Unlike her Nollywood colleagues like Omotola Jalade Ekeeinde, Genevieve Nnaji, & Tonto Dikeh, Rita Dominic says you will not

In an interview with Saturday Beats, she admitted that she had been tempted in the past but music won’t be something she ever ventures into.

She said,

I would not delve into music. If I had wanted, I would have gone into music a very long time ago. I am just an actress. I have been in this industry for about 16 years. I was tempted at a point when actors and actresses went into music about 10 years ago. I was approached then and I said no. If I did not do it then, why would I do it now?
