A popular celeb promised to make me a star if I get in bed with him – Actor, Kunle Remi
Nollywood actor, Kunle Remi has recounted how a popular male entertainer promised to make him a rich and famous person in exchange for intimacy.
He said the person invited him to his house and said the only way he can grow in the industry is if he agrees to his request for them to sleep together.
Kunle narrated the incident during an episode of Frankly Speaking podcast with Nedu Wazobia and his co-hosts.
The actor who won season 7 edition of Gulder Ultimate Search, said the influential celebrity wanted to get down with him when they met.
In reaction to his interview, Don Jazzy asked Kunle to reveal the identity of the celeb so that up-and-coming entertainers can be saved from him.

Nollywood actor and media personality, Uti Nwachukwu has said money is not the major factor he considers when choosing which movie roles to accept.
He said what he considers the most before picking a script is the quality of the content and how it speaks to him.
The winner of Big Brother Africa season 4 stated this in an interview with the Punch, as he noted that acting is secondary for him because he loves hosting shows more.
Uti said; “I just cannot be in any movie. Firstly, I look at the quality of the script. Once I get the script that speaks to my heart, I will do it because I am not doing it for the money. My primary business is hosting events and shows. I love to host and I am also doing it to get paid.
“There is also a lot of dedication and discipline that is attached to movie making and for me, if I cannot do something close to perfection, I won’t do it at all. I need to be able to commit a number of weeks or possibly months to acting. When I am ready to settle and focus, I will accept scripts that are also rich because my everyday life is busy”.
Speaking on the growth of Nollywood, Uti said; “We have upped the stakes in Nollywood. I love the quality of movies that have been rolling out from the industry. Nigeria is improving entertainment-wise and I think audiences home and abroad have started to recognise our value and importance in the industry.
“It’s not just about Hollywood anymore, it is about Nollywood too. People are hungry for our content right now. Africa is the new frontier entertainment-wise. I am proud of my industry.”
