The renumeration is quite poor – Actress, Tayo Odueke speaks on Nollywood
Popular Yoruba actress, Tayo Odueke better known as Sikirat Sindodo, stated that people should not be deceived by the excessive show of wealth by Nollywood actors.
According to her, despite the photographs of houses, cars and other material possessions flaunted by movie stars on social media, their remuneration is quite poor.
She made this known during the weekend in a recent chat.
“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.”
