Charles Uwagbai calls on actresses to stop looking for shortcuts into the industry

Published

The issue of sexual harassment in Nollywood is a subject of controversy that has over the years rocked that sector of the entertainment industry.

While majority of Nollywood actresses have attested to the existence of this act in the industry with claims to have been sexually harassed at a point in their careers, a few others have trashed the talk saying only the desperate wannabes in the make believe world are faced with such a challenge.

Uber talented film maker, Charles Uwagbai has weighed in on the never-ending controversy in the film industry. The brain behind block-bursters like ‘Esohe’ and ‘Brother Jekwu’ explained that he has heard reports of sexual harassment in Nollywood via social media but was quick to separate himself from film makers that engage in the filthy act.

“Well, I can only speak for myself, although I have heard of reports like this on social media but all I will say is, I don’t do it and I don’t think such an act is right.”

He however advised that actresses should look for appropriate channels to get jobs and not go through shortcuts in order to avoid being harassed by anyone.

“My advice to these actresses is that they should lookout for the right channels to get jobs.

“There are a couple of big production houses that call out for auditions, actresses should attend these auditions and also work on improving their skills.

“I have conducted auditions and I realized that some people who claim to be actresses don’t even know how to act, they come for auditions without being prepared and I ask myself, are these the people that want to act?,” he asked.

“Actresses should not look for shortcuts by calling movie directors and producers or sending them messages in a bid to get jobs because by so doing they will fall into the wrong hands,” he added.

Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa has clamped down on former presidential aide, Reno Omokri following his remark about ‘divorced women.’

The former presidential aide had shared a tweet where he urged the media to project ‘natural beauties’ like the late Nigerian first lady, Mayram Babangida as role models for youths, instead of bombarding them with photos of ‘bleached and divorced women with surgical enhanced bodies.’

Irked by the tweet, Makinwa, who is a divorcee, rebuked Omokri and she labeled him as an ‘embarrassment.’

In her words;

“Wow, at your age? Your wife and kids must be cringing for you, such an embarrassment. “Divorced” is nothing to shame anyone for, life happens. People like you are the reasons why a lot of people stay in unhealthy situations and lose their dignity and In some cases their lives.

“You can celebrate a version of beauty without putting another down, you don’t have to meddle in women’s business too. If you have a daughter I hope she gets the courage to never deal with a man as uncouth as you, stop with the misogyny.

“I don’t care about shots intended my way, what I do care about is the group of women you singlehandedly insulted with your “Divorcee” comment, to divorce is not a crime, every divorced person has survived something and sometimes getting a divorce is the only option they have 

“Enough with the divorce shaming of Anyone, I don’t see a divorced man being shamed for living his life after his failed marriage, people like that clown are probably in unhealthy marriages too. God forbid I marry a man who tweets that kind of garbage, sighhh.

“Everyone has a divorced person that they know, it can happen to anyone, that we divorced and alive should be encouraged, people are dying each day living in unhealthy situations and while I’m not advocating for divorce, if leaving is what you need to do, do it in peace.

“You cannot survive a bad marriage, survive a mental breakdown and then now have to deal with judgement from people who have not walked a mile in your shoes, it should not be encouraged. Someone’s journey does not have to be your cup of tea, that’s ok but you must respect it.

“Dragging my divorced slay queen naked ass back to my holiday and waking up to the most beautiful view. In my bed and outside my room. Love and light xx” Toke tweeted
