Monalisa China and Rita Dominic are two heavyweights in the Nigerian movie industry fondly called Nollywood. Though they never really competed in the industry like Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo are doing in the world of football at the moment, but they were stars in the industry that had a lot to fight for.
Both actresses were active in Nollywood when there were several talents fighting for prominence and it was natural to have friction. There was a time Mona, as Monalisa Chinda is fondly, and Rita Dominic were rumoured to be at loggerheads.
But in a recent interview with Punch, Monalisa explained why she is no longer closer to Rita as many people have suggested.
Explaining, she said, “Rita Dominic and I are not at loggerheads. We just drifted apart and she is still my sister. We went to the same school. I do not think that anybody should have a permanent enemy or a permanent friend. As you grow up in this big industry, your interests start to differ and that is just what happened.”
