Sexual harassment, offering or accepting sex in exchange
for movie roles in Nollywood is no more a phenomenon
shrouded in secrecy, even though no one has ever been
caught in the act or publicly exposed. Overtime, many
actresses have fallen prey to the antics of randy film
makers due to pressure, ignorance, desperation or ill
advice; but some have stood their grounds in spite of the
pressure they come against.
For curvaceously crafted actress,
Onyenemere, her experience has been a bitter-sweet one. In
a chat with Potpourri, the light skinned beauty recounted
her bitter experience with promiscuous movie directors and
producers who desperately wanted to have a taste of her
jelly roll. She condemned the shameful and unethical act,
vowing never to fall a victim.
“Some film makers have asked me to pay certain fee to get
featured in movies while some make love advances at me
and it’s unprofessional. How many of them will I date or
have sex with? It’s just very frustrating! Yes, some do it but
I’m very different and we all have our pursuits and purposes
in life. I’m already a role model to my family, especially my
siblings so I want to go through the right path because I’m
the first child and I have six siblings”, she mused.
Asked her thoughts on actresses who exchange sex for
movie roles she said, “I see them as dirty, cheap and
desperate, with no morals or good upbringing.”
She blamed the wrong impression the public has about
Nollywood on film makers, guilty of sexual harassment.
“They are the ones spoiling the industry and giving us a bad
name, I see them as male prostitutes”, she said.
