Actress Nkechi Emmanuel Slams Nollywood Over Poor Pay
Nollywood actress, Nkechi Emmanuel, has said actors are not well paid and no one in the industry cares if one is dying or not.
Nkechi, popularly known as Nurse Titi in the popular soap opera, ‘Clinic Matters’ compared Nollywood to Hollywood and wished that things would change.
Speaking with Vanguard, Nurse Titi said, “Nigerian actors are not well paid. We are not well catered for.
“I have been opportune to do one or two short movies in Hollywood. I and one other guy were the only Nigerians in the film.
“Over there, we were pampered; I must confess. If you complain of headache, you will be allowed to the green room.
“But here in Nigeria, even if you are dying, no one cares, you must go on because you have been given a certain amount of money that’s not even worth it.”
The Most Promising Actress of the Year 2016 at the Classic Africa Merit Awards, CAMA, spoke on her relationship life, saying “Marriage is around the corner. It will happen very soon but you don’t expect me to give you the date.”
Debunking the notion that celebrities find it difficult to find love, she said, “That is not true. I have found love before, I am still in love and will still get men falling in love with me. We should learn to give love a try.
“I can go to any length for love.
“I can kill for love. Love is a good thing and when I find it, I am a very jealous lover. If anyone blocks my path, I can kill that person.”
The Anambra State-born revealed her Nigerian celebrity crush as Patoranking, saying “He knows what he wants and I like his dress sense.”
