Actor Yul Edochie has shot a sour verdict at the Nigerian film industry.
According to him, it has become the dumping ground for
Those he calls block heads.
Many had feared that the sector globally revered harboured quacks, but Yul’s judgement is absolute.
Of course, this is also a season that eyebrows are usually raised – when evictees and winners alike from BBNaija reality show say Nollywood is the next port of call.
While he is not referring to this, he insists the industry is full of illiterate actors and actresses.
He wrote in an IG tantrum:
EVERYBODY WAN BE ACTOR AND ACTRESS.
ALL THE DUMMIES AROUND WANT TO BE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES.
NOLLYWOOD HAS TURNED TO DUMPING GROUND FOR BLOCK HEADS.
EVEN PEOPLE THAT CAN’T SPEAK GOOD ENGLISH HAVE BECOME ACTORS AND ACTRESSES UNLIKE BEFORE.
NOLLYWOOD DON SUFFER.
SOMEHOW EVERYTHING DIES IN THIS COUNTRY.
