Nollywood actress, Tracy Daniels has lamented over the embargo movie producers placed on Nigeria based actors over British-returnee acts.
Tracy Daniels who pointed out the discriminatory attitudes towards the home-based actors by some big production companies, added that though good scripts are hard to come by in recent times, however most notable production companies are only featuring what she calls “UK returnee-actors” in their movies.
When asked why she has been missing in big screens in recent times, the actress said;
“It’s so bad that the discrimination is now based on who speaks foreign accent fluently and talent is no longer the yardstick for selecting actors to feature in movies.”
Most of us who are based in the country have been ‘benched’ by the giant production companies simply because they want to cast British-trained actors to shoot Nigerian version of American superhero film, ‘Black Panther,’ she bemoaned.
Tracy Daniels also disclosed that the perception that most actresses are wayward is wrong, as there are bad people people in all careers.
“Nollywood ladies are flashy and so, people have this perception that every flashy lady sell her body for money. It happens everywhere and in every career including the banking industry, but just because we are role models, people tend to think there should be perfection in Nollywood,” she said.
The actress made headlines few months ago, after she disclosed that she was buying herself a sex doll as valentine’s day gift. The light-skinned diva, who was once married to a wealthy Indian expatriate, said the item will be a special gift to herself on the day set aside to celebrate lovers across the world.
“I want to match the duties of a sex doll with that of one’s partner and see if one is getting more or exact same service because to me love affair goes beyond sex.”
