Actress Rita Dominic- ‘Why I Was Banned From Nollywood’

Veteran Nollywood
actress, Rita Dominic has revealed the reason she was banned from

The actress who newly got
married explained that Nollywood silently banned her and stopped her from
getting work because she was headstrong and bent on changing things.

She explained that she wanted
a structure to be put in place back then so that they could grow in their
careers. However, this did not sit well with some people in the industry and
they stopped giving her movie roles.

The actress stated this during
an interview with Chude Jidenowo.

Her words: “So let me tell you
something, I don’t know if I’ve said this publicly. Many years ago, we worked a
lot with the marketers and they weren’t used to talking to management, they
were used to easy access, direct access to us. So I started working with a
manager which is my business partner Mildred because she manages my career as
well and it was a challenge.

“But I was bent on changing
things at least for myself cuz I felt like we needed some sort of structure if
we wanted to grow if we wanted this to go further or advance our careers, we
needed to start letting them understand that we have management.

“So obviously, they didn’t
like it but they didn’t… let me put it this way: I think they gave me a silent
ban without saying anything. I used to trickle down certain things that they
would say, a few of them, and I can understand.

“You know, people don’t like
change sometimes, especially when it’s been the same thing for so long and it
has worked for you. I didn’t get work for a long time!

“Before then, Mildred and I
had been talking. She had already started producing and we had toyed with the
idea of forming a company together and shooting productions and adverts. So
when that (ban) lingered for a while, I said you know what? Let’s go ahead with
this thing let’s produce content.

“That’s how I was put on this
other trajectory and I started producing. I did my first film, ‘The Meeting’
and I wasn’t going to do the role but we ended up doing it and The Meeting
became very successful. So the (ban) in a way was a blessing. Sometimes, the
powers that be (the universe) may be moving you in a direction you don’t want
because you want things to happen in a certain way. But it might actually let
you achieve the same goal through a different route.”
