Name Producers Trading Roles For Sex – Movie Producer Challenges Ozokwor

ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – Emerging movie producer, Mr. Desmond Utomwen, has challenged veteran actress, Patience Ozokwor to name the producers accused of demanding for sex from young female actresses before handing them roles in movies.

Utomwen, who stated this while speaking to journalists in Abuja, said it was pertinent for anybody with verifiable information about the much rumoured sex boom in Nollywood to step up and make the information public as part of the steps to ensure sanity in the Nigeria Movie Industry.

Ozokwor had reportedly in an exclusive interview with a tabloid accused movie producers of sexually abusing young girls.

“Things are not working the way they ought to because producers are messing up. Some go as far as sleeping with young girls before giving them roles,” the veteran actress reportedly said.

However, Utomwen, who recently added the much celebrated short film: “Shared” to the list of his works maintained that such a blanket accusation by Ozokwor puts the integrity of producers in the country to question and portrays them as coquettish. This, according to Utomwen is an unfair statement to the decent fold and is unacceptable.

“If it is true that the respected actress made such a statement, I think the least she can do now is to substantiate same. I don’t subscribe to wild allegations. While I am not defending the supposed “unscrupulous producers” should there be any, I believe the allegations by Ozokwor, if substantiated will help the sanitisation process of the Nigeria movie industry,” Utomwen stated.
