Nollywood actor and a TV host, Kunle Remi has questioned why it appears that actresses in the entertainment industry are doing better than their male colleagues.
The actor stated this during an interview with the ‘Honest Bunch’ podcast, he mentioned that there are sometimes he drives to a movie location and his female colleagues will pull up in more expensive cars.
The ‘Anikulapo’ start actor, stressed that he is surprised, because he knows how he gets paid and how much the actresses are paid for the same movie.
Kunle Remi said, “How come the girls seem to be doing better than the men? That is a very valid question.
“I get to set, I probably drive my normal moderate car then you see your co-actress pull up. Not just pull up o, PULL UP.
“You start looking at it like, I’m a leader right? I probably know the budget of the whole film we are doing. I know how much I was paid; I have an idea of how much you were paid. I’m sweating here and you pull up in a nice car.
“People around see it as though what are you doing differently? What are they doing differently?Ladies will tell you; ‘I’m selling hair. I’m doing this. I have multiple streams of income. Some people, they have it by mouth, we don’t know exactly what the conversation is.
Speaking further, Kunle Remi said, “Now, the next person coming after you; what are they expecting to get when they get to where you are.
“They expect, this girl is driving this kind of car, that means the industry is booming. They come into this thing, give their all, give their best and they are not seeing what you are saying they are doing.”
