Halima Abubakar, the actress, has alleged that some producers demand sex before giving roles in Nollywood.


The 36-year-old film star shared her opinion on sex-for-roles in the country’s movie industry during an interactive session with her fans on Saturday.

Halima said that was the reason she stopped featuring in Nigerian movies in the past few years.

In a flurry of tweets, Halima also disclosed that she has ventured into movie production.


The ‘White Hunters’ star said she initially took a break from Twitter so she can maintain focus on movie production.


“I left Twitter not Nollywood. I produce my own movies. I no get strength for sex,” she wrote.

“Taking a break is necessary. I have won all. I won’t be too hungry to ass lick, or belong to a group.

“Like I said before,I don’t have filter.i say the truth..I mean that’s me.”

An inquisitive Twitter user thereafter asked if producers demand sex before giving roles in Nollywood to which Halima answered affirmatively.




“Serious!! That means it is true that producers do demand sex from female actresses before casting them in movies. Our sisters are not safe,” the user wrote, while Halima responded, “So many yes.”

Her claim is coming a few weeks after Kanayo Kanayo, ace Nollywood actor, said people should not believe claims of sex-for-role in the film industry.

The actor had also claimed that a large number of up-and-coming actresses do not work hard to earn roles in Nollywood.
