Nollywood actor, Chris Bassey has stated that homosexuality has displaced sex-for-role requests in the Nigerian movie industry.
In an interview with The Sun, the Cross River state entertainer said he believes that sex-for-roles are a thing of the past while homosexuality is the new vice.
“The industry is not the way it used to be because now the rate people engage in homosexuality is too high. But then, when a lady presents herself to a man and say ‘I want you to help me, this is what I can do’.
“There is a way a lady will present herself and the man will listen to her, but not when you want a role or someone to help you, you are going the other way round.
“Yes, sex-for-role happened in those days, but I believe not anymore. Gone are the days when you for had to sleep with someone to get a role, it doesn’t happen again. Even if it does, the percentage is very, very low.
“These days, you have directors that have their own academies, they want people to register under them and possibly from there, they can get roles. So, I don’t think sex-for-role is still happening.”
