By Patricia Uyeh,
Speaking on why he has been off the movie scene, model and Nollywood actor, Uti Nwachukwu revealed that the acting profession does not pay that much.
According to him, he would not pretend all is well as acting does not pay much. He said this during a recent interview where he disclosed that his focus now is on what pay his bills.
“I haven’t been in the country, but I am back now. I took a break from acting because it doesn’t pay much and I am not ready for that kind of life. I don’t want to pretend about it; so, I am only focusing on what brings greater remuneration, which is television presenting and hosting of events.
“Acting would just be a hobby because honestly, producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn. But I will not stay away from movies totally; I will pick only exceptional movies instead of featuring in all the ones I am invited to partake in. I don’t have so much time for little money. I am not here to pretend all is well. I am in the industry to make money; I am not in the industry to play.”
