Veteran Nollywood actress Sola Sobowale who has returned to the scene in a new TV series '' has spoken out against indecent dressing in the movie industry.

“The norm amongst up and coming actresses or I can put them as actors is that they feel they can warm themselves around producers or movie directors to get roles. It is wrong because we as actors are role models to people around us and we have to understand how important it is for us to protect our chastity”, she said.

Sola Sobowale who starred in the 1992 classic movie '' also said Nollywood has gone past raunchy movies.

“Some would reveal their cleavages even when it is not necessary or prefer to pick up roles where they can do raunchy or funny things to sell themselves. They should stop it because it doesn’t portray what the totality of acting is about. Movies and acting has gone beyond that. Remember the days of ‘Asewo To re Mecca’ and several other films we have made in Nollywood, we have grown past them. Now, we are seen as models for others who take a cue from what we do on screen” said the mother of twin girls.
