Use mouthwash before kissing scene – Actress Bibi Sonye begs male colleagues

Nigerian actress, Bibi Sonye, has appealed to actors to ensure they practice proper oral hygiene before participating in kissing scenes with her.

She made the plea in a video posted on Instagram as she threatened to take legal action against any movie production that pairs her with actors that have bad breath.

The screen diva said she is tired of locking lips with people that have horrible breaths and called for a stop to kissing scenes in romantic movies.

Use mouthwash before kissing scene - Actress Bibi Sonye

Sonye said; “Nigeria movie industry, we need to do better. If you are going to give me a script with a kissing scene and the actor you hired doesn’t have fresh breath, I will sue your production.

I am tired of kissing people with horrible breath. Let’s normalise not kissing in romantic scenes. You all will eat egusi and ofe nsala soup and come straight to the movie set without gargling or using a mouth wash and you think it’s okay to put your mouth in mine? I quit.

“You men are collecting N1m, N2m or whatever it is you’re collecting; yet you can’t go to the dentist? You go from smoking weed or cigars, and think it’s okay to bring it on set? I’m calling out all the Nollywood producers to evaluate the mouths of those you bring to set to kiss another (person).”

However, in another post shortly after, Sonye made a u-turn and stated that she was ready to kiss, as some producers had been asking her for refunds.

The Nollywood diva said; “Since I made that video, I haven’t had peace. All the scripts I have, they are asking me for refund. Please, I am sorry. I will kiss; there is nothing there.”
