Nollywood actress, Queeneth Agbor, has denied reports that popular actress, Tonto Dike slept with a movie producer to get a lead role in a movie.
Agbor, who has become one of the most talked about actresses in the film industry, said her popularity had nothing to do with her roles in movies.
In one of her interviews, the actress famous in her role in a movie, Hooked, was quoted as saying that she did not get a role in a movie that had Tonto Dikeh as lead actress, because she refused to sleep with the producer of the movie.
Several people said the statement implied that Tonto Dikeh slept with the producer of the movie in order to get the lead role.
However, Agbor, who is graduate of Microbiology from the University of Calabar, told Sunday Scoop she never said a thing like that.
According to her, “People always have something to talk about. It does not matter whether you say things that are meant to inspire people or not. People always have a way of making a mountain out of a molehill.
“I refused to respond before now because what was reported was not what I meant. I was only trying to inspire people by saying that Nollywood is not about sex for roles.
“In order to succeed, you need to know your worth and you must also be able to pray ceaselessly. I didn’t say Tonto Dikeh slept with any producer. People will keep talking and that’s their problem.”
On the popular believe that Calabar girls are husband snatchers, the Cross River-born actress said, “I don’t think we (Calabar girls) are husband snatchers, but we know how to keep a man to ourselves.
“Some men don’t like food, so you might not be able to keep him through that, but men like it when a lady is clean and of course good in bed. A Calabar girl is a combination of all.”
She, however, added that she would not mind being ‘tested’ by her man before marriage, stressing that people need to have a feel of what they would have to live with for the rest of their lives.
“You have to know your package, I am not saying just go into it anyhow but just test it. You need to know what you are going into, so you don’t start cheating on your spouse.
“Most marriages that break up are solely because of this issue. So I think it is important for you to know what you are getting into,” she concluded.
I think her statement was misconstrued.
