Actress, Destiny Etiko, has asked people to stop linking her achievements to men.
The actress made the appeal in an interview with Punch. She said;
“IT IS FUNNY BECAUSE I WORK FOR MY MONEY AND I GET GOOD ENDORSEMENTS. IF IT IS EASY FOR MEN TO GIVE ONE MONEY, THEN GO AND COLLECT MONEY FROM MEN. I WORK, MAKE MY MONEY, AND SOME PEOPLE APPRECIATE ME.
I JUST GOT AN ENDORSEMENT DEAL WITH A CHINESE COMPANY. WHEN I ACHIEVE SOMETHING TOMORROW, PEOPLE WOULD SAY A MAN GAVE IT TO ME. LET THEM KEEP TALKING. EVEN IF I DON’T ACHIEVE ANYTHING, IT IS STILL THE SAME PEOPLE THAT WOULD SAY AFTER ALL THE FILMS I HAVE BEEN ACTING, I HAVE NOT DONE ANYTHING FOR MYSELF. I DON’T WANT TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.”
