Famous super-talented Nollywood actress cum producer, Rita Dominic has revealed on a show how she was blacklisted in the Nigerian movie industry, during a phase in her life when she was trying to evolve but the actress is glad this happened to her because it helped pushed her to become a producer her self.
The beauty ever graceful Rita Dominic made this revelation as a guest on the Phantom Xtraordinaire Show hosted by a former BBNaija contestant, Tobi Bakre. Recalling a low moment in her career, she said, “At some point in my career, I wanted to evolve and do different things. But the people I used to work with then couldn’t be bothered, so I wasn’t getting work. I was blacklisted silently. Back then, there was a major blacklisting (of some actors). However, mine was silent. That was actually one of the things that made me start producing movies.”
