I Was A Victim Of Sexual Assault In Nollywood -Uche Jombo


Ace Nollywood actress and film maker, Uche Jombo has revealed that she was a victim of sexual assault during her entry days in Nollywood. The 39 -year-old actress made the disclosure in an interview with HIP TV while speaking on the wide spread allegation of sexual on up-coming actresses.
“I’ve been in that kind of situation twice during my starting days, I rehearsed for almost two weeks only to come next and find that someone else was reading my role because I declined the request to see me’ (for sex), I wept seriously, I was hurt, but four to five years later, I made it big”.
Explaining how she survived and maintained her stance at the time, Jombo said: “It is personal integrity, in my days we moved on when we are denied opportunities for refusing to give in to sexual demands sometimes, it is your individual strength, drive and process that matter what takes some people six months to accomplish might take others six years.
“Are you ready to wait for your time or you just want a short cut that leads to no long lasting opportunity? If you want the short cut, chances are there are people willing to give it” She said people who engage in such acts should be called out, explaining that this would force Nollywood recruiters and opportunity givers who indulge in such acts to be humans again”.
