Popular Nigerian skit maker and comedian, Debo Adedayo, known as Mr. Macaroni has said that movie actors and directors who demand sex for roles should be investigated and brought to book.
Lately, there have been conversations about how some movie directors and producers demand sex from actresses before giving them roles in their movies
During an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mr. Macaroni said the allegations about sex for roles should not be swept under the carpet but should be investigated so the culprit can be brought to book.
He said: “Absolutely disgusting, absolutely abominable act, I’ve always spoken against it, even before I attained this position being a public figure.
“I have kicked against it, I have a series of tweets against it, I have lots of content to speak against it, it is highly disrespectful and highly degrading, it reeks of how much we have lost touch with humanity.
“People should get roles and jobs based on competence, based on the fact that they are able to deliver. How many people will you sleep with?”
“There should be consequences for reprehensible behavior to do better. If not, if they are found guilty, I want to believe there are appropriate punishments to address this.
“And it cuts across, it’s not just sex, somebody will ask you to go and bring money for the job, if they have money will they be looking for jobs, we shouldn’t ruin the lives of others too,” Macaroni said.
For such up an coming artiste, take a look at Mr. Macaroni, I will advise you to look at my life and my journey, success doesn’t come once.
“I started acting as far back as 2012 or even 2010, but by God’s grace, people started to know me in 2019, don’t be in a hurry.
“Time and chance happen to all man, continue with your journey, success will not come to you on a platter of gold, you have to work for it.
“Don’t believe that you have to sell your body or do anything inappropriate to get to that height, work hard and keep believing, by God’s grace you will get to the desired height,” he said.
