Ashmusy, a popular skit maker and influencer, emphasises how terrible it is when people mistakenly credit her success to men rather than to her own personal effort.
She stated this in a recent interview with Punch Saturday Beats while criticising how society is quick to attribute men for women’s success.
According to her;
“Linking a woman’s success to men can be annoying and hurtful. That is the reason I want to rebrand myself. It can be hurtful when a young girl works so hard, and all her efforts are linked to a man.
“After I reflected on everything I had been doing so far, from my dressing to my videos, I decided to correct them by changing that narrative. I am still an entertainer and I still have to entertain in some way, but it will be done in a better way.”
“The idea of rebranding myself has been in my head since 2022, but I just wanted to be sure I was ready; and also I wanted clear all my pending deals. I felt the need to leave that stage for another one.
“Covering up myself (in outfits) is a part of my rebranding. I hated the fact that a man was said to be the source of my success. That narrative was hurtful, because I know how hard I work to make every single dime. I will ascribe my success to God, consistency and hard work.”
Speaking on what about her she’s most proud of, she said:
“I have been able to build myself to a certain level in every aspect without having to depend on any man. My family has been supportive too.”
