Rita Dominic calls out those that blacklisted her in Nollywood

Actress and producer, Rita Dominic, has called out those that blacklisted in the industry, but added that that act actually made her become a producer today.

She made this revelation as a guest on the Phantom Xtraordinaire Show hosted by a former BBNaija contestant, Tobi Bakre.

Recalling a low moment in her career, she said, “At some point in my career, I wanted to evolve and do different things. But the people I used to work with then couldn’t be bothered, so I wasn’t getting work. I was blacklisted silently. Back then, there was a major blacklisting (of some actors). However, mine was silent. That was actually one of the things that made me start producing movies.”

The ‘76 actress also noted that she had always wanted to explore other aspects of filmmaking, aside from acting. She said, “I am still acting but I always knew I would go behind the cameras and produce my own films. I have always been interested in different aspects of filmmaking. So, when it was time to form a production company, it was no-brainer because it was something I had planned to do.”

Kemi Filani would recall that the popular filmmaker recently took to social media to lament about the country’s high rate of insecurity in her home town, Imo State and Nigeria in general.

It is no longer news that the rate of insecurity over the past few months has been on the increase, with kidnapping and banditry being the order of the day.

Rita Dominic, who is obviously not pleased with the development, took to her official Twitter account, stating clearly that the country is slipping into anarchy.

According to her, elected leaders should work harder to stop the tension going around the country.

She wrote: ”I am afraid that we are watching Nigeria slip into anarchy. It is surreal. Our elected officials need to work harder to douse the tension in the country. We need peace to reign. Harassing and killing innocent citizens can never solve anything.”
