Adeniyi said; “Sex for gigs in the entertainment industry is a tale as old as time. And, that doesn’t only apply to the female gender alone. Men are actually not left out. Also, it is not limited to the entertainment industry. It happens in all sectors where male and female coexist.

“In the entertainment industry, it is mostly a case of two consenting adults. Whatever advances thrown at one can either be rejected or accepted; it is solely dependent on the individual. If it is otherwise, then it becomes a case of force.”

Speaking on why she has not been active on the movie scene for some time, the actress she took a break because she wanted to explore the world, acquire more knowledge, and focus on her businesses and investments.

Adeniyi said although the entertainment industry has grown and advanced remarkably, she would still like to see that every talented person gets a level playing field.
