Gloria Sarfo has disclosed that despite being a good actress, some filmmakers have neglected and denied roles.
But she added that a few “genuine” and “proper” producers choose real talent like herself over casting actors just for the sake of their relationship with them.
Her comment comes on the back of Yvonne Nelson’s claims.
Last week, filmmaker Yvonne Nelson took to Twitter calling out her colleagues. She claimed the industry is filled with hatred and jealousy.
She added that instead of willingly supporting colleagues, one would have to remind them before they share project artworks, specifically movie fliers to their social media handles and pages.
Gloria was one of the actors who shared their opinions on Yvonne’s claims.
Yvonne started a fresh series of tweets directly calling out Gloria. She claimed Gloria has hated her for a long time now.
She also told Gloria to not wait to be casted by her production and that she should go into production herself.
In an Instagram post Monday August 10, 2020 Gloria she noted that she she does not wait on producers to spot and cast her.
“Even though I’ve been neglected, denied, underrated, ridiculed and called names , despite the fact that I’m good at what I do, I still get roles from proper, genuine and discerning producers who believe in the abilities of a pure talent and chooses professionalism over familiarity,” she said in her post.
“So I dont wait for them, but rather I try to correct my mistakes, right my wrongs, research about my job, work hard, persevere, maintain a clean heart and mind, pray and earn it,” she added.

Now let me SET the RECORDS STRAIGHT First of all, I have NEVER HATED on anybody in my life, NOT EVEN my WORST ENEMY, or even THOSE WHO HURT, AND SPITE me IN MY FACE, NEVER! (That's why I mostly pity those who think I would have issues with them, simply because of how they feel and act towards me) HATE IS A VERY STRONG WORD, and ofcourse one of the POWERFUL TOOLS that contributes to FAILURE in life. So I always carefully try to AVOID the word HATE in my dictionary. I would rather use that time to HATE on my fellow human being, to BETTER my PRECIOUS life🙏🏿 Secondly, I AM NOT IN COMPETITION with anybody, regardless who you are. The ONLY PERSON I'M IN COMPETITION with is MY OLD SELF!! I GROW through what I GO THROUGH💪👊 Thirdly, even though I've been NEGLECTED, DENIED, UNDERRATED, RIDICULED and CALLED NAMES, despite the fact that I'm good at what I do, I still get roles from PROPER, GENUINE and DISCERNING producers who believes in the abilities of a PURE TALENT and chooses PROFFESIONALISM over FAMILIARITY👌💯 So I dont WAIT for them, but rather I try to correct my mistakes, right my wrongs, research about my job, work hard, persevere, maintain a clean heart and mind, pray and earn it👌 Now, I HAVE NEVER BEEN A HYPOCRITE, not even in my HARDEST MOMENTS in life, NEVER!!!! Just that my leniency and kindness are mostly taken for my weaknesses and for granted. But you see, I've come to realize that, they're all lessons and stages in life👌 So I usually ignore those unfortunate moments🤦♀️ That's why I love my Nigerian friends and colleagues, cos they appreciate even the LITTLE THINGS that you do for them👌 Unlike here in my beloved country, even a simple like, comment or support is termed as being a HYPOCRITE or nhwehwEanimuu🤦♀️ Lastly, I HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN that HUMILITY IS ONE OF THE KEYS TO SUCCESS, regardless🙏🏿 Its helped a lot of SUCCESSFUL people in the world, and sincerely, helped me too, and I hope that others will learn from it🙏🏿 And oh, I just admire the GOD FACTOR in my life, cos that's the STRONGEST PILLAR that holds me💪👊🙏🏿 NEVER THINK ILL OF ANY MAN. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE ANY HUMAN BEING. I REST MY CASE🙏🏿 Glorious Morning World🙌🙏🏿🙌
