Erica Nlewedim, a former Big Brother Naija season five contestant, has berated a critic for ‘undermining her hard work’.
In a series of tweets on her verified Twitter page, the actress responded to a critic who stated that movie producers are using her for clout.
It started when a user asked tweeps to choose their favourite actress between Erica and renowned Nollywood star, Bimbo Ademoye.
The critic, identified as @essenceflames, replied, “This is really an insult to Bimbo.
Bimbo literally built herself from the ground up as an actress. Erica went for Big Brother and Producers are using her for clout.”
In response, Erica said, “Don’t you ever in your life undermine my hard work!I did it all! Free work, low/mid budget films, and went to Filmschool to improve.
“Do you know how many talented actors are still unknown because the right people don’t know them? I should have sat at home waiting for magic instead of BBN?
“Not a lot of people are worth the response but I have to set things straight since there’s this ignorance concerning BBN talented actors!
“It’s a platform to show what you have been doing before to a larger audience! I don’t only work hard, I work smart!”
