In recent times, allegations of sex-for-role, particularly in the movie industry, have continued to dominate discussions on social media.

Speaking with NAN on Saturday, the skit maker said such allegations should not be swept under the carpet.

“Absolutely disgusting, absolutely abominable act, I’ve always spoken against it, even before I attained this position being a public figure,” he said.

“I have kicked against it, I have series of tweets against it, I have lots of content to speak against it, it is highly disrespectful and highly degrading, it reeks of how much we have lost touch with humanity.

“People should get roles and jobs based on competence, based on the fact that they are able to deliver. How many people will you sleep with?”

He added that there should be consequences for such actions rather that turning a blind eye to it.

“There should be consequences for reprehensible behaviour to do better. If not, if they are found guilty, I want to believe there are appropriate punishment to address this,” he added.

“And it cuts across, it’s not just sex, somebody will ask you to go and bring money for job, if they have money will they be looking for jobs, we shouldn’t ruin the life of others too.”

Mr Macaroni also advised fast-rising artistes to stay true to themselves and remain consistent in chasing their dreams.

“For such up and coming artiste, take a look at Mr Macaroni, I will advise you to look at my life and my journey, success doesn’t come once,” he said.

“I started acting as far back as 2012 or even 2010, but by God’s grace, people started to know me in 2019, don’t be in a hurry.

“Time and chance happens to all man, continue with your journey, success will not come to you on a platter of gold, you have to work for it.

“Don’t believe that you have to sell your body or do anything inappropriate to get to that height, work hard and keep believing, by God’s grace you will get to desired height.”
