Nigerian actress Linda Osifo has explained how women in the entertainment industry make more money than their male counterparts.
The film star made the revelation in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbin Minds. Osifo spoke about her acting career and other issues affecting Nollywood in the interview.
The Edo-state-born said women are more positioned to get gigs outside the movie landscape such as advertising for skincare and clothing brands.
“As a woman, I’ve more options to get jobs than a man, I can advertise hair, shoes, clothes. I don’t think a man can really do that because we have more women population than men.

So a woman gets more jobs that would create more avenues to make money for her. For instance, I’m a brand ambassador for skincare brands and that’s an industry where most men are unable to conquer because who’ll be their customers?
Therefore, women have more opportunities to make money, that’s the way I see it. Is that why women succeed more than men in Nollywood? I don’t know but that’s how I see it.” She said.
According to her, the controversies that often erupt when female actors record success are based on the deeply-rooted misogyny.
“We have this mindset that most women cannot succeed. In my case, I rejoice with my family whenever I achieve something and notice negative comments on social media,” she added.
“I got to know people feel that most women can’t do it themselves and that’s a problem because there are many women who can.” she added.
