Charles Uwagbai To Sexual Harassment Victims In Nollywood: Stop Selling Yourself Short, Go & Get Trained
The producer of blockbuster movie Esohe has warned victims of sexual harassment in the Nigerian entertainment industry to stay away from randy producers looking for vulnerable actresses.
In a recent chat with Poupourri, Mr Uwagbai who distanced himself from film makers engaging in sex for role advised that actresses should look for appropriate channels to get jobs and not go through shortcuts in order to avoid being harassed by anyone.
“My advice to these actresses is that they should lookout for the right channels to get jobs. There are a couple of big production houses that call out for auditions, actresses should attend these auditions and also work on improving their skills.
I have conducted auditions and I realized that some people who claim to be actresses don’t even know how to act, they come for auditions without being prepared and I ask myself, are these the people that want to act?.
Actresses should not look for shortcuts by calling movie directors and producers or sending them messages in a bid to get jobs because by so doing they will fall into the wrong hands.”
