Nollywood actress Mercy Macjoe recently revealed that film producers make s*xual advances at her. The curvy actress made the reveal during an interview with The Sun Newspaper.
“In this generation, people would want to give something for nothing, so I always say it is not a do or die thing. If somebody says he wants to give you this for something, it’s your decision. It doesn’t just happen in this industry, it happens in almost every other industry. People want to take advantage of women. So, if you want to do it or not, it’s up to you. But for me, I didn’t do it. I didn’t sleep with anybody for roles. So, I will say get down with somebody if you want to, but let it not be for roles. These things happen. You know I am a pretty girl. Some producers said they wanted to get down with me, but I refused.”

She also revealed that her most embarrassing moment was a bus experience she had just two years into acting.
“Two years after I started acting in 2011, I had not bought a car; I was still moving around in public transport. So, one day, I was in a bus and the conductor said, ‘somebody has paid for you’. I turned and looked around, but I couldn’t recognise anybody in the bus. When I got down, a woman also came down and said: ‘I love you so much, I’ve watched your movies’. It was very embarrassing. I lied and said it wasn’t me, but my voice gave me away. She was so sure that it was me because I have a voice that I can’t deny. You know, once people see you on TV, they think you are super-rich. But there I was in a (commercial) bus.” She said.
