Popular Nigerian actress, Ini Edo, has revealed why she had the confidence to face a publisher at his place of business.

The thespian and mother of one shared this while speaking about the pressure she faced from the media to sell stories.

She explained how, if there was nothing real to report, the media would make up things, in an exclusive interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.

She recalled going to the publisher’s office to ask whether she had done anything wrong to him and being warned that if they couldn’t find anything, they would make up a narrative.

Ini Edo asserted that she opted not to sue the media and that it was their prerogative to use her as a sex symbol in order to promote their stories.

In her words;

“It was at that point that I said, you know what, it’s your hustle, it’s not about me. I realised that trying to sue this one, trying to sue that one was draining me, taking my energy, distracting me.

I was getting depressed and I said you know what?… it is what it is. The jobs and endorsements kept coming and I’m like, if you guys want to peg me as a sex symbol just to sell your papers and I’m still getting my jobs and endorsements, be my guest”
