Nollywood actor and fast rising critic,Uche Maduagwu alleges that most Nollywood actresses practice the act of casting couch “trading sex for movie roles”.In his words
“ Some things are just so unbelievable and irritating . Someone told me how she had the shock of her life on a movie set in Enugu . According to her , a particular up – and -coming actress was supposed to take a role in the movie . She had rehearsed her lines and was ready for the shooting .
“ Suddenly a popular Nollywood actress just walked in and ordered the budding actress to drop the script , claiming that she had been given the role . That was how she forcefully collected the script from the emerging actress . Imagine . I felt bad when I heard this story. Imagine the shame and the psychological pain that the younger actress must have experienced just because one fake celebrity and star actress went through the back door to get the lead role . ”
