Nigerian actor and comedian, Charles Inojie brought to light a plague that appears to have eaten into the fabric of the Nollywood industry. On a recent episode of OAP Nedu’s podcast, ‘The Johnson’s’ star pointed out that the Nigerian film industry has been polluted by a particular sect of ladies who used the profession of an actress to hide their uncouth means of making money.
Charles claimed that some of these ladies claimed to be award-winning actresses with no good movies in their catalogue. He asserted that all they do is sell their bodies and acquire big cars and mansions hiding under the umbrella of the movie profession when, in actual reality, they couldn’t make it past the audition stage.
Inojie added that the issue of sex-for-role in Nollywood is not perpetrated by just filmmakers but also some actresses who throw themselves at them to get movie roles.
“There are some actresses who can do anything just to be in front of the camera. And when you meet a character who is not properly formed as the director or producer, he will fall. So, there are actresses like that. The issue of sex-for-role is not just one-way. It is a two-way thing.
“There is also an army of Jezebel daughters looking for directors and producers to fall… So, the level of desperation among some of these girls is also an issue.
