Nollywood actress, Ufuoma McDermott shares why she no longer posts pictures with her celebrity friends, the likes of Uche Jombo, and others.
It’s no news that the likes of Chioma Akpotha, Uche Jumbo, Genevieve, Rita Dominic, and a host of others have been in the industry for decades, and for this reason, have bonded over several projects.
However, Ufuoma McDermott recently told Punch the reason why she and the other actresses no longer post one another via socials.
While speaking, she said;
Before Wives on Strike, Chioma Akpotha, Omoni Oboli, Uche Jombo and myself were close individually, but together, no.
We bonded when we were filming the movie because individually, I had known all of these girls, but we just became closer spending time filming.
The conditions under which we shot that film, God! We just had to bond.
But if you notice, for some time we haven’t appeared in each other’s projects. Here’s the thing: I don’t like that slogan, “women supporting women”, because I don’t hear men saying “men supporting men” unless they’re trying to diss women. I don’t like to say it because we put too much emphasis on the negative of women being together as against the positive.
So what we’re invariably doing is making people focus on seeing a group of friends together and saying “oh my God, this is wonderful, women don’t do this” so we’re trying hard to break that.
Before now, when we’re together, we’ll film, put it on Instagram, and people would be excited. We don’t do that anymore because we feel like we might even be giving the wrong vibes. We want you to find your compatibility naturally
We want you to be able to come and say “you’re a guy, I’m a girl, we have this project together and we can run it.
It doesn’t matter what our gender is. You’re a woman, I’m a woman, we can run it together. We want you to find it not because you’re trying to prove a point that women don’t support women, we want you to prove a point that we can do things together.
We think that them always seeing us together in their head is making them think ‘wow, these women have been friends for such a long time when women cannot (be friends)’ and we don’t want you thinking that.
