It Has Been “No Sex No Role” All The Way In Nollywood – Charity Nnaji

Actress, Charity Nnaji, attracted some flak when she took to social media during the week to state that “being a female celebrity is more like advanced prostitution”. Many felt her comment was uncharitable to hardworking women in the entertainment industry.

However, in an interview with Saturday Beats, Nnaji stood by her words, stating, “It is the order of the day in Nollywood and they (filmmakers) have even upgraded. Sometimes, they would promise one a role, have s£x with one, collect one’s money, then give one the script of a movie that has already been shot. It is that bad in Nollywood. Young girls who are desperate to be famous are usually taken advantage of.”

The actress also stated that her controversial Instagram post was triggered by her findings on the scandal between another actress, Tonto Dikeh, and her ex-lover, Prince Kpokpogiri.

She said, “What actually triggered the post was the voice note I listened to on my colleague, Tonto Dike’s Instagram page. The person she was having the conversation with, Merit, is a close friend and I called the person to find out what led to the voice note. I found out that almost all the girls mentioned in the voice note had slept with Prince Kpokpogri. Yet, those are the same people that pretend a lot. They claim to be building careers but are actually into ‘runs’ (prostitution) behind closed doors. After listening to that voice note and getting more information from Merit, it dawned on me that this (being an actress) is more like advanced prostitution.”

Though many have dismissed her comments, saying she only made such statements to gain online popularity, Nnaji made it clear that was not the first time she would make such a controversial statement, and that it sometimes affected her getting roles in movies.

She said, “When people say I’m chasing clout by making statements like these, does that mean because I am an actress I can’t have my own opinions or air my views? Things don’t work that way. That is why many people die in silence.

“They (people in the movie industry) have never liked me because I say it the way it is. I am not a clout chaser and I did not make that statement because I want to gain popularity. I only commented on a trending issue. I don’t talk just because I want to open my mouth. I try to find out about issues before summarising them on my page.”

EndSARS: Uber Driver, Adedotun Clement Sues Lagos Government For N500m

An Uber Driver, Adedotun Clement, has dragged the Lagos state government to Court for N500 million in Damages after he was gruesomely assaulted and beaten by Police officers and officials of the Lagos State Neighbourhood Watch (LSNC).

Clement was seen in already viral footage, wailing and crying as police officers pepper sprayed and beat him up before forcefully hauling him into a waiting van. Below is a full statement from Clement’s lawyer, Inibehe Effiong;

“UBER DRIVER ASSAULTED DURING ENDSARS MEMORIAL PROTEST DEMANDS N500M COMPENSATION FOR VIOLATION OF HIS RIGHTS, SEIZURE AND DESTRUCTION OF HIS VEHICLE AND PROSECUTION OF CULPRITS”

“We have written to the Lagos State Government through the Attorney General of Lagos State to demand payment of the sum of N500,000,000 (Five Hundred Million Naira) as compensation to Mr. Adedotun Clement for the gross violation of his fundamental rights to dignity of the human person, personal liberty and property and for the deprivation of his source of livelihood and the destruction of his vehicle.”

“Adedotun Clement is the innocent Uber driver that was assaulted by some officers of the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps (LNSC) and Nigeria Police Force during the first anniversary of the #EndSARS protest at Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos.”

“In addition to payment of monetary compensation, we also demanded that disciplinary measures be taken against the culprits who assaulted Adedotun, and that they should be prosecuted in court in line with the Anti-Torture Act and the Criminal Law of Lagos State.”

“Also, we are equally demanding a written apology from the state government.”

“It should be noted that the vehicle of Mr. Adedotun has been returned but in a bad condition. The agents of the state government broke and damaged the front windscreen of his Toyota Corolla. The vehicle was in good condition before it was towed away on Wednesday, 20th October, 2021. But upon reaching where the vehicle was taken to on Friday, 22nd October, 2021, Adedotun saw the destruction done to his vehicle by agents of the state government.”

“The implication is that he cannot use the vehicle to earn a living until it is repaired.”

“My attention has been drawn to the public statement by the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency (LNSA) wherein it is stated that two officers of the agency were subjected to orderly room trial, found guilty of assault and general unruly behaviour and suspended for two months.”

“While we commend the Lagos State Government for admitting that the conduct of its agents was criminal and unprofessional, we find the two months suspension meted on the two officers grossly insufficient and unacceptable. It is not a deterrence. The officers should be dismissed and diligently prosecuted in a court of law to serve as a deterrence to others.”

“Finally, we are expecting the Lagos State Government to respond to our modest demands within 48 hours or we will have no other option but to commence legal proceedings to seek redress for Adedotun.”
