Why Nollywood Actresses Make More Money Than Actors – Actress, Linda Osifo Reveals
Actress, Linda Osifo has placed her two cents on the claim by some persons that Nollywood actresses are more successful than their male colleagues.
Linda Osifo who was a guest on ‘Rubbin Minds’ show hosted by popular media personality, Ebuka Obi Uchendu revealed that women make more money in their careers as famed actress because they are open to more avenues where they can make extra income.
According to her, different brands from wigs, clothing, skincare and others associate themselves to these actresses for ambassadorial deals and she pointed out that these are opportunities which are rarely made available to the actors.
“As a woman compared to a man I have more options to get more jobs than a man. I can advertise hair, wigs, shoes and a wide range of clothes from brands which most men cannot. The ratio of men to women is 1:3 which makes the market wider for us.
“I’ve become a brand ambassador to skincare brands and that’s an industry that men don’t dominate and conquer so this is how women are more successful. Women have more opportunities to make money.”
