Actress and mum, Ini Edo who was involved in the production of the highly talked about Shanty town movie, has finally responded to critics of the loud nudity in the Nollywood series.
This is coming after the founder of Mount Zion Ministries, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye tackled Nigerian celebrities, particularly actors and actresses who promote nudity, romance, and other social vices with their movies.
Responding to the critics in a chat with BBC Pidgin, Ini Edo who played the role of ‘Inem’ in Shanty Town explained that it was impossible for the movie to be shot without nude scenes considering that the focus of the story is on crime and prostitution.
According to her, it would be impossible to properly pass across the message of the movie without displaying some sex scene.
Ini Edo further stressed that Shanty Town is a story about crime and prostitution and one can’t tell such a story without displaying nudity.
The thespian noted that going naked wasn’t aimed at debasing anyone rather it was in a bid to make the movie look so real.
