The Story Corner : Please, How Much Per Role?

By Onozasi


{Clears throat} We have been hearing a lot of gist flying around this industry of mine. Well, it is my work as usual to get you to know about this gist. I heard that some sisters in the industry of make believe { Acting} are doing some great stuff like buying houses, cars etc. We are proud of them though but the question is, what kind of cars are they buying and what are they being paid? Hey, I am not here to question anybody’s achievement I am just wondering too just the way I heard the gist from a very reliable source. Okay, sister said she is solely an actress and we know how much they are being paid and our sister has more than five Prada in her closet, more than 20 Gucci’s in her closet… In this Nigeria? How much is the whole Nollywood sef? How much? And then I am wondering, this business must be very lucrative that after 10 movies you have hammered just like that! You are buying over three million naira jeep, your house is over 20 million. Haba! sister, sister! We are not calculating your wealth for you o but at the same time we are not mad ma. Excuse me ma, we are not mad. You can kindly tell us your other lucrative streams of income but don’t come fronting that it is your acting skills that is making or paving this kind of way for you. We are both in Nigeria na, and we know how it rolls.


Some other women would now be questioning their talents, they will now be feeling inadequate, my submission is this, Allow no one make you feel insecure, this world is too tedious to be negotiating your destiny on social media. We shall be okay at the end {We go dey alright las las}. I don’t know if they now pay actors in dollars but if you know production outfit that pays actors in dollars, please, keep me posted o. I would like to be an actor.
