Veteran Nigerian actor, Deji Aderemi has posited that it is a normal phenomenon for actors and actresses to sleep with colleague stakeholders in the industry.

Deji Aderemi who spoke at the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Lagos where embattled actor, Baba Ijesha was arraigned for defiling a minor and granted a bail of 2million naira boldly situated that there is no successful actor and actress who can beat their chest and say they never slept with someone in the industry before.

He said;

‘I came to court because they said somebody slept with someone. This is a normal thing in our industry. Even you reporters, would you say you do not sleep with each other? It is something that happens every day in the industry. If this person has done something wrong, they should reprimand him rather than laying false accusations on him.

There is no successful female actor that would say that she has not been slept with in the industry before.

They now planned for him. This issue hurts so many people. I know it will never be well with them. They turned another person’s child into a prisoner. Because of what? They laid a false allegation against him.

I came to the proceedings today to come and learn from it to learn life lessons. These are the same people that he has eaten with before. How come they are now laying such an allegation on him.

Since I started acting, I have never heard of such a thing before. It isn’t like this thing doesn’t happen but I am surprised it is going to court.”
