Aluko Gold, often known in showbiz as Diva Gold, is an actress and sketch writer who has spoken out about the popular belief that her voluptuous shape has helped her land movie roles.
She addressed this topic in an interview with the Sunday Scoop, claiming that it is God’s grace, as well as her acting abilities, that have kept her relevant in the entertainment industry.
She stated in her submission:
“I will say it’s God’s grace actually, because there are so many women with bigger curves, and there are also women with no curves who have made it far. So, I will say it’s my acting skills and God’s grace that have paved the way and are still paving the way for my growth.
My experience as a skit maker is interesting because it’s what I love doing. However, it can be challenging sometimes, most especially financially, in aspects of production cost, location cost, when one has to leave the location early because it has been booked by another, and one still has to finish up with the scenes one came to act, which most times makes me shoot till midnight. Then, people just see the outcome and think it is easy. Acting too has its own challenges, but I love my job.”
