Veteran Yoruba actress, Idowu Philips aka Iya Rainbow has revealed that her commitment to God has reduced the scope of movie scripts she can accept.

She made this known in an interview published by Sunday Punch.

Iya Rainbow said she can no longer act the role of a witch in movies so as not to send the wrong message to her church members.

However, she said that having multiple streams of income compensated for her reduced income from acting as a result of her stance.

Iya Rainbow said, “I have been getting a lot of scripts. As a matter of fact, I just got back from a location where I was with the likes of Desmond Elliot. I also work as a traditional master of ceremonies. I have different streams of income to sustain me and my family.

“But when it comes to acting, I am careful of the types of roles I accept because my church members would get to watch the movies. As a matter of fact, that was why some producers stopped inviting me for movies in the first place because there are certain roles I would not act, such as playing a witch.”
