I Would Rather Pay To Be In A Movie Than Have An Affair With The Producer- Hannah Ogundare

Upcoming actress Hannah Ogundare who is a graduate of economics has aired her views on the recent unethical activities going on in Nollywood.

According to the Ekiti State born script interpreter, it is indeed true some actresses pay directors to get roles but she's not into it.

"I've heard cases about people giving money to directors for roles. A girl told me she once paid N200,000 to feature in an English movie. Well, actresses who do this are adults, so I can't question their actions.

Moreover, I need not judge them because it's not my money. Most of these girls use acting as a platform for prostitution, showcasing their selling point to older and loaded guys who need their services.

To some extent, I actually think paying for roles is better than sleeping with producers or directors to get roles," she told Vanguard.

She also talked about the competition amongst the many Yoruba actresses who have all ventured in the buying and selling business.

"Yes, I am a business woman. Everyone has reasons for their actions. I didn't venture into business because it's the trend in Nollywood especially among Yoruba actresses.

I've been into buying and selling long before I joined the entertainment industry even as an undergraduate.

Acting isn't that lucrative as people think. Most of the popular faces make up with endorsements, adverts and other chains of businesses.

Many things are wrong in Nollywood. Most of our directors scarcely promote upcoming actors in the industry.

They should allow new faces to feature well to showcase their talents. The popular faces did not just get there in a day. Some of them disappoint producers at the 11th hour.

Our viewers are tired of seeing the same old faces. We also need to work more on our story ideas. Many of our films are predictable. Once you see the cast, you know what the story is all about,” she stated. (Nigeriafilms)
