Nollywood Actress, Rita Dominic has shared the story of how she was blacklisted in Nollywood.
She said she was blacklisted for trying to evolve in the movie industry because she wanted another thing but many didn’t understand her.
She said tho the blacklisting of some where known, hers was very much silent.
She said; “I always knew that I would like to go behind the camera and produce my own film. When it was time to form a production company that I co-own, it was a no-brainer because I had always wanted to do it,”
“At some point in my career, I wanted to evolve and do different things. The people we used to work with a lot then didn’t understand that. More like they couldn’t be bothered. So I wasn’t getting work. I was blacklisted silently.
“Back then, there was a major blacklisting [of some actors]. Some of them got a lot of flack for it. However, mine was silent and I knew. That was actually one of the things that made me start producing movies. I went on to form the Audrey Silva Company with my business partner and we then produced ‘The Meeting’.
