Actress and brand influencer, Mareme Edet has said she pays tax from her porn videos. She made this statement in an interview with Timileyin Adebanjo when she emphasised that despite being chastised for her choice of career, she is happy that she has been able to contribute to the society.

She said: “The business is very lucrative, I have saved a lot and I help people by contributing to the society. With the rate at which I am going, they would legalise it in Nigeria. I pay tax from my porn videos.

“I started two years ago officially; but before then, I used to do video calls with my clients. I used to send them naked videos. I enjoyed what I was doing so I decided to take it a step further by producing movies instead of only video calls.

“I have tried to look for jobs but I didn’t succeed at it; coupled with the fact that many bosses were interested in sleeping with me. When I started my career, my parents didn’t know about it; but few months ago, my parents got to know about it through my cousin who wanted to blackmail me to sleep with him. I rejected his advances, so he informed my parents and sister.

“My sister called me and she was crying on the phone. I told them to keep supporting me. They were bothered about the negativity that would come with it; I told them all I need is their support.

“I feel Nigerians have talent in having sex; most of the American porn movies are shot by black people. Nigerians watch porn videos a lot yet they are the ones criticizing me and send me emails.”

Asked about some of the challenges she has faced since she started her career, she noted that getting investors was a major challenge for her.

“One person has to stand up for everybody and the rest would follow suit. My company is registered, I tried to get investors to invest in it but it has been tough.

“Also, getting actors to actually feature in my videos is difficult because having sex in the bedroom is different from having sex in front of a camera.

“I have turned a deaf ear to the negative things people say about me. I also try to motivate people who work for me to ignore what people say about them.

“People who beg me for money online still say bad things about me. When I’m walking on the road, some people call me porn star, I just smile and wave back at them, I am not bothered. I have to get used to it because this is my profession.

“People admire my confidence, because when they meet me, I introduce myself to them as a porn star. I cannot lie that I’m an entrepreneur.”
