Directors don't demand sex before giving movie roles - Kwaku Twumasi

Outstanding movie actor and director, Kwaku Twumasi has disputed allegations from some female actresses who say some movie directors demand sex before landing them a role as false and should not be given attention.

According to Mr Twumasi, he has never encountered such in his twenty years experience in the film industry and that he believes those allegations are just hearsays and fabricated, he told

"I don't think a director will intimidate someone with demand for sex before a role. Those people use such allegations to save face after losing a tough competition from others. We will urge you not to give those people attention. It's even a disgrace to those who have had their ways through successfully. Does that mean they also entered through the same means? I have never encountered such in my twenty years experience in the film industry."

Allegations by some female actresses have it that some movie directors demand sex from them in exchange for movie roles, which some claim that the more qualified ones are dropped for the inexperience who will give in, hence a reason for poor performance in the industry.
