ROK's Mary Njoku Knows About Sexual Harrassment In Nollywood
Sexual harassment is real in Nollywood.
Nollywood actress, and CEO of ROK Studios, Mary Remmy Njoku has pointed this out in a recent Instagram post.
The mother-of-three was curious to know if Nigerians have another definition of sexual harassment based on her experience on a movie set.
“I was standing with a female producer who was wearing leggings with a camel toe, and a very prominent male producer walked past and said ‘I dey see your Virgina (in pidgin) if I hol am en, I go F.... am tire.?? On the streets of Lagos! “
The ROK Studios boss said she was offended by his comments.
“I wanted to say something, but the Lady just said, 'no mind am the man sabi talk rubbish' and she immediately changed the topic like nothing happened. I couldn't cry more than the bereaved. But I am sad. Biko isn't this sexual harassment? Doesn't she know? Or its just accepted?" she asked.
