The Nollywood actress and producer, Rita Dominic, has stated that she became a producer after being blacklisted in the industry.
The actress made the revelation when she was hosted on the Phantom Xtraordinaire Show by the former BBNaija contestant, Tobi Bakre.
Recounting the challenges 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.”
The celebrity actress also explained that she has interest in exploring other aspects of filmmaking in addition to acting.
She said: “I am still acting but I always knew I would go behind the cameras and produce my own films. I have always been interested in different aspects of filmmaking.
“So, when it was time to form a production company, it was no-brainer because it was something I had planned to do.”
