Why women in Nollywood have more money than men – Actress, Linda Osifo reveals

Nollywood actress, Linda Osifo has opined why most women in the movie industry are more successful than their male colleagues.

When asked why women do better, than their male counterparts in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbing Minds, she said there are so many more avenues for women to make money than men.

Linda said, “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.”

The 29-year-old actress said the mentality of the society that a woman can’t make it on her own is the reason for the rumors that most actresses have illicit affairs.

“I’ve come to understand that society has the mindset that most women can’t succeed on their own. It’s a big problem because there are many women who are doing so much for themselves,” she added.

“The more people on social media platforms, the more you can market to them but at the end of the day talent sustains success,” she said.
