Famous Nigerian skit maker and comedian, Debo Adedayo, known as Mr. Macaroni, on Saturday said that reports of sex for roles should be investigated and appropriate sanctions meted on the guilty. Macaroni at an interview in Lagos revealed that such allegations should not be kept secret.
Macaroni is popularly known for his Instagram comedy videos, where he plays the role of a “sugar daddy”. He is known for the phrases “Ooin” and “You are doing well”.
Commenting on the act, he said: “Absolutely disgusting, absolutely abominable act, I’ve always spoken against it, even before I attained this position of being a public figure.
“I have kicked against it, I have lots of tweets against it; I have lots of content to speak against it, it is highly disrespectful and highly degrading, it reeks of how much we have lost touch with humanity. People should get roles and jobs based on competence, based on the fact that they can deliver. How many people will you sleep with?”Mr Macaroni
He went on to add that there should be repercussions for such actions rather than turning a blind eye to them.
“There should be consequences for reprehensible behavior to do better. If not, if they are found guilty, I want to believe there is appropriate punishment to address this.”Mr Macaroni
“And it cuts across, it’s not just sex, somebody will ask you to go and bring money for a job if they have money will they be looking for jobs, we shouldn’t ruin others’ life too,” Macaroni said.Mr Macaroni
“Time and chance happen to all man, continue with your journey, success will not come to you on a platter of gold, you have to work for it.” He concluded.Mr Macaroni
