Nollywood might be on the verge of a #MeToo movement considering the brewing accusations in the wake of the online protest against gender based violence.
On Wednesday, June 3, sexual assault allegations were levelled against Nollywood director, Victor Okpala via Instagram by an upcoming actor, Oshevire Divine.
Divine shared screenshots of a conversation with the filmmaker who suggested that she offers her body in exchange for film roles.
“I was going to keep quiet about this..but why should I?this isn’t a normal thing and shouldn’t be considered as a normal act at all”, Divine wrote. “This is a chat between me and a Nollywood movie producer&director.I have to voice out on this matter..this is wrecking the image of Nollywood.
