Sikiratu Sindodo: Nollywood Actors Pay Rate Is Poor, You Only Make Money When You Produce Your Own Movies
Even though some actors still flaunt their material possessions on the social media, many say the pay is poor in the movie industry.
Nollywood actress Tayo Odueke popularly called Sikiratu Sindodo has confirmed this in a chat with The Scoop.
Here is what she said;
“I don’t have any regrets being in the industry. Just like in every other area of life, there are ups and downs. I just thank God that I’m still here because many people I started together with are no longer around. However, that is not to say that there are no challenges. The pay in the industry is poor and it is not encouraging at all. It is the passion one has that has kept one in the industry for this long. You only make money when you produce your own movies. Ordinarily, that shouldn’t be so. There is a lot of potential in the industry and we only need the right support to excel.”
Her Thoughts On Depression
“I believe that there is nobody that doesn’t get depressed but it all depends on how you manage it. There will always be ups and down. You may fall several times but never forget to get back up. The case of people in the entertainment industry is peculiar because we make people laugh by what we do but some of us are going through pains of different kinds. Some people now make it worse by trolling celebrities on social media and saying horrible things to them. Stars are humans too and we have emotions.”
