The actress who also happens to be the  CEO of ROK tv , narrated her ordeal as to a degrading encounter she experienced with a legal practitioner when she offered to help her relative out with getting a loan.

In the words of her mouth, she noted “Dear women, women are doing big things too!! Few weeks ago, a family member needed a guarantor for her rent and I went to the lawyer’s to sign”


“Spent over 45mins trying to convince her I can afford rent but she didn’t believe me.
Thought I was an actress whose career has refused to blow”

“She needed a proof that I am truly the Founder of ROK. Or the CEO of the studio. I Googled my name but she no gree. The agent and I begged her to do small research but she refused”


“Told her I will get CEO of IROKOTV to co sign but she said I was calling big big names. She insisted on seeing my business card. I had none. Business Card wey dem fit
write anything o!”


“I had to call a male colleague whose career is stronger than mine to help be the guarantor. She was a fan and super happy. I was sad. For her. She lives in a box. An old one”


“Today, Nollywood is arguably controlled
by women. We sign almost all cheques! But I guess I am too young and too simple to be ME. I had no entourage. I waited at the reception. I was super polite. She even asked for the name of my Grandfather’s village”


“I was nice. Yet she insisted on being a fool. Sad. The law firm called back later that night to apologise and wanted me to sign instead.
Too late”. She added
