VETERAN NGOZI NWOSU BLAMES ACTRESSES FOR SEX-FOR-ROLE

Veteran actress Ngozi Nwosu has said that younger actress are at fault for the prevalent trading of sexual favours to land roles in the industry.

The actress, who is most famous for her role, “Peaceful Peace’ in Amaka Igwe’s soap, Fuji House of Commotion, where she is one of the troublesome wives of Chief Fuji told New Telegraph that trading of sexual favours by an applicant, apprentice, or subordinate, to a superior, or prospective employer, in return for entry into an occupation, or for career advancement, is a malady existent in every domain.

However, she said that of nollywood was a different class, adding that actresses are the one running after producers.

“Of course, when you talk about sex-for-role, it has to do with an individual. There’s nowhere that it does not exist, even in the whole wide world. Let me put it this way, in the entertainment industry, people do a lot of funny things to get to where they want to get to, so all this sex issues, of course they exist, it is not only the movie industry, it is practised in all other parts of the world as well.

“It is an individual thing, if producers ‘toast’ you, maybe it’s okay but sometimes the girls are the one ‘toasting’ the producers. So, who is to be blamed then? A man has the right to say bring your body, you, the woman has the right to say ‘no’.

“So it is a two way thing. Mind you, whoever they are sleeping with was not forced, that person was not raped. If it is a rape, it is a different thing, but this is a matter of bring your body, this is what I want to offer you, you have the right to say I will not do that to get to where I am going, so it is two way thing.”
