Actor Yemi Solade has denied the allegation of sexual propositioning levelled against him by a woman named Dolapo Lawal.
The lady had called out the filmmaker on Instagram, saying he asked for sex in return for a movie role.
She said the incident took place some years ago when she still had the zeal to become an actor, adding that her experience changed her perception of Nollywood.
The actor waved off the allegations saying, “I need not dwell on this nuisance value gist”.
Solade told Lawal that famous actresses like Genevieve Nnaji, Funke Akindele and Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde did not become celebrities by making such allegations.
This is coming barely a day after former self-confessed wannabe actress Enny Gold accused filmmaker Yomi Fabiyi of demanding for sex in return for a movie role.
Gold said she met the filmmaker nine years ago when acting was her passion.
She wrote: “I remember my encounter with him nine years ago when I was so passionate about acting. I was happy when I met him as he promised that he will feature me in a movie that very day.
“I was so excited, I quickly called my people that I won’t be coming home. That I would be on location. Only for him to tell me we won’t be sleeping in separate rooms when on location.
“He said we have to sleep together and he would have sex with me before he can feature me.
“He said it is a normal thing for actresses. I told him I couldn’t do it and he dropped me off in the middle of the road in Ketu.
“I cried till I got home.”
The filmmaker denied the allegations in a series of posts via his Instagram page saying, “these ones have been watching CNN lately”.
You all will be surprised to know that a very very close person is even behind all this and other fake accounts and proxies. She has been an enemy for long, snitching since I can remember despite all but all I have for all these logba lagidis is FORGIVENESS. Mo juwon lo, egbe baba won lemi n se. I don't dignify everybody with a response. Can u imagine, you agreed to sleep over and I will now bother myself with asking you if you will sleep with me. That 9yrs ago I never sure of getting a room without being paired let alone someone following me. Another big lie is that I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO DRIVE LET ALONE OWN A CAR 9YEARS AGO. Awon were. I will respond formally to genuine allegations. NOW NA THEM THEY GIVE PERSON ATTENTION UNSOLICITED. These ones have been watchin CNN lately.
