I became a producer because i was blacklisted – Rita Dominic
Actress and producer, Rita Dominic, has said that being blacklisted in the industry made her become a producer.
She made this revelation as a guest on the Phantom Xtraordinaire Show hosted by a former BBNaija contestant, Tobi Bakre. Recalling a low moment in her career, she said, “At some point in my career, I wanted to evolve and do different things. But the people I used to work with then couldn’t be bothered, so I wasn’t getting work.
“I was blacklisted silently. Back then, there was a major blacklisting (of some actors). However, mine was silent. That was actually one of the things that made me start producing movies.”
The 46 years old actress also noted that she had always wanted to explore other aspects of filmmaking, aside from acting. She said, “I am still acting but I always knew I would go behind the cameras and produce my own films. I have always been interested in different aspects of filmmaking.
“So, when it was time to form a production company, it was no-brainer because it was something I had planned to do.”
