Nollywood actor, Daniel Etim-Effiong has shared an insight on why male actors turn to online platforms for financial assistance compared to their female counterparts in the industry.
In the latest episode of the “Bad and Bougie Podcast” hosted by Moet Abebe and Tolani Baj, the actor was questioned about the reason behind the increasing trend of male actors seeking crowdfunding for illnesses and other urgent matters.
Replying, Etim-Effiong based his argument on societal norms. He said that in many Nigerian communities, it’s a tradition for men to take care of financial responsibilities, even for women. This means men are more visible when asking for financial help, while women usually get support from men.
