Onyeka Emechebe was the first runner up at the reality television show sponsored to bring forth the next movie star in Nigeria. She lost the top prize to a Ghanaian in the competition. She has joined in exposing the sexual challenges actresses face in Nollywood which some other actresses have continued to deny. She spoke with Encomium magazine on life after winning the second place prize of 250, 000 Naira, the rise to fame and how her parents reacted to her choice of career and her time in the reality competition. She said some auditions would end up with giving one's body for roles. "Having to go for numerous auditions, you know as an upcoming actress, you have to go for auditions. You go for like 10 auditions and get called back for just two. "So, it has been challenging and some harassment in the industry. Though some claim there is no harassment, there are. "If you know your worth, you know the kind of person you are, then you don’t have to give in to sexual harassment."
