- Effiong stated that a woman’s money is specifically for her while a man’s money is usually for everyone
- He stated that the society is designed in a way that men are usually looked upon to rally and take care of a woman, but when a man has problems, he solves them all by himself.
Nollywood actor Daniel Etim Effiong has provided an explanation for why, in contrast to their male counterparts, female actors do not solicit donations from the general public.
According to him, men are expected to be “quick to rise to women’s needs” in society, but when a guy is faced with difficulties, he usually finds a solution on his own until he reaches a breaking point at which he has no other option than to seek for help from the public.
A man’s money, according to Effiong, is for his entire family, but a woman’s money is mostly for herself.
Recently, the actor was highlighted on the Bahd And Boujee Podcast, which was co-hosted by reality personality Tolanibaj and actress Moet Abebe.
In the podcast, the co-host, Moet asked: “Why is it mostly male actors that come online to ask for crowdfunding?”
Effiong replied: “Traditionally, in the society that we all exist in, women have been largely men’s responsibility. So whenever there is a problem with the woman, men are quick to rise up to the occasion and meet that need or solve that problem.
“Whatever culture you come from in Nigeria, it would be a taboo to the men when the women in that culture have a problem and the men are not solving it. So, if you flip that, the converse of that is when the men have issues, the men need to solve the issues. Women are not going to rise up to solve the issues for men largely. Men have to sort themselves out. And when a man reaches a point where he can not solve his problems, he is not going to go to a woman, he is going to go to the world and be like, ‘Guys, I’ve reached my limit. I cannot help myself, come help me.’”
