They say people rise and fall like the winter wheat and so did Rita Dominic


Popular Nollywood actress Rita Dominic has lifted the lid on why she quit acting in early 2001 because of the untimely death of her beloved Mother.

The veteran actress went through hell and loads of frustration in those darker times in her life even finding shelter hard to come by she ended up having to succumb to sharing a room with four people.

And like always all her trusted friends took off even before she could ask for help.

On Nana Aba Anamoah’s Women of Valor program, the actress disclosed that this torrid and dark period in her life eventually led to quit acting in 2001.

“When my mother died, my siblings managed to move back to the UK and I was now all alone in Nigeria. I found myself losing faith in the slow growth of Nollywood. Waiting months between jobs felt like an eternity. And then I lost some friends I considered family. It was just a very turbulent time in my life. I don’t want to dwell too much on that dark period, but it led me to hit rock bottom in Lagos.

“I became homeless. I was squatting with people for a stretch. during that process, I put my dream on hold. Many of you don’t know, but in 2001 and 2002, I stopped acting. I moved to London because it was a very dark period in my life,” she said.

Not all that glitters is gold and here we are thinking that the mainstream media is all fun and lights forgetting is like a drug to be a man.
