Nancy Isime has earlier refuted the numerous claims of having romantic affairs with matrimonial men to navigate her career, she duly shared her view on how sex-related beliefs have damaged the reasoning of successful entertainers by adolescent girls who look up to them as role models.
Nancy Isime was speaking on the latest episode of the HipTV show which also featured, Ruggedman, the rapper.
Nancy Isime also said the beliefs from the Nigerian audience and Nollywood lovers that are females who are successful in the industry have already damaged the careers of the upcoming ones.
Nancy Isime on the show says: “If I do music, movies, business, or fashion right, I can make it. In countries where things work and [negative stereotypes] are not being said, it’s because their media put people on a certain pedestal,” the actress argued.
“This creates role models younger persons can look up to. There’s Forbes and Vogue that literally exalt their rich so, much that we [Africans] start to look up to white people. Our media houses can also help us out.
“I’m an actress and I don’t even need to sleep with any man for anyone to say it. This puts people in a funny place and overrates these [married] people. Let’s start to say the truth. Do not generalise.
“You make people who are younger think Nancy Isime too is sleeping around. You think you’re rubbishing Nancy but you’re putting down and damaging at least a million girls who thought they could make it by themselves.
“You’re putting them in the hands of predators who are waiting to snatch them up. They think they can’t make it without [sleeping with a married man], doing drugs, or doing yahoo (fraud). If there’s something wrong, put it out.
“But if there isn’t, don’t make stories up or generalise, at least for the young ones. It’s not just the bloggers but also people. The rich are easily stereotyped as ritualists. I’m good but it’s just something I feel has to be talked about.”
