Most actresses make themselves vulnerable to s3xual harrastment- Dayo Amusa

Published

Popular Nollywood actress Dayo Amusa has revealed that some actresses make themselves vulnerable to sexual harassment by movie producers and directors.

The 37-year-old in an interview with The Nation said an adult has every right to say no to predatory men but most upcoming actresses in the industry are the ones running after producers and directors.

Asked if she had experienced sexual harassment in the industry, the Unforgivable actress said:

“No, I have not but something similar happened to me in my early years.”

“A director might see an upcoming (sic) actress and say I like you but you cannot be forced and it is so sad that these upcoming (sic) actresses are coming to fire the directors and producers to have their way.

“It’s not that the directors are the one taking advantage of them.

“Even the so-called girls as well come in making themselves vulnerable to the producers to get roles fast. So it takes two to tango.”

The actress who recently apologised for giving an inappropriate answer to an aspiring actress on Instagram added that the industry is quite big and there are many people competing for space.

“I believe everybody wants to find their space and some people might see it as a competition but as far as I am concerned, the sky is so big for everybody to take his or her space.

“For anybody that thinks they have to go the extra mile, that’s their problem.

“Just do your thing because people are watching,” she told her interviewer.

Nollywood now a den of Yahoo boys, prostitutes – Yemi Solade

Yemi Solade

Nollywood actor, Yemi Solade has made a damming revelation about the Nigerian movie industry.

In a recent chat with NigerianTribune, the  60-year-old revealed that the gatekeepers of Nollywood have allowed non-professionals fill spaces meant for those who truly have the passion for the craft.

“The Nollywood is not there right now. The Nollywood you see now is all-encompassing. It’s like an uncompleted building that is not guarded and what you meet there would amaze you.

“It has become an all comers affair, anybody can stroll in and act.

“All the Yahoo boys are now there, all the prostitutes that you can imagine are there.

“People cannot even differentiate between the core professionals and these class of clowns who have infiltrated the association, but they didn’t just fly in, some people whom you refer to as core professionals brought them in.

“It’s just so porous that anybody can become an actor, the entry point is so porous and annoying.

“It’s a profession and it must be handled and treated as one. I am not really pleased with the state of the industry.

“It’s a professional body and we must portray ourselves as one that has mastered the art and craft of the profession,” he said.
