Halima Gadji, better known as Marième Dial in the series MDHM, as the main actress, absent from the first episode of season 3, had justified on Instagram: « If I do not live from my art, I might as well stop. Being a star and having problems paying my rent or my bills, what’s the point?
The actress added: « I am an artist, I chose to do this job for love, for passion, but also to earn a living. How many artists in Africa have died or ended up badly because they never took their work seriously? No, stop. I am not an artist who makes SOS to be paid for her medicine or her rent, no I am an artist who works and deserves to be paid and respected, » she added.
