Lilian Afegbai says she was nearly expelled as a student after she acted in a sex scene with Jim Iyke.
The film star recalled her earliest memories of venturing into acting in an interview
Afegbai said she was made to face a disciplinary panel at Benson Idahosa University (BIU) in Benin, Edo state.
She said the acting gig was her first movie role at the time when she was combining schooling and a career in film.
“I started acting fully in BIU. In the first movie that I did, they almost expelled me from school because I had a sex scene with Jim Iyke. So when the movie came out, then I was young,” Afegbai said.
“I didn’t even have a boyfriend, I was just young, I was acting, make-believe.
“It was just a lot, and people in the school, you know how jealousy now, people started telling our Reverend Seb’s wife and so they brought the movie to school, they said I acted an illicit scene, they fixed a panel.
“I thought I was going to get expelled. I was scared. It was a Christian school and when people start talking about things in school and making it a thing, you actually face a panel.
“When I went to the panel, I started making them understand that I am Christian.
“I would never do anything to jeopardize my Christian faith but then this is acting ma, it’s make-believe.”
