Highly respected veteran Nollywood Yoruba actress Mrs Idowu Phillips popularly called Mama Rainbow recently narrates her ordeal in the hand of her late husband‘s best friend who demanded for sex in exchange for money.
In an exclusive interview with Movie moments, the single mother of five claims she get paid N25,000 per movie.
When queried about her challenge as a single mum, the 70-year-old veteran actress said;
“When I lost my husband, a long time ago, that was in 1984, I thought the world would come to an end. It was difficult for me to cope as a woman, especially with the financial aspect. I had to continue from where my husband stopped and there was no money in theatre then. I had to meet one of my late husband’s friends, who said that I would have to sleep with him before I could get the money. I was shocked, because this was someone we all called father and a very close ally of my late hubby.”
Love this woman… She is very talented. Her motherly gesture is simply amazing.
