Nigerian media personality, Latasha Ngwube has called out stand-up comedian, Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome, popularly known as Ali Baba for slamming Nollywood actresses over their means of income.
Recall that Ali Baba attacked actresses over their means of livelihood aside acting, asking them how many movies they have acted for them to be able to afford a millionaire house.
To buttress his point, the comedian who said he is tempted to mention names, cited an example of an actress he met in Dubai who was sponsored to lounge in Dubai and later came online to make it seem like she paid for the hotel expenses.
Reacting Latasha Ngwube said Ali Baba is not the person best suited to take on this topic because it is beneath him and smacks of sexism.
Speaking further, Latasha urged him to focus on men as well because there are many male actors who are also doing the “wrong things” and engaging in illicit sexual activity with (older) women for pay.
In a now deleted post, she wrote:
”With all due respect Uncle Ali, I don’t think you’re the person best suited to take on this topic. I think it’s beneath you and smacks of sexism. There are many male actors who are also doing the “wrong things” and engaged in illicit sexual activity with (older) women for pay and even other senior men. Your approach sounds like an attack on women when we should be focused on all genders and the pressures they put men and women under with their deceptive lifestyle. P.s. even those you identified that do business, it’s still not guaranteed that their ways are pure.”
