Popularly known as Mama G, Nigerian veteran actress Patience Ozokwor has revealed what should be done to actors found guilty of rape.

Recall, that Actress Sylvia Oluchi hours ago, accused veteran movie director, Lancelot Imasuen, of sexually assaulting her, during a film shoot in 2008.

Reacting, Patience Ozokwor in a chat with Sunday scoop said those involved in such acts should be banned from the industry.

“Yes (they should be banned) because they cannot represent us as an industry. The guilds in the industry have disciplinary committees and they won’t allow such people to stay. There is a standard punishment that is to be meted out to anyone found guilty of such act.

“It is heartbreaking whenever I hear that things like that happen in the entertainment industry because they (entertainers) have access to whatever they want. There is no girl they desire and approach that would not follow them, even when they (girls) know that some of them are married. Forcing a girl into (the act) is just stupid. My heart is breaking as you are telling me that it happens in the industry because I don’t go on social media anymore.” she stated.

Handing down advice for the womenfolk, she said, “Girls should stop dressing provocatively. It seems like they can’t do without skimpy wear. That was one of the reasons I shut down my boutique because if one doesn’t sell skimpy clothes, people would not buy.

However, people with good background would not do that because they know it would bring shame to their families. Some actresses think that when they dress that way, they would get roles but it is not true. Talent comes first. It is on set that one would be given the kind of dress one is to wear, so that one can properly portray the character one is playing.

Many girls come in (the industry) and they want to make it by all means, so they fall into the wrong hands. Even some of the people they think are directors may not be professional directors. Real directors don’t have time to mess around like that.

“Ladies should take it easy. Becoming a star is not the ultimate. When I started my career, I didn’t know that there was anything like stardom. I was just doing what I enjoyed and it has turned out to be what it is today.

“Some parents even dress their children in skimpy clothes, saying they want to prepare them to be stars. Whenever they meet any one that promises to turn their children to stars, they would quickly hand them over to the person.

    that’s a SEXIST way to think. No one tells these “men” to not go out shirtless because they’ll be raped. So why is the PRESSURE ALWAYS ON WOMEN???
    In the article she also said that some girls would still follow the men knowing they are married…so why are you blaming the girls who owe no allegiance to the wives of the rapists instead of the “producers” WHO ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE A COMMITMENT TO THEIR WIFE????
    so sad smh‍♀️
    instead of her telling the “men” to have SELF CONTROL she tells us to “nOt wEar SkImpY tHinGs” as if the problem is from us…smh
    If the solution to rape is not wearing skimpy things then nuns would not be raped.
    I’ve lost all the respect I had for this woman
