The actress made the reveal during a chat with Chude Jideonwo on the WithChude show.

Adunni Ade also shared that she was noticed a decline in her career after her AMVCA nomination in 2017.

“I feel, I might be wrong, that I was outcasted out of the English [industry] I won’t say 100 percent,” Adunni Ade shared. “But I have had jobs taken away from me, colleagues who have now become big names yank my name off. Or make lies to producers and EPs on reasons why they should not give me a job.

“Deals, endorsements have been yanked off my feet because they don’t know me or they don’t like me or I am not their person because they would rather put someone that they are cool with who would give them a cut than me who truly deserves it”
