Toyin Abraham Claps Back At RuggedMan For Implying Only Women Make Money In Nollywood

Popular Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham Ajeyemi, has taken to Instagram to assert that success in the Nigerian film industry is not gender-based.

Over the weekend rapper Ruggedman in a tweet claimed that women in Nollywood seem more successful than their male counterparts.

“My male actors in Nollywood what’s going on? It’s just the females that are buying cars and building houses left and right. I wanted to come into Nollywood but at this rate, I am not coming again.” Ruggedman tweeted.

In a post on February 8th, Toyin Abraham stated that women in Nollywood are making their money legitimately from their craft. She also advised that social media users stop attributing a woman’s success to her s*xual prowess.

Toyin Abraham said:

“I saw the social media post made by respected rapper, Ruggedman about women making more money and doing well, better than men.”Toyin Abraham Reveals Actresses Make Legit Money In Nollywood

“I read between the lines and saw what Ruggedman implied. It is a little bit sad that many people on social media leeched on it with many derogatory comments about women especially those of us in Nollywood. It is important that I put this out there that many women make money and make good money legitimately. I know actresses who charge two million, three million and five million in this Nollywood.”

“I get paid in millions of naira for gigs. As a matter of fact, I just paid for a very good car worth millions of naira and at the same time, I know a lot of men in Nollywood who are doing extraordinarily well and paid in millions.

The fact that most of these men choose not to make noise on social media do not in any way mean that they are second class citizens in this industry.


We need to stop attributing every woman’s success to her s****l prowess with men. Women deserve the success they have as much as men without attributing it to their s*xuality. Nollywood women like Bimbo Ademoye, Nancy Isime, Kehinde Bankole, Inidima Okojie , Sharon Ooja, Bisola Aiyeola, are getting paid in millions.”


She went on to add that other creatives in the industry make good money as well.


“Even scriptwriters that are not in the limelight are getting paid in millions. It is disparaging to put the successes of these women within the box of their s*xuality. A lot of women are doing great things legitimately. I am one of them and so also are many other women in other industries, not just the entertainment industry. A woman is more than the sum total of her s*xuality.” She wrote


Toyin’s post comes a few days after Nollywood actress Destiny Etiko was accused on Instagram that a married businessman bought her a Prado SUV.


She has debunked the rumours stating that she has never met the man who people claim is sponsoring her luxurious lifestyle and projects.
