Seasoned Nigerian actress and producer, Uche Jombo has said when career-driven women attempt to succeed and rise to the peak in a field dominated by men, they work twice as hard.

According to the filmmaker, many of her male colleagues who started making films before her, have left filmmaking to pursue other interests whereas she is still trudging on.

Jombo said; “Women are very serious-minded people. I remember when I started producing movies, there were a lot of my male colleagues who started producing at the same time.

“Some of them started doing other things and are no longer interested in filmmaking as of today. But I am still here toughening things out. In essence, when women put their minds to something, they do it because normally, women would work twice as hard to prove themselves.”

Asked why women must work extra hard to prove their mettle in Nollywood, she said it can be traced back to Nollywood’s early days. She added that the industry started as a ”boys club” and as a woman in their midst it takes a long time for them to regard and acknowledge her.

The actress explained; “When Nollywood started, it was a boys club. As a woman coming to produce your film, it takes a while to be taken seriously. I think the film that made people take me seriously was ‘Damaged’. But I had done three films before ‘Damaged’ as an executive producer and producer. That film did well. It was an advocacy film.”
