I left the movie industry because some people want to sleep with me- Veteran Jumoke George

Veteran actress Jumoke George reveals that she wasn’t given roles for 14 years because she refused to sleep around with men in the movie industry.

Jumoke George in a recent interview with Punch said:

I did not leave (the industry) of my own volition. Some people in the industry wanted to sleep with me and I stood my ground that I would not do that with anyone in that sector. Because of that, I was not used or called for acting jobs for 14 years.

She further said:

Kazeem Afolayan (Epsalum Movies) engaged Okiki Afolayan, a movie director, and it was Okiki, who started pushing jobs my way when he realised how good I was, and I told him the reason for my absence from the industry.

Speaking about broadcasting, she said:

I have plans to still do more in that area. The programme I will like to bring back is Gele O Dun, because it is educational and centres on how lovers can meet, and what couples should do together to live in peace.

Speaking about fame, she said:

Fame has its price and if managed properly, there is no door it cannot open for one.
