Being an actress doesn’t make one a prostitute – Temidayo Babatunde


Yoruba actress, Temidayo Babatunde has spoken against the notion that one is automatically a prostitute just for being an actress.

The mother of one who spoke to Potpourri recounted how a fan from America wanted to hook up with her on arriving in Nigeria.

Sharing the encounter which she found to be embarrassing, Temidayo Babatunde said:

“There was a fan based abroad who sent me a DM on my Instagram page to appreciate one of my jobs. He was full of praises for the job and that was all. It was the first and last time we chatted only for him to send another DM months later that he would be coming to Nigeria and would want us to be together. Just like that? I was so embarrassed. I felt so low and wondered why some men feel because you are an actress you are automatically a prostitute. Being an actress doesn’t make me a prostitute.”

Temidayo Babatunde who has featured in over 20 movies has also produced movies like Twist of Fate, Ife Ojiji, Ife Fun Ife, Aseoluwa, Karahun(Greed), Eru (not yet released) and Ipa ‘Force’ (set for release next week).
