Veteran Nollywood Actor, Yëmi Solade has said that the Nigerian movie industry is now full of prostitutes and Yahoo boys.
He made this statement in an interview with the Nigerian Tribune, the actor noted that he is not pleased with the current trends in the movie industry and he accused the professionals in the field for bringing ‘clowns’ into the industry
He said, “Nollywood is not there right now. The Nollywood you see is all-encompassing. It’s an uncompleted building that is not guarded and what you meet there would amaze you.
“It has become an all-comers affair, anybody can stroll in and act. All the Yahoo boy are now there, all the prostitutes that you can imagine are there.
“People can’t even discern between the core professionals and these class of clowns who have infiltrated the association. But they didn’t just fly in, people you call professionals brought them in.
“It’s just so porous that anybody can become an actor, the entry point is so porous and annoying. It’s a profession and it must be handled and treated as one.
“I am not really pleased with the state of the industry. It’s a professional body and we must portray ourselves as one that has mastered the art and craft of the profession.”
