According to her, different brands from wigs, clothing, skincare, and so on, sign up these actresses for ambassadorial deals, opportunities which are rarely made available to the actors.

Osifo said; “As a woman compared to a man I have more options to get more jobs than a man.

“I can advertise hair, wigs, shoes and a wide range of clothes from brands which most men cannot. The ratio of men to women is 1:3 which makes the market wider for us.
