‘It Is Highly Disrespectful’ – Mr Macaroni Speaks On ‘S3x For Roles’ In Entertainment Industry
Nigerian comedian cum actor, Debo Adebayo popularly called Mr Macoroni has described ‘sex for roles’ in the entertainment industry as highly disrespectful and degrading.
The comedian in a recent interview kicked against the trend stating that anyone found guilty should be punished.
The actor said people should get roles and jobs based on competence and the fact that they can deliver.
Macaroni also advised upcoming stars to work hard and be patient because success will not come on a platter of gold.
He said: ”I’ve always spoken against it, even before I attained this position being a public figure. I have kicked against it, I have a series of tweets against it, and I have lots of content to speak against it, it is highly disrespectful and highly degrading, and it reeks of how much we have lost touch with humanity.
“People should get roles and jobs based on competence, based on the fact that they can deliver. How many people will you sleep with?
“There should be consequences for reprehensible behaviour to do better. If not, if they are found guilty, I want to believe there are appropriate punishments to address this.
“And it cuts across, it’s not just sex, somebody will ask you to go and bring money for a job; if they have money will they be looking for jobs, we shouldn’t ruin the lives of others too.
“For such up-and-coming artiste, take a look at Mr Macaroni, I will advise you to look at my life and my journey, success doesn’t come once.
“I started acting as far back as 2012 or even 2010, but by God’s grace, people started to know me in 2019, don’t be in a hurry.
“Time and chance happen to all man, continue with your journey, success will not come to you on a platter of gold, you have to work for it.
“Don’t believe that you have to sell your body or do anything inappropriate to get to that height, work hard and keep believing, by God’s grace you will get to the desired height.”
