Nollywood actor, Kanayo Kanayo has blown hot over the state of things in the industry.
The veteran, in an interview with Afia Tv, states that Nollywood shouldn’t be a ground for Brazilian Butt Life (BBL), sex workers, Instagram stars, and homosexuality.
He noted how the industry is a place for creativity, learning, and building one’s talents and how some ladies tend to imitate female stars.
The veteran further called out social media influencers, who are now taking over Nollywood, for being the biggest cause of disrespect in the industry. He added that they have limited time in the sun and would fizzle away as fast as they come.
However, he made it known that anyone is free to enter the film industry, but it should be based on talent.
“Nollywood should not be a ground for BBL; bum bum enlargement. Nollywood should not be a ground for people doing runs. Nollywood should not be a ground where people’s dollars are stolen in hotels. All these Nollywood girls, it is not a ground for gay or lesbianism.
It is a ground for creativity. Nollywood is not a ground for learning how to act. Many people come to Nollywood to learn how to act. You are supposed to come to the industry to better and hone your talent. Many girls after hearing Genevieve [Nnaji] is a millionaire, Omatola [Akande] is a billionaire, would go and borrow wigs and come [to the movie industry] deceiving themselves”.
Many agreed with him in the comment section as they noted how getting roles in the movie industry is now based on one’s physical appearance.
