Well known Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, has revealed that the Nigerian movie industry is not a safe space for children to work in.

Condemning the employment of young girls for labour in the movie industry, the young actress made known that she had met a 14-year-old working as a makeup artiste, moving from set to set with no parental guidance or guardian.

In the words of Regina, ‘the young girl wore “a short skirt, crop top” and surprisingly worked under another young guy on the movie set as a make-up artist – without being paid.’’

She noted that the young girl mentioned the name of some celebrities she had worked on set with, leaving her to question why those colleagues did not question why this was a minor working on set or staging an intervention.

Regina advised her fellow actors and actresses not to turn a blind eye and condemn producers and other filmmakers who recruits young ones on set. The actress emphasized that she has vowed to always fight against any movie producer who employs young kids for movie roles.
