Nollywood veteran Kanayo O. Kanayo has expressed concern over the plight of men, describing them as “endangered species.”

Speaking on a recent episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, co-hosted by Husband Material and Deity Cole, Kanayo lamented the financial dynamics in the entertainment industry. He noted that wealthy men often spend lavishly on female actors, creating an impression that male actors are not as hardworking.

“Many Nigerian rich men patronize our women and give them benefits that make us look like we are not working hard,” he said. “Nigerian rich men, most of them spend money on our girls to the extent that it impoverishes us. You call a girl, she’s your girlfriend, she says she wants to do a production and demands N100 million to N150 million and you give her. But if it’s me, KOK, you’ll say ‘go and work hard, my friend.'”

Kanayo highlighted the disparity in financial support, pointing out that men are more likely to seek financial help for medical expenses than women. “Let’s look into this issue because have you seen any lady ask for financial help for any medical expenses? It’s only the men. We are an endangered species, that’s what I am saying.”
