Bolaji Ogunmola, an actress, has stated that sexual scenes in films are sometimes necessary in order to tell the story better.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “I think it is needed sometimes to drive home certain aspects of the character portrayed. One cannot be telling stories about prostitutes or strippers, and they would be fully clothed. If the stories requires it; then, let them show it. When a film is very good, the sexual scenes are not the first thing people would remember. It would be about how the film made them feel.”
Ogunmola who has been enjoying rave reviews for her role in the movie, ‘Before Valentines’ said, “The reception the movie has enjoyed has been extremely humbling and very exciting. For one’s work to resonate with people is something to be thankful for. My experience playing ‘Chika’ was wonderful. I literally just had to ‘channel’ a friend I knew in university who was exactly like the character. I remember reading the script and I said I wanted to play it like that. I think everyone knows or has experienced a Chika before; maybe without the drama but we all know a Christian sister who is literally married to Jesus.”
