Kanayo O Kanayo, a veteran of Nollywood, has denied accusations that women are requested for sexual favors in order to acquire movie parts.
On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, the actor announced this on his Instagram page.
“When you hear of sex for roles in Nollywood, please do not believe all you are told. Many of the girls are not working hard to live up to the roles they are cast for. Quite a shame,” he wrote.
For years,’sex for roles’ has been one of the most contentious issues in Nollywood.
While some business leaders have refuted the claims, others have been accused of requiring sex from their coworkers.
Odunlade Adekola, a Nollywood actor, was charged with the same crime in 2021.
He, on the other hand, disputed the accusation.
“As a celebrity, you don’t need to reply to everything they say about you, but there are some things that they’ll say and you need to clear it, let me clear this one,” he said.
He urged his colleagues who have worked with him closely to speak up about their relationship with him.
