N#dity compulsory in ‘Shanty Town’ – Actress Ini Edo


Nollywood screen goddess, Ini Edo, has revealed why there is lot of nudity in her new series ‘Shanty Town’.

In a chat with Saturday Beats, she said, “There are a lot of people, male and female, even children going through these things (such as prostitution and assault shown in the movie). It is a fundamental problem that we are shedding light on, and people are bothered about nudity? How do you talk about prostitution in a realistic way and not show nudity? It makes no sense but a greater part of the people understand. For the few who don’t, they will come around.”

She also stated that while preparing for her role in the limited series, she had to go through rigorous training, especially for the fight scenes. “It stretched me. I had to do kick boxing, martial arts and taekwondo. I was blessed to work with some professionals, who were really good. They had the patience to take me through from the work-out to the art; in order to be precise with my punches. It was fun and I miss it. I think it is something I would take out time to do for myself at some point. I have always been a fighter.”
