The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), the organization representing Nollywood actors, has begun a campaign to tackle sexual harassment, rape, and molestation in the industry, encouraging any actor who has been sexually assaulted to come out and speak out. They have promised to look into any complaints that are brought to their attention, and they are asking other parties to do the same.
Emeka Rollas, the guild’s national president, sent a statement on Instagram in which he offered contact information for anybody interested in filing 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 counteraccusations against some male producers whose sexuality are questionable had prompted the Guild to begin investigation.”
