The Nollywood actress who exposed her breast on set and suffered massive backlash after the photos went viral, Peace Maria Francis, has come out to defend herself.
Speaking with Nollywood Insider, the actress who is from Akwa Ibom said:
“Show me love and appreciation, and not condemnation. This is about my profession and I want to express myself better as it should be done, in my acting career.”
“My manager got it for me. He told me about the job and I agreed to take part in it. I wasn’t forced to do it. It is all because I wanted to use it to tell the real story of what happened back then in our country, Nigeria. It is also in a bid to tell our younger ones how we started back then, and the only way to do that, is to express it in a professional manner. That is what I am in the industry to do; tell people the real story and interpret such roles very well, for their better understanding and enjoyment.” ” As a professional actor I do take risk. For I take enormous pride when people call me an actor. This means and shows how serious I take my job. It is a sign of the sacrifice and effort I put in it to make my acts have some sense of reality, while sending good messages to our people.”
