Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson has alleged that some movie producers demanded sex from her in exchange for movie roles.
While this is no news in the Ghanaian movie industry, she revealed that she didn’t succumb to these pressures, as she knows her worth.
She lamented that sex for role is a widespread canker that has eaten into the movie industry over the years across the world.
“It happens a lot in the industry. It’s quite a controversial question but you know I’ve met producers on production sets and they’ve tried to make a few advances here and there,” Yvonne Nelson told the BBC in an interview that was aired on Thursday March 8, 2018.
“My thing is that if somebody wants to do that, just walk away because I know my value, I know what I bring to the table, I know that hey, you called me for the job and I know I can nail it so if you know that you want something in exchange, I’m sorry,” she said.
Ghanaian actress, model, film producer and entrepreneur Yvonne Nelson has starred in about 100 movies including Princess Tyra, House of Go, If Tomorrow Never Comes and Any Other Monday.
