Actress Nkechi Blessing Sunday has called out some Directors in the Yoruba movie industry who enjoy casting female characters for lead roles and not paying them any fee, all in the name of giving them fame.
According to her, many of the male directors in the Yoruba movie industry will authoritatively tell you with their full chest to either sleep with them before you casted for a lead role in their movies or you forget it.
“At first when I heard the Baba Ijesha case, we didn’t know it was Comedian Princess that was involved until i watched her live video on Instagram when she narrated how it happened.
Before then, many people had been tagging Mr Latin, the TAMPAN leader to say and do something but he kept mum, so I spoke out too. and said with my full chest that the industry was useless…I had blocked Damola Olatunji on my WhatsApp, he is a director and i told them all that any director that will not pay me my money before casting me for my roles, i am not doing…..i am not working for fame but money and ..i guess he has personal issues with me cos he is one of such directors…
It wasn’t until the Noise became loud that Mr LATIN released a video to say he couldn’t take action against Baba Ijesha because he is not part of the association…but the real reason they couldn’t talk is because if one of them comes out to talk, all their victims will come out and call them out….that is why they are quiet cos in one way or the other the are guilty, they tell you with their full chest, if you don’t sleep with them you can’t get this lead role”
Kemi Filani recalls that Odunlade Actor, a popular actor was recently exposed for allegedly always sleeping with young females before casting them for movie roles. He denied it however.
