Ruth Eze, a well-known actress from Nigeria, claimed that actors in the East, especially in Asaba, Delta State, are being cautious with each other.
Because there is no trust, she says no one on set buys food for anyone else because 'Asabahood' is so dangerous.
Furthermore, Ruth Eze believed that a couple's happiness in a relationship or marriage should remain private. She said:
“Many people do not like others, especially in Nollywood in the east of the country. We don't love each other. I can't expose my relationship, or who I'm in love with.
“There is no actor in Nollywood, especially in Asaba (Delta State), that you would buy food for on set and they would eat it. Everyone is scared because of how dangerous that side is. When you choose any production, you are usually afraid. So to be careful, you have to buy your food.”
The actress made these claims during her discussion about why she can't marry her male counterpart, especially since the only actor she would ultimately want to marry is already married.
The movie star revealed that several girls on set often bring food to actors, even married ones.
Ruth Eze said in a PUNCH interview that she can marry a filmmaker but not an actor.
The movie star claims that audiences may not interact with certain Nollywood actors if they are given the opportunity to observe their lifestyle while on film. She says:*
“I can never marry a colleague. I can marry a filmmaker, but not an actor. When you see what they do on set during filming, even if they are married, you wouldn't want anything to do with them. Other girls come looking for them, and some even bring food.
“Imagine you are filming in Enugu and your family is in Asaba; you would see girls on set bringing food to them. Imagine being in love with such an actor and witnessing it. The only colleague I would have liked to marry is already married.”
