Veteran Nollywood actor and director, Charles Inojie has claimed that female actresses are richer than their male counterparts because of the extra money they make from meeting up with wealthy and influential men in the society.
The thespian argued that many actresses who play minor roles in movies are richer than their male counterparts who have starred in lead roles.
Inojie stated this during the latest episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast.
He claimed that some of his politician friends sometimes contact him and ask that he hooks them up with female actresses.
The veteran argued that it is the money accumulated over time from different men that the ladies in question use in acquiring multimillion properties.
According to Inojie, “I spoke about the influx of daughters of Jezebel that came into the industry, still coming into the industry. When you see some of them you will know that they can’t even pass an audition. They will struggle with minor roles here and there. And the next thing you will hear is that she just acquired a multi-million mansion and a 2025 Range Rover.
“You will hear she just got N40 million mansion for her mum. And she got a N150 million mansion for herself. Then as a male actor you began to ask yourself, ‘What’s happening? Are they paying them extra after settling us?’ But you know that for the female folk, their streams of income are many.
“For instance, whenever some of my politician friends call me, I know they are watching African Magic. They will be like, ‘Charles, I’m watching one movie right now. There’s this particular girl. Can I have…’ That’s the multiple streams of income for them [actresses].
“Even the actresses know that regardless of whatever the filmmaker is paying them, huge amount is going to come later from people who patronise them after watching the movie. So, by the time a Senator calls here and a House of Representatives member calls there. One big business executive calls there and they put it together… Before you know, one of them would buy a multi-million naira duplex in Lekki.”
