I opted acting with Yoruba actors because it’s sex for roles with English nollywood – Regina Chukwu

Popular Nollywood star, Regina Chukwu has revealed why she prefers acting with Yoruba actors to English and Igbo colleagues.

The Igbo born star actress told Sunday Punch she opted for the Yoruba genre of the Nollywood because, in the English sector, a lot of people would want to sleep with you before giving roles.

She added that unlike the Yoruba actors, the English actors don’t welcome new and budding actors and actresses.

Regina said; “even though I am Igbo, I act mostly Yoruba movies. I actually speak Yoruba more fluently than my native language. When I first told my late husband, I wanted to join the movie industry, he said I would be acting English movies.

“However, at the time I decided to join the industry, the person who introduced me was a Yoruba actor. Even when I tried to get close to the English movie producers, they weren’t as welcoming as the Yoruba people.

“The Yoruba people’s structure is stronger. In the English sector, a lot of people would want to sleep with you before giving you roles.”

Recall that veteran Nigerian actress, Joke Silva recently said there are too much of horrific stories of sex demands in Nollywood.

The 56-year-old screen goddess said this after the launch of ‘Disowned’, a book by Nina Anyianuka about sexual abuse and harassment, early April at Terra Kulture in Lagos.

She added that the pressure on young actresses to offer sexual favours is very high and disturbing.
