Nollywood actor Kunle Remi recounts his experience with an anonymous popular entertainer who told him he couldn’t make it in the industry if he didn’t sleep with men.
Remi revealed this in an interview with OAP Nedu’s ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, where he revealed that the man told him he had to have sex with him to make it in the industry. He said he was introduced to the artist by a friend when he was at the University of Ibadan.
The artist then revealed to him that he had to pay dues to succeed in the industry.
In his words, “Before I got into the industry, a friend in U.I then when I was in U.I said there is one of his friends who is an entertainer, he can guide me into the entertainment industry.
“When I got there, this nigga started calling out names and started talking.
“He said why did you think you weren’t selected for the ultimate search, it’s because you haven’t paid your dues.”
He added: “He painted this picture like if I didn’t bend my ass, I wouldn’t make it.”
Describing the experience in more detail, he said: ” “This guy came downstairs with a candle and a jar of oil ‘cause he said I am virgin.
“I need to use the lubricant so it can be slippery.
“He said from there, he will connect me and I will be driving a Benz.”
Wow,that must have been shocking. Then again Kunle ,ou are one fine a## man so we can’t blame him. I wonder what the other guys on the Ultimate search show had to do.
