Veteran Nollywood actress, Bimbo Akintola has reacted to news that the latest Nollywood flick from Dayo Amusa, ‘Pathetic’ deals only with celebrities and doesn’t affect the average person in the society.
Bimbo who also stars in the movie said:
“It happens to women, period! It can be because of your riches, it can be because of anything else but the man behaved the way he behaved not because she was a celebrity but because he had issues with himself that he needed to deal with.
A man that beats a woman has issues, a man that can kill obviously has issues. So, it doesn’t matter if she was a celebrity or not, his instinct would have still come out and would have shown. He would have beaten any woman that he married because that is the sort of person that he is’’.
The actress further went on to share how the ‘Pathetic’ story is a reality of everyone and that it is not about being a celebrity, but the spotlight is more on them because of their profession as opposed the attention that will be placed on normal people’s marriages. She then concluded that abuse is no respecter of person, whether celebrity or no-celebrity.
While also reacting to stories on whether she has ever been exploited in the manner the movie portrayed, she had this to say, “It’s not something that has happened to me personally before because I have not been married before. I am single.
The actress went on to encourage people to go see the movie when it’s out because it is an opportunity for everyone to learn from each other’s mistakes.
Pathetic is a human interest story from Dayo Amusa and will be released at the cinemas in March 24, 2017.
