Nigerian actress and TV host, Nancy Isime is tired of people attributing success of every woman to prostitution.
Recall, the media personality was recently accused by a popular blogger of having an affair with a married man.
Reacting to the allegation, she revealed that the married man in question was a sponsor of the season 3 edition of her show and nothing more.
Later on, she took to her Instagram stories to refute the claims stating that every woman who plans to be successful, especially actresses would “automatically” earn names such as “Ashawo, olosho (prostitute)”
“If you’re a Nigerian woman with plans to be successful. Please add these names to your plans so it doesn’t surprise you when it happens. “Ashawo, Olosho” Especially if you decide to be an Actress its an automatic naming ceremony if you like be virgin!” she wrote.
“I knew the breaking news was coming, there’s been too much positive news about me online, not everybody likes that, once your name drives traffic the propaganda begins with or without evidence. But listen, I refuse to be bullied by patriarchy,” she added.
The actress further challenged the blogger to produce “concrete proof” of the affair with the UK based businessman.
“Like I said, since we cannot sue a faceless account, we at least deserve concrete proof of the allegations laid. Dig it up let’s see, don’t just resort to calling names and try to bully me into silence,” she wrote.
