Nigerian actress, Nancy Isime has recently set social media abuzz with her nudity scene from her latest film, “Shanty Town”.
The video of the scene which shows Isime unclad has been widely shared on social media sparking conversations among viewers.
However, the actress has come out to debunk claims that the scene depicted her nudes, stating that what was shown was rather a ‘body double’
She wrote on her Instagram handle, “Simmer down horny boys and girls. I know those gorgeous body parts excites you but they sadly belong to my beautiful body double. Mine aren’t that succulent.
The film tells the story of a group of courtesan plotting to break free from the clutches of a notorious criminal mastermind, but political corruption and familial connections make achieving liberty a daunting task.
Isime plays the lead role of the young girl, and her powerful performance has been widely commended by critics.
However, the controversial scene continues to cause more buzz online with some praising its raw and realistic portrayal of life in the grit and hustle mentality of Lagos, while others criticizing it as exploitative and unnecessary.
