Nollywood actress, Nancy Isime, has finally clarified her nude scene in newly released movie, ‘Shanty Town’.
Nigerians slammed Isime and Netflix for bringing nudity to the country’s film industry after a scene from the movie appeared to show the actress’ bare flesh.
Following the scene, many took to social media to criticize her.
Reacting in an Instagram post, the actress said it was not her body that was on display in the movie.
The movie star said a body double was used for the scene.
In film, a body double is a person on set who is used to pose as another actor. It is typically used for situations involving nudity that the main actor is unwilling to perform.
Models often play the role, and their faces are normally hidden.
“Simmer down horny boys and girls. I know those gorgeous body parts excite you but they sadly belong to my beautiful body double,” she wrote.
“Mine aren’t that succulent. Enjoy our beautiful masterpiece, get the message from each scene and Focus on the right Focus!
“Thank you so much for all the amazing reviews so far, I’m so glad y’all are watching and loving Shanty Town.”
Shanty Town debuted on Netflix on Friday January 20, 2023.
