Nigerian Nollywood actor, Yemi Solade has made a clear revelation about the Nigerian movie industry.
According to report from a recent a chat with Tribune, he said that the gatekeepers of Nollywood have allowed unprofessionals to fill spaces meant for those who really want to work with passion for the craft.
“The Nollywood is not like the former Nollywood we knew, the one you are seeing now is all encompassing. it’s like an uncompleted building that is not guarded and what you meet there would amaze you.
It has become an all comers affair, anybody can stroll in and act. All the Yahoo boy are now there, all the prostitutes that you can imagine are there.
People cannot even differentiate between the core professionals and these class of clowns who have infiltrated the association, but they didn’t just fly in, some people whom you refer to as core professionals brought them in.
The painful part is that it’s just so porous that anybody can become an actor, the entrt point is so porous and annoying.
It’s a professional body and we must portray ourselves as one that has mastered the art and craft of the profession.”he said.
