Why actors beg online than actresses – Daniel Etim Effiong


Actor Daniel Etim Effiong has explained why female thespians are not as active in seeking financial assistance online compared to their male counterparts.

Effiong highlighted that societal norms tend to favor women, particularly when it comes to shouldering responsibilities.

He said that men are often swift in addressing women’s needs, contrasting it with the situation when men encounter challenges and require assistance.

Instead of seeking help from women, Daniel suggested that men tend to try resolving their problems independently until reaching a point where they resort to social media to seek financial aid.

He further emphasized that a woman’s finances are primarily for her own use, while a man’s financial resources are typically allocated for the well-being of his entire family.

The actor recently made an appearance on the Bahd And Boujee Podcast, which is co-hosted by actress Moet Abebe and reality star Tolanibaj.

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.’”
