess Nigerian actresses get?
Everyone knows majority of the actresses in Nollywood are big time prostitutes including this Toyin Abraham
No be olosho work she go do when she Jam Seun egbebe (iPhone thief)
How much are they earning from their low budget movies that they will be launching new houses and cars almost on a weekly basis
As for that Destiny etiko, I think she’s just been a foolish girl for coming online to start swearing and cursing people. Everyone knows she can’t afford that particular model of car even if she acts tons of those her village movies for the next 5years
How many Nollywood actresses both married and single can come out Boldly to say that they are not doing runs ( prostitution)
Why them no succeed before them become actress if no be men especially our politicians dey sponsor.. Nollywood is just a cover up..they are just there to showcase their body for men to see and start spending..
Some men are extremely sensitive or jealous when they see women succeeding ..
Even if the women are sleeping around, what law are they breaking?
Is not the same men that are still sleeping around with them
Toyin my sister

Oh so toyin could come out and talk about this? I still remember your relationship with seun egbegbe the iPhone crooner. What do i know.

NIGERIAN GIRLS ARE USELESS!!!!!!!!!!!
