'if we really really check out, we dey mess up' - Actor, Seun Ajayi has a few words to say about rape and sexual harassment
In the midst of the rising calls against rape and gender-based violence, actor, Seun Ajayi has come forward with a few words.

He spoke about his experience with sexual assault on a movie set while describing a particular instance that he witnessed.

He spoke about how he witnessed a man who was sexually harassing an actress on set and didn’t stop even after several warnings by the people on set until he received a letter from the lady’s lawyer.

He shared a video on his Instagram page captioned, ‘Sexual harassment in Nollywood! My brothers let’s do better’ where he spoke about the issue.

“I went to sleep agitated and I woke up with my heart beating very fast because I could not wait to address this. 

“Many times I’ll see male colleagues harass ladies on set.

“There was one time I was on set and it was so bad and this guy was constantly commenting on this girl’s bum and groping her and everyone told him to stop. I told him to stop several times and he didn’t until he was officially written by the girl’s lawyer.

“Now, what tends to happen is that this goes on, but men stay silent. The men that know better, they stay silent.

“I urge you, my brothers, that the next time you see that kind of behaviour… it’s not only rape oh, it’s not only rape. To be inappropriate with your language is harassment, it is sexual harassment.” he said in the video.
