One of the veteran movie actress who reigned through the 2000s was Rita Dominic. She was one of the most talented and active actress the Industry ever produced.
She bestrode the movie industry like a colossus. Nonetheless, Rita Dominic and some other colleagues were banned from acting.
Recently, she opened up to speak for the first time concerning what actually led to her ban and why Nollywood marketers clandestinely banned her from getting work.
In an interview with Chude, she was asked how she spent he 23 years in the movie industry and why she was banned.
“So let me tell you something, I don’t know if I’ve said this publicly. Many years ago we worked a lot with the marketers and they weren’t used to talking to management, they were used to easy access to us. So I started working with a manager who doubled up as my business partner Mildred because she manages my career as well and it was a challenge.” She Dominic.
“But I was bent on changing things at least for myself because I felt like we needed some sort of structure if we wanted this to go further or advance our career. We needed to start letting them understand that we have management. So obviously, they didn’t like it but they didn’t….. Let me put it this way. I think they gave me a silent ban without saying anything. I used to trickle down certain things that they would say, a few of them and I can understand,” said Dominic.
