Veteran actor, Chiwetalu Agu , has said that there are incidents of sexual harassment ineach profession , no longer just Nollywood . He instructed Sunday Scoop , “Sexual abusetakes place in each profession , whether it ismedicine or law . We have also heard oflecturers who demand for sex from their students so as to award them high scores . Even in government circles , it happens . Itimpacts all strata of society. It is notordinary to Nollywood at all . ”
Agu additionally argued that Nollywood didnow not want the government’ s money butproper shape to thrive . He said , “I turned into a part of the movie, Living in Bondage, which is appeared as the begin of Nollywood , so I recognise pretty a lot aboutthe enterprise . We don ’t want cash from the authorities to produce movies. What wewant from the authorities is accolades due to the fact what we’re doing is an orientation and reorientation of society. We have beencapable of attract a variety of nice exposureto the country . A former President , Goodluck Jonathan , once told more than one us ( actors) that a few overseas leadersregularly requested him approximatelyhuman beings like me , Genevieve Nnaji and Jim Iyke . That turned into why he gave theindustry a provide of N3 bn . We didn ’t evenrecognise we had made such an impactabroad . The fund turned into managedthrough the then Minister of Finance , Ngozi Okonjo -Iweala . Filmmakers then could get admission to cash to finance their productions and also have a look at in movieschools across the world .”
He added , “Businessmen surely helped to establish and stabilise Nollywood . We by no means lacked sponsorship from thosehumans . What we actually need ( from thegovernment ) are things like movie villagesin which we can have large projects. Most times , every time we need to shoot epic scenes that require huge crowds , we shouldgo to interior places in which we wouldn ’t even have right accommodation . Theygovernment can establish such things asthat for us . That way , we’d have a one-prevent community in which there could bethe entirety we need inclusive of hotels ,shops and health facilities . Five years into President Muhammadu Buhari ’s two- termtenure , and he doesn ’t even appear toobserve us . I don ’t think it’s miles properfor them ( authorities ) not to understand us . They must ask us the regions where wewant help. In a few other countries, governments support their creative industryin unique ways .”
