Nigerian actor, Daniel Etim-Effiong, reveals the reason more male actors come online to seek financial aid compared to the women in the industry.
He explains this in an episode of the Bad and Boujee podcast with hosts, TolaniBaj and Moet Abebe.
The actor was asked why more male actors are coming out to request crowdfunding for sickness amongst other pressing issues.
The actor believes this is owing to the patriarchal society in Nigeria which leaves women as men’s responsibility and as such men cannot stand by and do nothing when a woman is facing a challenge.
Using himself as an example, he explained that if he finished a job and got paid, his first thought is to take care of his family and sustain the home and settle outstanding bills.
However for some women, once they get paid, the money is for themselves alone to enjoy and spend, which helps them in saving more.
He also narrates how women are beautiful creatures which leaves them open to receiving gifts and other financial rewards from men who find their beauty alluring.
Men on the other hand are left to provide for themselves all the times so when they reach a breaking point, they reach out to the public for help instead.
Daniel Etim-Effiong states expressly that women hardly solve men’s issues so most men know not to ask them for help.
