Big Brother Naija reality star and actress Bamike Olawunmi, popularly known as Bambam, has said the issue of ‘sex for roles’ in the Nigerian movie industry is a “scam”.

According to her, filmmakers used it to exploit overzealous young actresses and often end reneging on their promises of giving them major roles after sleeping with them.

Speaking in the latest episode of the Secrets Behind the Scenes podcast, Bambam recalled how a producer gave her keys to his hotel room after casting her in a cameo role.

She urged aspiring actresses not to fall prey of ‘sex for roles’, stressing that it is not worth it.

She said, “Sex for roles is a scam. It’s not worth it. Some of them [victims] what they are paying them at the end of that production is not more than N50,000, N100,000. Don’t be deceived o! It’s a lie. It [sex for role] is a scam.

“The one that I did waka pass that dem give me N5,000 and the guy [filmmaker] was giving me his hotel room key to hold. Ah! I don’t want to mention names.”
