Popular Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels has asserted that the Nigerian movie industry is a danger zone for young girls.
The mother of two made this assertion in a video she shared on her Instagram page while sharing her encounter with a 14-year-old makeup artist she recently met on a movie set.
According to her, after engaging the little girl, the 14-year-old confessed to usually passing the nights with different people in their hotel rooms, some of whom take advantage of her.
Regina said she was very concerned for the little girl, as she also joined the industry as a young girl and is aware of the dangers of the industry for a child.
Regina, who declared Nollywood a danger zone, recalled how, as a child in the industry, her mother and actress Rita Daniels shielded her from being sexually molested by film directors.
She said that after she listened to the girl’s plight, she enrolled her in a boarding school in Delta State and was surprised to see how well she did in her entrance exam.
Regina berated her colleagues, who had previously turned a blind eye to the girl, and pleaded with them to, from now on, stand against child labor.
She noted that she has also vowed to fight against any movie producer who casts young children in their films.
Sharing the video on her Instagram page, she wrote, “DISCLAIMER!! This goes to the celebrities and movie producers. Please say NO to child Labour? And keep the industry secure.”
