while speaking on the widespread allegations of $exual assault on upcoming actresses in an interview with HipTV, Popular actress, Uche Jombo, revealed that she was once a victim of the abuse.
The respected filmmaker said;
“I’ve been in that kind of situation twice during my starting days,” she said. “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 $ex).
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, the 39-year-old actress said,
“It is personal integrity. In my days, we move on when we’re denied opportunities for refusing to give in to s#xual demands.
Sometimes, it’s your individual strength, drive and process that matters. What takes some six months to accomplish might take others six years. Are you ready to wait for your time or you just want a shortcut that leads to no long-lasting opportunity? If you want the shortcut, chances are that there are people willing to give it.”
