Nollywood News: First it was sex for roles in Nollywood movies, where women are mostly the victims. Nothing concrete was done by the industry to tackle the issue. Now it has escalated to both sex and money for roles in Nigerian movies, where both women and men are equally victims. Nigeria Movie Network brings to your attention, what popular actor Mike Ezuruonye said about sex and money for roles in Nollywood, and how he handles his business when offered movie roles.

In a recent report by Daily Independent titled 'Nollywood Stars Differ On Sex for Role', Mike Ezuruonye was one of the actors who reacted to the shameful act. Mike described the sex for role development as a desperate move by fame seekers to be in the limelight at all cost.
Mike Ezu noted that in the midst of this development, up and coming actors are not ready to develop themselves in the craft; rather they are after the fame.
Wonderboy Mike also explained that the reason it looks as if he was no more in the industry was that he selects the scripts that are brought to his table so as not to offend his fans. Mike said, in quote:
"I've been very selective with the movies I feature in now. You'll get to a level you have to be careful about the kind of roles and movies you accept and still not offend your fans because you owe them a lot of allegiance."
"So, I believe I should be acting in movies that will put me in a better light and help take my career forward to the next level," Mike said.
On a popular Nollywood Community group on Facebook, up and coming actors (or wannabes) are constantly seeking how to break into the booming Nigerian film industry--colloquially called Nollywood. How does Nollywood and Actors Guild of Nigeria ensure aspiring actors don't fall prey to film-makers who charge sex or money to star in their movies?
Nollywood actors and AGN should come out and give their best advice on how aspiring Nollywood actors can avoid getting scammed by crooked film-makers scheming on social media, those organizing fake auditions, and those demanding sex or money for roles.
And those who were brave or stupid enough to pay their way through sex or money--to get movie roles in Nollywood; let them come (anonymously) and let us know on Nigeria Movie Network; if it in fact paid off or not. Or, is it wrong to ask these questions? Share your thoughts on Nigeria Movie Network!
