According to Njoku, she was standing with a female producer who was wearing a leggings with a camel toe, when a very prominent male producer walked past and said, “I dey see your Virgina, if I hol am en, I go fuck am tire.”
Njoku was shocked and even upset, but her colleague casually said, “no mind am the man sabi talk rubbish.”
She took to Instagram to ask:”Isn’t this sexual harassment? Doesn’t she know? Or its just accepted?
Cases of sexual harassment in Nollywood are not new. In November 2017, an Instagram user alleged that Yoruba actor Yomi Fabiyi harassed her sexually many years ago.
According to the woman, Fabiyi demanded for a sexual favour in exchange for a role in a movie. Fabiyi denied the allegation, describing the accusations as a “pull him down by all mean syndrome.”
Also in November, an aspiring Nollywood actress accused popular Yoruba actor Yemi Solade of demanding for sex in exchange for a movie role.
