    NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS REGINA DANIELS SPEAKS UP AGAINST CHILD LABOUR IN THE MOVIE INDUSTRY

    Nollywood actress and producer who is married to Ned Nwoke, a billionaire and politician have cried against employing minors for certain roles in the movie industry.

    In a video shared on her Instagram page, Regina who also began her career as a child actress spoke about the exploitation of young girls and how it can negatively affect their mental and physical well-being.

    She recounted the story of a young girl she met on a movie set who revealed that her parents were based in Port Harcourt and she had left home to work in Delta.

    Regina said the girl narrated how she had slept in a variety of hotels with both male and female guests and that she occasionally faced harassment from them.

    The actress slammed her colleagues and questioned if they were stupid as the young girl revealed to her that she has worked with certain popular celebrities.

    Regina said that she understands how dangerous the industry is for women, and she was only spared to a certain level because of the presence and influence of her mother, Rita Daniels.

    She said in parts, “There is something I want to share; it’s a story I wouldn’t like to share, but I have to because there are things that I can’t find an end to alone. It takes a collective effort. I met a young girl on a movie set; she said she was the make-up artist on set.

    “When I asked her why she isn’t in school, she said her parents are in Port Harcourt and told me she sleeps in different hotels. I could immediately feel she was losing it. I told her to go back to her parents and that I would sponsor her. She told me she has been working with different celebrities and crew members, and I began to wonder if these celebrities are useless.

    “Most of these movie producers end up sleeping with such ladies. I took her to one of the best schools in Delta State. Society is bad as it is, and we know that young girls are at the messy bottom of society (the underprivileged ones). I urge other celebrities to not encourage child labor.”
