Enigmatic singer, Adokiye Kyrian, is not just talented in singing, but also adept at talking her way into the heat of things. If she is not making something happening, something is happening about her. That is really what makes Adokiye controversial, or is it? It doesn’t matter because this Imo State delight doesn’t hide under any guise when she is put on the spot!
This time she chose to differ on what many would agree is a NORM in the movie industry.
According to her, there is no such thing as sexual harassment in Hollywood. She tells us that instead of blaming producers, and directors, whom we might have hitherto believed to be the main culprits, we should have a second thought.
In her exact words, during an interview with Vanguard:
There is nothing like sexual harassment. Don’t let any girl deceive you. No director, marketer, Producer or film maker would harass anybody sexually. Those girls saying it do so to get noticed by the directors, producers, marketers and the rest of them.
And some of them are not even good artists. The only way they thought they could get movie roles is to offer their body. When they get disappointed on account of their own inabilities to put up good performances at auditions, they come out crying that so and so have sexually harassed them. It is the order of the day among some wannabe actresses.
But those that are good at what they do get work and would not come out to tell you they have been sexually harassed.
Although harassment is everywhere, be it in Nollywood, in the offices, even in the music industry. It is the same story everywhere but it hardly what you would call sexual harassment. When two people fancy each other and decide to go for each other, I don’t think that qualifies as sexual harassment.
In fact, I think some girls are the ones harassing the film-makers sexually because they offer themselves to these people because of their lack of talent. If you ask me,I think a lot of girls should be educated on this issue of sexual harassment in Nollywood.
As always, she always carves a way to be different. The self professed virgin at 23 (not like it should be surprising, but it is) has given us a new insight into Nollywood, do you agree with her view?
