Exclusive: Beware of Asewo men in Nigeria - Ini Edo warns

Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, who was appointed the Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor on Culture And Tourism by Udom Gabriel Emmanuel has expressed her concerns at the rate at which men of nowadays jump from one relationship to another for financial gains.

Hear her: "Men of these days are not what pose to be. But the issues are not addressed. Nobody is talking about it. So we ( Uche Jombo and I) took that up and made it the theme of our new movie.

Ironically, prostitution has reduced drastically. Young girls now go into makeup, hair making, creams, and different kinds of small scale businesses. They now hustle more to make a living but I can't say same for men. I'm sorry but that's the truth. Some men their jobs is to move around from one woman to another for money. It's like a full time job for them and nobody is addressing that issue. Don't get mW wrong, not all men, but some of them,' she laments to Goldenpearlmedia

When asked why does more of film production these days, giving acting a break, the dark skinned movie veteran said, " I'm one of the first actors who started film production in Nigeria and also one of the first that took their movies to cinema. If you can remember I'll Take My Chances, I did it with Emem Isong. The movie gave birth to a new actor; Bryan Okwara. It's my relieve. A way I give back to the industry. I had to tilt to production of movies to effect the changes I had always wanted to see in the industry. I'm glad I was part of the huge changes we are experiencing now. Another film, Knocking On Heavens Door, I made sure we used new faces. That was how Adesua Etomi and Blossom Chukwujekwu came into acting.
Aside that, If I am passionate about a story, I don't mind the money been paid, I go for the job. I'm not particular about money but the story or lessons behind the film," she added.
