Actress Anee Icha reveals in an interview that she’s been sexually harassed in Nollywood
In an interview with Pulse, Nigerian actress Anee Icha, well known for her roles in Namaste Wahala (2020) and Castle & Castle (2018), spoke about her experiences with sexual harassment in the Nigerian film business.
She talked about her six-year acting career, as well as her experiences with sexual harassment and how she overcame peer pressure to submit to it.
I have come to a place in my own evolution as a person, that there are things that I will do and things that I will not do and I will own the things I do and I will not apologize for the things I do not do.
If I am not interested in you, you can come with anything on the planet earth, it is a matter of value for me because if I am giving myself to a person, there has to be something behind it and for me, it is deeper than fame, a phone. Even if it is just pleasure, pleasure is deeper than a material thing. So it is unfortunate that some women have to bend to that and they don’t feel like there is an alternative and I hope we come to a place where we realize that we have a duty over our bodies.
