The complaints by Nigerians about the negative trend of asking for séx from young ladies before they get roles in Nollywood movies is not really a problem, according to Ugezu Ugezu, a movie director. In fact, he said “the situation is a positive development for the industry.”
Ugezu, who is also a writer and actor, was spotted in Tinapa, Calabar, during the Africa International Film Festival (AFRIFF). Below is what he told a reporter about the increase in séx for roles scandal:
“Since those who need roles in films see nothing wrong in going for it that way, I also see nothing wrong in it. Artistes are different in the way they approach things to get what they want.”
I just wonder what Mr Ugezu will be teaching the young ladies working under him.
