In a recent interview Omoni Oboli who premiered her movie 'Being Mrs. Elliot' in Aso Villa and got a hand shake from Mr. President talked about sexual harasment in nollywood, read her views on the issue below;
Did you have any fear of being accepted back after a 10-year break from acting and what were the difficulties you encountered coming back to the movie industry?
I didn’t have any fears when I was coming back, but when I got in, I realised I should have those fears because nobody remembers you from 10 years before. When I got back I was the new girl, whether I liked it or not, and nobody wanted the new girl; everybody had their position and they wanted it to stay that way. So, it was a struggle trying to get back in and I would go to some of the people I knew in the industry, but a lot of them weren’t as relevant as before or they just weren’t doing it anymore. I met Emem Isong, I met Lancelot (Imasuen) who I’ve known before and we got to do one or two movies together, and then I did Kunle Afolayan’sThe Figurine and it was like, ‘Boom! ‘Who is this girl, where has she been?’ And then,I did Anchor Baby and that was it, the rest is history.
