“‘Open your paynt, those before you did it too. If you want to help your career, come and suck me’. Where is our humanity? This has gone on for so long and it has even become a norm.
“You will see great Talents struggling simply because they refused to ‘suck’. This isn’t peculiar to the entertainment industry alone. Schools, Banks, Hospitals… these acts are common everywhere. It is totally unfair and wicked.
“Stop taking advantage of people only trying to fulfill their dreams. Have some decency! We must do better!”
