King Tonto in her comments to ‘sex for roles manace’ disclosed;

 “It’ is very rampant in the industry. I always say my situation was different because the industry actually needed me. We didn’t have many leading actresses then, apart from me and Mercy Johnson. I won’t say I was rude; I would rather say I was principled, so they couldn’t bring such offers to me”.

She added;

“I never went for auditions because they knew I was so good. I probably went for auditions once or twice, when they asked me to come and just show my face. It was different for me. I think the new generation of actors needs to work on themselves. There are a lot of people who can act but there are a few people who can act exceptionally.”

Tonto Dikeh then defended producers over accusations that they sleep with girls for movie roles.

she said;

“We keep blaming these men but sometimes, the women actually offer themselves. I know of a producer in Asaba (Delta State) who used to receive over 5,000 messages from young ladies. He was one of the people who helped me in the industry.”
