The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), an umbrella organization that regulates and represents the interests of film actors in Nigeria and abroad, has launched a campaign to combat bisexual harassment, rape, and molestation in Nollywood, encouraging any actor who has been sexually abused to come forward and speak out, and promising to investigate any case brought to their attention.
In an Instagram post, the guild’s national president, Emeka Rollas, who spoke on behalf of the guild, provided contact addresses for anyone who wanted to file a complaint.
“The issue of sex for roles, molestations and rape by both gays and bisexuals has become alarming in Nollywood.
‘Following an outburst on Twitter a few weeks ago, bothering on accusations and counter-accusations against some male producers whose sexuality are questionable had prompted the Guild to begin investigation.
“To get to the root of this, we are calling on all sexually abused or molested persons to send in reports to this emails: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com ” Emeka posted.
The statement didn’t say who the guild was referring to.
I have no opinion on this; all I can say is that I hope they follow through.
