Sex for role: Producers and directors are not to blame, according to actress Joy Tambou.

Joy Tambou, a Nollywood actress, has stated that filmmakers are not to blame for the sex-for-role epidemic ravaging the film industry.

She claims that desperate actresses willingly agree to have sex with filmmakers, producers, and directors in order to land movie roles.

Tambou recently told The Nation that sex is a personal choice, and that producers/directors do not force themselves on actresses.

She said actors do not need to offer sex to achieve career successes, pointing out that with the internet, it’s now easy to showcase acting skills without doing it in the traditional way.

She, however, frowned at those who stereotype Nollywood as a sex requesting industry, stressing that every sector in the world requests sex 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.”
