Nollywood actress, Beverly Naya has blasted the way the media stereotype their interviews with female celebrities in the country.
Having her say on Twitter, Beverly Naya wrote that anytime ladies are interviewed, the focus is always on their marital status.
According to her, the concentration should be on the lives, careers, and aspirations of women, not who they plan to settle down with.
She added that she is astonished by this harsh reality women battle with every now and then.
Her words, “Quite unfortunate that when a woman grants an interview in this part of the world, the headline is almost always about her marital status or opinions on marriage. You’ll spend 30 mins talking about your life, career, and aspirations only to have ‘marriage’ be the focus. Wow,”
“Most common headlines used for women: ‘Why I’ve chosen not to get married’ ‘Why I’m still not married’ ‘The kind of man I want to marry’ ‘The right man hasn’t found me’ ‘I will marry when God says I should’ ‘I will get married when the right man finds me’ ‘Why I’m single.’”
