Prominent Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, recently shared an incident where she confronted a magazine publisher responsible for spreading false information about her.
During an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, which was shared on Sunday, the actress revealed the details of her confrontation.
She recalled, “I actually remember going to one person’s office to ask him, ‘Oga, did I do something wrong?’ Because this is getting out of hand. Like every day this, every day that.
Edo continued, “He said, ‘Ini there are so many of your colleagues that if we put their stories out, people are not interested. You sell our newspaper. So if you don’t give us stories to write about you, we would find something.”
She expressed disbelief as she shared the publisher’s words, “I kid you not, that’s what the publisher of a magazine told me. ‘So if I can’t find something on you… if I put you on my cover today, I sell out and that’s my business. So if you don’t want people digging things that are not true, give us stories to write.’
Edo then reached a turning point, realizing that it was the publisher’s personal agenda and not a reflection of her character. She explained, “It was at that point that I said, you know what, it’s your hustle, it’s not about me. I realised that trying to sue this one, trying to sue that one was draining me, taking my energy, distracting me, I was getting depressed and I said you know what?… it is what it is. The jobs and endorsements kept coming and I’m like, if you guys want to peg me as a sex symbol just to sell your papers and I’m still getting my jobs and endorsements, be my guest.”
