Nollywood actress and CEO of ROK TV appalled by the actions of a lawyer who didn’t believe she was the founder of ROK TV because of her simplicity.
She stated this on her Instagram page on Saturday morning, June 11th.
According to her, women are also doing big things.
In her Instagram post, Mary Njoku narrated how a lawyer expressed disbelief that she can’t afford to pay a rent worth millions.
She added that she spent over 45mins trying to convince her I can afford the rent but she didn’t believe me.
However, she had to call a male Colleague whose career is ‘stronger’ than mine to help be the guarantor.
Taking to her Instagram page, Mary Njoku wrote, “Dear Women, women are doing big things too!!!
Few weeks ago, a family member needed a guarantor for her rent and I went to the lawyer’s office to sign.
Spent over 45mins trying to convince her I can afford the rent but she didn’t believe me.
“Thought I was an actress whose career has refused to blow. She needed a proof that I am truly the Founder of ROK. Or the CEO of the studio. I Googled my name but she no gree ?. For her eye I can’t be ME. I be small geh. The Agent and I begged her to do her small research but refused. Told her I will get CEO of IROKOTV to co sign but she said I was calling big big names. She insisted on seeing my business card. I had non. BUSINESS CARD wey dem fit write anything o! ??
I had to call a male Colleague whose career is ‘stronger’ than mine to help be the guarantor. She was a fan and super happy.
I was sad. For her. She lives in a box. An old one.
Today, Nollywood is arguably controlled by women. We sign almost all the cheques!
But I guess I am too young and too simple to be ME.
I had no entourage
I waited at their reception
I was super polite to her
She even asked for the name of my Grandfather’s village.
I was nice.
Yet she insisted on being a fool. Sad.”
