An actor and movie director, Pascal Atuma has addressed the success behind every actors and actress. He said Nollywood is “controlled by pi-ps” and that upcoming actors and filmmakers should not be deceived by the glamorous lifestyles they see from the outside.

He said:

“If you are not a full time or semi-prostitute, you will not make it in Nollywood,” Atuma told TheCable Lifestyle.

“Our ladies are using what they have to get what they want. Even some of the guys who can use there a** are the ones making it in Nollywood.

“I am being very real here and they make it look as if they are doing well but they are not, they are suffering.

“Let’s stop deceiving the younger ones by keeping it real. We have to let the younger ones know how it is and what it is.”

The director of ‘My American Nurse’ dared anyone to challenge him on his comment, saying he’s ready to debate a contrary opinion.

He said: “Pascal Atuma is my name and I am saying it the way it is and that’s the truth.

“If you want to challenge me on this, please come and do it on any national television in Nigeria or anywhere. I am even ready to pay for the challenge.

“The biggest boys in the industry know that I am saying the truth. I am saying the truth and there’s nothing anyone of them can do to affect my career, they can’t employ me.”

Apart from being an actor and director, Atuma is also a screenwriter and comedian.

As a director, he has helmed productions such as ‘Who Is the Man?’ and ‘Okoto the Messenger’.

He has starred in ‘Through the Glass’, ‘The Other Side of Love’, ‘Faithfulness’ and ‘Secret Past’.

Actress Ruth Kadiri has replied the director and warned him to quit generalizing. She stated clearly that she’s not a prostitute, adding that she and a lot of other actors work extremely hard to earn their keep.

She wrote:

“A lot of us work too hard to be placed into a general category and insulted by a practitioner Mr Pascal I am not a prostitute. I do not sleep with men for money or lifestyle… I feel offended. I am an ACTRESS and a PRODUCER I am successful and I am not a prostitute. SIR. If u have nothing to say pls don’t grant interviews… slamming us all and generalizing based on the lifestyle of few is very wrong”
