Actress, Jennifer Ike says, not all producers are bad, as she speaks on sexual harassment in Nollywood
By Rita Chioma,
While others are calling out different movie producers for sexual harassment and somewhat exploitation, budding actress, Jennifer Ike has pleaded for fairness in judging the male producers as not all of them are bad eggs in Nollywood.
“Yes, there is sexual harassment in the industry but one thing is sure, everybody is not the same. I have come across the good ones and also the bad ones,” she told Allure Vanguard.
When asked how she finds time for her boyfriend as she often moves from one movie location to another, the script interpreter revealed that for now, her relationship is suffering and in a state of distractions but her man understands.
Recalling her journey to Nollywood, Ms Ike said: “I began after I graduated from school in 2014. Then in 2015, I moved to Asaba for a fresh start. While I was there I realized Asaba is not the right place for a new start, because when you know the kind of life you what to live you should also know where to live it, that was what I told myself.
So, in 2016 I relocated to Lagos. I started going to auditions in order to get job and also to acquaint myself. It wasn’t an easy one, but the truth is coming to Lagos is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
