Giving more insight into her role as well as the filming experience, Sharon revealed, ‘I played the role of Isalabo, an influential ‘madam’ who recruited young innocent girls from the village to the city for prostitution.
She was a tough woman who regularly made friends with criminal, the police, politicians and any influential person who can provide her protection.
The set experience is one that was so cumbersome because I had to travel out of town with the cast and crew to a location suitable to the setting of the movie as a brothel.
This came with a lot of logistics such as transport, accommodation and feeding. Managing the ego and attitude of the cast and crew was no doubt a huge challenge for me.
