Nollywood actress, Nene Nwayo, is an actress trying to break into the Nigerian film industry, still called Nollywood
But as a young actress in this industry, there are so many challenges.
Nene Nwayo tells the BBC that she has « received quite a lot of sexual advances for a job ».
« One time I’m asked to come in. So I thought the auditions were done and once I got there, I realized that this person just wanted to have sex with me, so I could find a role » , she explained.
« They kept saying that they made other celebrities, that’s what other celebrities did to get to where they are, that if I wanted to get that, I had to do the same thing « , added the young actress.
During her short career, she says that she was asked to make love 10 to 15 times in exchange for roles, which she was categorically rejected.
« I would never offer sex to play in a movie, » says Nene Nwayo.
The young actress wants to believe that she can succeed in this industry with her talent and hard work.
« I do not want to go to that, go through someone or sleep with someone to have something. »
