“It Was Necessary” Ini Edo Replies Mike Bamiloye, Other Critics Of Nudity In Shanty Town

Popular Nigerian Nollywood Actress, Ini Edo who was involved in the production of the highly talked about Shanty Town Movie has finally responded to critics of the loud nudity in the Nollywood series.

This is coming after the founder of Mount Zion Ministries, Evangelist Mike Bamiloye tackled Nigerian celebrities, particularly actors and actresses who promote nudity, romance, and other social vices with their movies.

 According to Ini Edo  who played the role of ‘Inem’ in Shanty Town in an interview with BBC Pidgin, said telling a story about the shanties void of nudity and crime would be unrelatable because, in true life, these things exist in such regions.

According to her, it would be impossible to properly pass across the message of the movie without displaying some sex scene.

“We hear the talk about nudity and everything. But people don’t realise you cannot say a story about shanty, prostitution rings, or crime that you won’t see guns, or nudity. she said.

“People should realise it’s part of the story you’re trying to sell, not an attempt to debase anybody. Because at the end of the day, we have to start seeing the woman body for what it is, just a body God created without people’s mind travelling to different places.

“We are trying to create real life, near life situations. So, it’s inevitable for there to be nudity.”

Ini Edo further stressed that Shanty Town is a story about crime and prostitution and one can’t tell such a story without displaying nudity.

The thespian noted that going naked wasn’t aimed at debasing anyone rather it was in a bid to make the movie look so real.

The veteran movie star also berated the excessive emphasis placed on a woman’s body, while urging people to begin to see a lady’s body as a mere creation of God without weird reasonings attached.
