With the movie industry that comes with sexual harassment on aspiring female acts, Bellinda was to make a recount of her own experience. However, the Cross-River state born actress couldn’t deny the fact she’d experienced nothing different.

“I am not going to deny the fact that someone at some point made passes at me. This was when I was starting out in the industry but right now, I’ve not had that experience. When people call me for jobs, they are very professional about it. I thank God that I didn’t fall into that trap and it was even a ‘nobody’ who made the pass at that time. Some ladies toed that line but where are they today? When you sell your birthright, you can’t retrieve it again,” she said.
