Published

To many, her name may not ring a bell but in the Nigeria’s Porn industry (if there is anything like that yet), Edet Mareme is an authority, she calls the shots and dictates the affairs of the sector in her own way.

Unknown to many, Mareme is a graduate of Photojournalism from Nigeria Institute of Journalism in Ogba, Lagos.

After her graduation from NIJ, she had a brief stint with TheNews Magazine, PM News as a photojournalist according to her bio on Instagram before it was updated when she switched career to full adult entertainment some years back.

In her days as a photojournalist, Mareme is known for her dedication to work and ability to display images in order to tell a visual story.

As a journalistic professional, the now adult entertainer is said to be skilled at interpreting and communicating an event through compilation of photograph in the news magazine, according to her colleague at The News and PM News.

Few years later, Mareme was conspicuously missing in action as she completely goes off the radar, for reasons best known to her. Little did we know that the chubby looking actress have dumped her journalism career to become a successful and popular porn-star.

Mareme said people are mistaking the porn industry for commercial sex or prostitution, claiming they are quite different professions and getting people to understand that her personality is different from her chosen career has become a herculean task for her.

“People mistake me for a sex worker, I am a porn actress. Because you watched my video from an x-rated website doesn’t mean I have sex with everybody I meet,” she explains.

She added that in the porn industry, so many protocols are followed before an actor or actress can participate, including conducting tests.

The Nigerian porn actress said videos are posted on x-rated websites to generate views and per-click cost. She said videos are also sold to other x-rated websites. All these complement the amount paid for acting in a porn scene.

Mareme called for a professional porn industry in Nigeria that would be able to compete with the international industry.

In an exclusive interview she granted recently, Mareme revealed: “I am a porn actress, I do adult entertainment movies or what is called porn films. I have been called a sex worker several times. People mistake me for those who have sex for money. I am an actress first and foremost and I get paid for acting aside enjoying what I do. Again, I have an opinion on who I choose to act with, there are protocols and several people are on the set, but many people don’t see it this way, they still feel, it’s money for sex.

The actress, who also features in regular home videos says the adult movie industry is quite lucrative and profitable. She says “Adult movie business is profitable, and actors or actresses can earn between $3,000 to $10,000 for a 5 minutes long video.

Uglygalz as she’s popularly called, was recently on the set of a Nollywood film without adult content. She features in the film alongside popular Nollywood actors as a regular actress and says she believes the sky is her limit.

Homosexuality is illegal in Nigeria and publishable by up to 14 years in prison; he said in a previous interview that the impact of the video being leaked in 2021 led to him missing out on jobs and “getting broke”.

However in an Instagram story on Tuesday (27 September), the actor included an LGBTQ+ pride flag, revealing his family “saved me” with their support.

Godwin Maduagu said: “After getting a better life for myself, my close friends set me up, blackmailed me, and leaked my sex tape. I became depressed and almost committed suicide.

“My family saved me by giving me words of encouragement and advice that kept me going. Look at me now living my truth because I’ve now gotten a strong thick skin.

“Love is love. Say no to blackmail.”

Nollywood stars have previously stood up against the treatment of the LGBTQ+ community in Nigeria despite the difficulty in speaking out; even those who attend a wedding or operate an LGBTQ+ nightclub in the country can be sentenced to 10 years in prison.

In July 2022, Nigerian actor Uche Maduagwu was arrested after appearing to come out as gay and defending the LGBTQ+ community on Instagram, despite stressing that he is “not gay”, but saying he wanted to use his “celebrity status [to fight] for this beautiful community”.

That same month, actor Yul Edochie spoke out about the horrific sentence of death by stoning given to three gay men, aged 20, 30 and 70.
