Speaking on the movie industry generally, Albert frowned at the act of engaging in sex-for-roles by some top directors and producers, making it known that it is creating a bad impression about the Nigerian movie industry
”It’s true that some producers, directors sleep with upcoming actresses for roles, I have never done it before but it is a very wrong thing to do. I will be lying if I say it isn’t true. It started a longtime ago and it’s already looking like it won’t stop but I want to urge my colleagues to work with their conscience because it doesn’t speak well of our movie industry”
Continuing, He spoke on the piracy issue that has been affecting the movie industry generally and pleaded with the government to work on it so producers can enjoy the fruit of their labour.
”On piracy, the government just need to help us fight it, they need to do more so producers can eat the fruit of their labor”
