It is being said that no food for lazy man and as such, every individual must try to earn a decent living in every possible means. The Nollywood industry has been able to provide an avenue for many to make a living; either educated or not.
Funny enough, the make-believe industry does not select gender, but accommodates everyone. What baffles many is how actresses manage their homes and still combine acting to it.
To many female celebrities, who can't do the two together, they quit acting if their husband wants it, while some will argue that it’s not possible because the man met her while acting and as such cannot stop her, while some will say they will have to reach a mutual agreement.
Nollywood actress, Mimi Orjiekwe, once described the Nollywood industry as an industry that is very challenging, but worth the experience. She also said she would not stop acting because it is her job.
In her words, “My job is not going to be a problem. I think it is something we should learn how to handle. It becomes a problem when you devote all your attention to your job. Your children and your husband are also your job. In other words, I am not leaving acting for marriage. It is something that can work hand in hand.”
Nollywood actress Oma Iyasara, did describe actresses as people who would make good wives at their various homes but stressed that she cannot quit acting for any man, excepts he has another business plan for her that is better than acting. The list is endless.
In reality, sometimes we need to appreciate the courage of some men who got married to actresses and the marriage is still intact, with the likes of Omotola Jalade as an example.
Recently, Nollywood actress, Dakore Egbuson Akande, left fans and colleague spell bound when she disclosed that she would gladly quit acting if and when her husband asks her to do so.
This disclosure was coming on the heels of speculation that the actress had taken a leave of absence from acting, because her father in-law and her husband asked her to stop.
Dakore debunked the rumours, stating that she had to take a break from acting because something more important came along. “I fell in love. I had to give more time to my relationship to make sure I nurtured it away from the public eye, as much as I could. I took an unintended break to focus on my relationship.”
