Nollywood new comer, Sandra Chinonso is well aware of the challenges that awaits her as she strives to make a name for herself in the Nigerian movie industry.
She blamed the wrong impression the public has about Nollywood on film makers, guilty of sexual harassment.
“They are the ones spoiling the industry and giving us a bad name, I see them as male prostitutes”, she said.
According to Chinonso, some producers ask for financial gift while some demand outright sex before giving out major roles in movie.
A million and one actors and actresses will rather keep mute about the sensitive issue but Sandra Chinonso condemned the act totally.
“Some film makers have asked me to pay certain fee to get featured in movies while some make love advances at me and it’s unprofessional. How many of them will I date or have sex with? It’s just very frustrating! Yes, some do it but I’m very different and we all have our pursuits and purposes in life.
I’m already a role model to my family, especially my siblings so I want to go through the right path because I’m the first child and I have six siblings”, she mused.
Asked her thoughts on actresses who exchange sex for movie roles she said, “I see them as dirty, cheap and desperate, with no morals or good upbringing.”
