Is it true that Nollywood used to earn better respect?
Is it true that it used to produce better actors?
Is it true that many of the new actresses are run girls?
Well, controversial actor Uche Maduagwu is airing his fear on how he thinks the value of the Nigeria movie industry dropped drastically.
He argues that Nollywood was well respected all over the world during the days of Ini Edo, Rita Dominic, Omotola Jalade and some other big names.
According to him, with the arrival of new Nollywood actresses who, he alleges, just want to get wealthy married men, the quality of acting has dropped.
“During the time of Genevieve Nnaji, Aunty Omotola, Rita Dominic, sister Kate, sister Ini Edo just to mention but a few, nollywood was RESPECTED all over the world because of the standard and meritocracy of our movies.
But with the influx of the so called NEW nollywood actresses, mediocrity is now the order of the day.
It is like they pack the whole Allen Avenue and Pekas ambassadors into our industry.
The way dem dey look for wealthy MARRIED men with the speed of light is preposterously worrisome to say the least, we use better technology and spend bigger financially on movies but the quality of acting and professionalism has dropped drastically.”
