Popular Nollywood actress and producer of ‘Shanty Town’, Ini Edo, has explained that the unclad scenes seen in the movie became necessary following its story.
The NewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that ‘Shanty Town’, exposes the lives of sex workers who work for a cruel handler named Scar.
According to Ini Edo who played the role of ‘Inem’, Shanty Town is a story about crime and prostitution and one cannot tell such a story without displaying nudity.
The actress made her point clear during an interview where she hinted at why some private body parts were flashed in the film.
She added that going naked was not aimed at debasing anyone rather it was in a bid to make the movie look so real.
The veteran movie star also berated the excessive emphasis placed on a woman’s body while urging people to begin to see the feminine body as a mere creation of God without weird reasonings attached.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports that Ini Edo began her film career in 2000, and has featured in more than 100 movies since her debut.
In 2013, Ini Edo was a judge for the Miss Black Africa UK Pageant. In 2014, she was appointed by the United Nations as a United Nations Habitat Youth Envoy.
Her acting career started in 2000 with her debut in Thick Madam. Ini Edo was discovered by a producer at the audition she attended.
Her breakthrough came in 2004 when she acted in World Apart. She has appeared in over 100 films. She earned a “Best Lead Actress” nomination at the 11th Africa Movie Academy Awards for her performance in the movie “While you slept”.
Ini Edo, however, in 2017, made it clear that only hardwork, delight and dedication can get one to the top in the Nollywood industry as there are many distractions.
