Budding singer Naomi Branch, while speaking in an interview on the level of sexual harassment women face in their career, revealed that she was almost raped by a radio presenter.
She told The Punch that the alleged rapist was later arrested but unfortunately he was released
“The major challenges I face in my career are funding and sexual harassment from men, especially those who you approach for help. It’s very difficult, especially for young, beautiful up-and-coming acts like me.
A case in point was when a radio presenter and comedian tried to rape me because I was looking for a job. I was able to escape from his grip and reported him to the police. He was arrested but later released because his family is rich and influential. There are many cases like that and the only way to make it is if you can get a genuine sponsor.”
