Every rational person, according to Nollywood actor Frederick Leonard, should use deodorants on a daily basis.
He made this comment in response to a recent Instagram post made by his colleague, Victor Okpalan.
Okpalan had bemoaned the conduct of some performers and staff members who showed up at the filming location with offensive odors.
He wrote, “You can’t come onset and smelling like a rat poison seller under Ajah bridge!
Like how can’t we breathe where you are? Abeg save our nostrils!!!”
Leonard responded in the comments area, arguing that deodorants ought to be required for both cast and crew.
He noted that filmmakers should also use mint or gum to prevent mouth odour.
The actor wrote, “Any human being that has a functioning brain whether cast or crew should use deodorants, and touch up again by 5.pm so you don’t begin to smell like goat. For a profession that requires that we are constantly on our feet for a minimum of 14 hours, common sense should apply.… And let’s not forget mint or gum to fight mouth odor.”
