“Why My Skin Colour Doesn’t Get Me Acting Roles”, Adunni Ade Reveals

Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade has revealed in a recent interview that she would love to change people’s misconception about her skin colour.According to her, many people believe her skin colour gets her acting role. She revealed this is not true. She further added that in fact, she sometimes gets dropped because of her skin colour.She however, revealed she gets acting roles because the producer knows she will deliver on the character.She said,“Let me quickly address the first part of your question.Contrary to the popular belief, the fact that I am “light-skinned” has not necessarily been a blessing in getting acting roles for me.In fact, I have been dropped from a few sets on the basis of my skin-colour. So it is not accurate to say producers cast me for being light-skinned.Now, for being beautiful, I am grateful to God for giving me a modestly appealing appearance, but all the jobs I have had have been on the premise that the producers or directors thought I could deliver on the character they wanted to project and I am glad I have been able to live up to the confidence reposed in me on the many projects I have worked on.Now, if it gets to my head that I am charming, I have been this way all my life; so I have no reason whatsoever to change my personality or relations withpeople.I am still the same happy-go-lucky girl that will park her car and discuss with street hawkers and buy roasted plantain when I feel like.”

Read Reasons why BSc is Better than Polytechnic HND.

Many of you might be thinking why is Unversity BSc better than Polytechnic HND.
We’ve decided to bring to you guys the 9 reasons why university BSc is better than Polytechnic HND.See reasons below:-

1. Quality of Lecturers– You cannot just compare the experience and expertise of lecturers they have in a university setting to that of the polytechnic. Most university lecturers are professors and PhD holders with years of teaching coupled with experience to show for it. In fact, most Master degree holders in some universities are mere assistant lecturers.This is not so for our polytechnics where most of their so-called ‘experienced’ lecturers are mere BSc holders who are university graduates. Most rectors of polytechnics are Msc holders, though not all, only a few are PhD holders. At times, even corps members lecture in some polytechnics.

2. Qualification For Entrance– The qualification for entrance into the university is more strict compared to that of polytechnics. Obviously, JAMB UTME cut off for universities is somewhat high, at times, this leads to frustration of jambites, which makes them resort to polytechnics.

3. Funding From Government– Nigerian Universities are much more funded by government than polytechnics. Funding is one of the ways to determine the quality of an institution.If you notice, the government and the media in generalpay more attention to the demand of ASUU over ASUP. Though, some universities might decide to playnarrow with the funds.That is why products of universities are always trained better than those of polytechnics.

4. Research Work– Universities are the foundation of researches and this is the root of progress in institutions. Even though the quality of research work in Nigerian universities is poor, it is still far better compared to that of polytechnics that do very negligible or feeble research works.

5. Beautiful And Large Campus Environment– Mere structures and architectures of buildings in an institution goes a long way in telling about the quality of such institution.Taking OAU as an instance, whether OAU is still the most beautiful campus in Africa or not is an argument meant for another day. But No polytechnic in Nigeria can even compete with the institution in terms of structures and its landmass.

6. Quality of students– It’s a no-brainier that the most brilliant students go to universities. In most polytechnics, all you see is dejected and old students who have taken JAMB UTME more than a couple times but no luck, then resorted to such institution. Just few of polytechnic students are young and smart,no hate.

7. Scholarships Preference– Reputable scholarship bodies hardly notice polytechnic students when it comes to scholarship offering. Only university undergraduates would have the opportunity to apply for such scholarships. Not only at the undergraduate level but also postgraduate scholarships.Meaning, there i hardly scholarships for polytechnic students. This is another form of discrimination in some sense.

8. Market Demand– Market preference for BSc is far higher than for OND/HND. OND/HND holders are most times seen as middle level manpower though that was the intention when polytechnics were initially created.There are more opportunities for BSc holders even outside the country and world wide.

9. Self Esteem– An average BSc holder tends to have more confidence and self-belief than a HND holder. This is however not the fault of HND holders, they onlyhave to face stiff discrimination in the employment market, thus having a negative impact on their self esteem.These and some other reasons are why Polytechnic students are subject to discriminations anywhere to find themselves.

DISCLAIMER:This post is not in any way meant to impress, oppress or make anyone feel depressed. It is just a mere observation from an average human beingwho is subject to flaws and bound to write whatsoeverwords that form from the letters he probably randomly typed.

'I used to smoke, masturbate and date married men until I met Jesus' - Nollywood Actress Nichole Banna.

In a post she shared on her IG page, Nollywood actress, Nichole Banna, recounted how she used to smoke, masturbate a lot and even date married men until she met Jesus and changed. She warned young girls in the habit of dating married men to desist from it as theconsequences are generational. Read her inspiring post belowAm sharing this testimony because I want to honour the one behind the transformation in my life. I have always been a God fearing girl, my relationship with the Holy Spirit is one that gets stronger by the day. Am grateful for being connected to a great man of God David Ibiyeomiewhom through his teachings and books have brought me closer to God. There's a difference between having a relationship with the Holy Spirit and being religious. Am glad I can boldly say I belong to Jesus Christ because I really fear and try my best to obey all I see in His wordwith the Help of my Sweet Holy Spirit. Before now I was just that young girl that wanted everything some girls thought are the priorities in life. So back then I dated married men whom will end up loving me somuch and doing all I asked,thereby spending less time with their wives. Back then it felt good to be loved and taken care by someone's husband and it seemed normal.But as God may have it i became born again. Attended WOLBI (WORD OF LIFE BIBLE SCHOOL )in Salvation Ministries. I encountered light and stopped everything that has to do with married men and all they had to offer despite the pressure. I became content with what I have and trust me God didn't lie when He said that He will provide everything I needed if I seek Him first. Letting go of that completely doesn't make me a perfect girl because no one is perfect but it felt good to go into a covenant with God,and watch Him fulfil His own part. The transformation didn't end there cause I still had other things I was doing that doesnt glorify God.I use to smoke and mastubate alot and that made me have less friends andbecause I didn't want the dirty habits known publicly.Though After WOLBI I stopped smoking and mastubating for a while, after some time ,i backslided and became worst with the habits.I smoke all thetime coupled with the challenges i was going through then.In the midst of this I still loved God,kept praying and asking for mercy especially after each action. Am grateful to God because I know He has healed me completely and this is the proof that am free from that demonic influence because I kept praying and asking for mercy especially after each act. Am grateful to God because I know He has healed me completely and this is the proof that am free from that demonic influence because it was abig battle for me to testify openly. I practiced this secretly because I didn't want my sister to know about it and especially the public,I didn't want to mislead my fans because everyone's grace differs. Please this is to encourage you, nomatter what you are doing don't let go of God's hands,keep striving to be better. Again for the ones that still date married men cause of money,please stop because the consequences are generational. Same money you will get if you work hard and be content. I wish I can explain better than this but am not a pastor, am just a young girl that has surrendered totally to the Lordship of our Lord Jesus Christ. And for those struggling to stop anyhabit, don't be too hard on yourself. Just keep asking the Holy Spirit for help. One day you will testify like me. My testimony isn't here for you to judge me or unfriend me becausethe truth is bitter. I am not judging anyone aswell. I believe there's hope for everyone. If I can be better trust me you can be aswell. Heavenis real, God is real. Am glad I belongto Jesus Christ and He doesn't judge me. He is your father. Go to Him however you are,He won't let you down. Please instead of castigating me,take the lesson and keep praying for every one out there. We all are in a battle field. God bless you all. #JesusisLord #mytestimony#notasaintoo #nwachinemere
