Nollywood actress Joy Tambou has claimed that the sex-for-role plague destroying the film industry is not the fault of the creators.
She asserts that in order to get movie jobs, desperate actresses willfully consent to have sex with producers, directors, and filmmakers.
Tambou recently stated to The Nation that producers/directors do not compel themselves upon women and that sex is a personal choice.
She asserted that in order to advance in their professions, performers do not necessarily need to provide sex, pointing out that the internet has made it possible to do it without doing so in the conventional manner.
She, on the other hand, scoffed at those who stereotype Nollywood as a sex requesting industry, emphasising that every industry in the world requests sex in exchange for favours.
Tambou said, “Stop blaming producers, stop blaming people that they are requesting for sex. There is no sector in this world that they don’t request for sex but the thing is it is not just in Nollywood alone, it is everywhere. You go to the bank, people request for sex, in politics, law firms, everywhere.”
