Candy Bleakz admitted that it has not been easy in the industry, but understand what she wants, so she decided to stay committed to her craft and get what she wants through hardwork.

The rapper said since she had nothing sexual to offer influential men apart from her talent, it would require extra effort for her to become successful.

Popular Nigerian actress, Mercy Aigbe, earlier revealed that she almost dumped Nollywood after she became a victim of sexual harassment.

In an interview on ‘Your View’, she said a producer she approached to help her get into the movie industry tried to take advantage of her. Aigbe said she said he initially handed her a minor role for her after she passed auditions for his movie, but she protested.

She said; “I once met a producer in Surulere, and I expressed to him how much I would love to act. He told me he had an upcoming film, and invited me to his office for an audition. I passed three stages of the audition.

“After the last audition, I was given a minor role. I told him that was not the character I was auditioning for, and he replied that the director said he did not know me, and that was why he said I should be close to him (the producer).

“He had been making passes at me before then, but he did not come out clean to me until that day. He then stood up and tried to touch me. I was very upset, and I told him he could not do that to me, because I had earned the role.

“That was a huge insult to my person, and I thought if that was what it took to be an actress, I did not want to be an actress anymore. I tore the script and eventually left. On my way home, I cried because I had left a well-paying job to join Nollywood, and I was already a single mother at the time.”
