Men now go into relationship for money – Ini Edo lailasnews

Ini Edo, who is a Special Assistant to the Akwa Ibom State Governor on Culture and Tourism, stated that while young girls engage in one trade or the other for survival, some men move from one woman to the other for money.

Talking about her new movie with The Sun correspondent, she said;

“Men of these days are not what they used to be. But the issues are not addressed. Nobody is talking about it. That’s why 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 different kinds of small-scale businesses like makeup, hair dressing and creams making. They now hustle more to make a living but I can’t say the same thing for men. I’m sorry but that’s the truth. For some men, their job is to move around from one woman to another for money. It’s like a full time job for them and nobody is addressing the issue. Don’t get me wrong, not all men do it, but some of them.”

On why she is into movie production than acting now, Ini Edo said;

“I’m one of the first actors who started film production in Nigeria and also one of the first to take their movies to cinemas. 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 way of giving back to the industry. I had to tilt towards 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 in it. 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 being paid, I’ll go for the job. I’m not particular about money but the story or lessons behind the film.”

  1. The all say they same thing “am not passionate about the money, but message” mean while the competition on who carries they most expensive hand bag is high among them….kudos

  2. Ini your talk of prostitution being less is laughable and lacks truth. Where did you get tour statistics. The increased level of prostitution even in the corporate sector needs to be addressed as well. In this era of slay queens with no known job or source of income it shocks me to hear this from you.

    I agree that men now date for money which is equally not right but to address these issues we need to get to the source that triggered this ripple for both groups.

    We can’t addrss one without the other for both gender.

    Reorientation is highly needed with better government which is needed come 2019.

  3. men go to women for me maybe she is talking about the men who have come to her for money ,what she is saying is not the truth cos its the women who are paying men to be with for prostitution reducing,this is a fat lie,show me one girl is is into make up and petty trade here in nigeria does not have more than 2 to 3 different boyfriends??prostitution in nigeria has not reduced but they only upgraded,not all the prostitutes stay along the road sides or hotels anymore?/now u have prostitutes in all the offices and schools,some just rent a very comfortable apartment and buy themselves a good car and keep chains of men ,what do u call those ones my sister ini?????
