Exotic dancer cum reality TV star, Chichi, has cleared up some misconceptions about exotic dancers in a recent bare-it-all interview.
The Big Brother Naija season 7 star, in a chat with Hero Daniels, said exotic dancing is a profession, but it’s heart-wrenching to see people judge exotic dancers because they see the work as unclean and inappropriate for any woman to do.
Recounting her experience, Chichi said she ventured into the profession when no one was ready to help her. She said those she met for help were asking for something she could not give.
According to her, the first time she danced on a stripping pole, she cried. She said most of the time she went to bed crying, became depressed and, at times, felt like not going back to work, but she knew that she had no choice.
She added that although people think strippers are loose girls, she can confirm that at her place of work, some girls are still virgins, and are only doing the work as a result of their condition.
“In this country we see exotic dancers as non-humans, but exotic dancing is a profession, not all exotic dancers are what you think they are. The first time I danced on that pole, I know I was crying”, she said in part.
