Rita Dominic Banned From Nollywood: Veteran Nollywood actress, Rita Dominic finally breaks silent, yo open up to the actual reason behind why she stopped acting.
According to the popular 45-year-old Nigerian actress, she was giving a silent ban, something she has kept in the dark, away from publicity for a very long time but has finally gathered the courage to spill it out.
She made this known in a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo.
Rita said that she earned her the ban because she was bent on changing things at least for herself because she felt the industry needed some sort of structure if they as actors and actors wanted to grow.
She revealed that the movie production houses normally do work with marketers who normally had direct access to them [actors and actresses] without passing under any form of proper structure which is to first of all having to contact their managers to do a proper negotiation or bidding before agreeing and looking at the way forward.
According to her, it is because directly contacting them according to her is not a proper way if they as actresses want to grow and earn more from the movie roles they play.
Rita Dominic Banned From Nollywood: So as it stands, it seemed the producers never liked her idea and decided on giving her a silent ban.
Read her full statement on this below;
“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, direct access to us. So I started working with a manager which is my business partner Mildred because she manages my career as well and it was a challenge.
But I was bent on changing things at least for myself cuz I felt like we needed some sort of structure if we wanted to grow – if we wanted this to go further or advance our careers, 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. You know, people don’t like change sometimes especially when it’s been the same thing for so long and it has worked for you. I didn’t get work for a long time!
Before then, Mildred and I had been talking. She had already started producing and we had toyed with the idea of forming a company together and shooting productions and adverts. So when that (ban) lingered for a while, I said you know what?
Let’s go ahead with this thing – let’s produce content. That’s how I was put on this other trajectory and I started producing. I did my first film, ‘The Meeting’ and I wasn’t going to do the role but we ended up doing it and The Meeting became very successful.
So the (ban) in a way was a blessing. Sometimes, the powers that be (the universe) may be moving you in a direction you don’t want because you want things to happen in a certain way. But it might actually let you achieve the same goal through a different route.”
