Actress Nkechi Emmanuel Says Nollywood Does Not Pay Well...

Nollywood actress, Nkechi Emmanuel, has said actors are not well paid and no one in the industry cares if one is dying or not.



Nkechi, popularly known as Nurse Titi in the popular soap opera, ‘Clinic Matters’ compared Nollywood to Hollywood and wished that things would change.

Speaking with Vanguard, Nurse Titi said, “Nigerian actors are not well paid. We are not well catered for.

“I have been opportune to do one or two short movies in Hollywood. I and one other guy were the only Nigerians in the film.

“Over there, we were pampered; I must confess. If you complain of headache, you will be allowed to the green room.

“But here in Nigeria, even if you are dying, no one cares, you must go on because you have been given a certain amount of money that’s not even worth it.”

The Most Promising Actress of the Year 2016 at the Classic Africa Merit Awards, CAMA, spoke on her relationship life, saying “Marriage is around the corner. It will happen very soon but you don’t expect me to give you the date.”

Debunking the notion that celebrities find it difficult to find love, she said, “That is not true. I have found love before, I am still in love and will still get men falling in love with me. We should learn to give love a try.

“I can go to any length for love.

“I can kill for love. Love is a good thing and when I find it, I am a very jealous lover. If anyone blocks my path, I can kill that person.”

The Anambra State-born revealed her Nigerian celebrity crush as Patoranking, saying “He knows what he wants and I like his dress sense.”

Kill for love ooooo

LOLLAH said...

Maybe that's for her but others show us luxury cars,expensive houses in choice areas,first class trips,designer bags and shoes. How are they keeping this up?

OluVee said...

She said nothing but the truth. All d flash things they post on their handles is either frm runs,rituals or internet fraud. The only rich actress I respect is rita dominic

zee said...

Was she serious when she said she can kill for love? Chai if am your husband to be sister I will just beg him not to marry you, cos right there is not the definition of Love that you so claim you know.

Before nko?
It doesn't
Some of them live on endorsements and some add prostitution to it.

Audrey said...

Stella it no longer pays well oo, forget those ones that show off on social media. Most of them have side biz/runs? they do.

It's just very few actors that are payed well, most producers don't even have the money to pay them. That is why most of them are producing/directing and playing the major role in their own movie.

Nkechi is a very good actress, it's such a pity that she is yet to be recognized locally not to talk of internationally.

OK I love pato too but he has baggage abeg,by the way shantelle mbuk hope you were not the one that tattooed you boo's name on your body, if not, you have a great competitor

This is nt true Stella. Asaba star artists are well paid! I meam the star artists oo.. im in the know! Its true "some" of them have their runs businesses by the side but they earn good cash. When Tonto was acting, she charges 500k to 800k, Ini charges 800k to 1m, mercy at some point cbarged 1.5m and if u agree to pay her 1.8m, she wld abandon the pay of 1.5m and come film youfs first! Chika Ike charged 500k to 700k once upon a time. Nuella was 100k to 150k max! Chacha Eke 500k, Eve Esin 250k to 300k max! Angela okorie 300k to 400k max (she acts jack but her pretty face sells movies. She's eyecatching on movie posters). Chioma Chuckwuka, 700k to 1m most times. Queen charged 1m once upon a time, but these days she could take 600k or 700k max cos market is a bit bad.Ken Erics 500k to 400k, mike Ezuruonye 700k t0 800k, Daniel K Daniel 500k to 400k, zubby Micheal 500k now, diamond okechi 150k max but lies that he's being paid 300k ( he is in secret competition with zubby. You barely hears what he says. Local and igbotic actor. Stick to ur village films where u speak in ibo. do not bother acting a classy glamour movie). So stella, the are well paid. Imagine charging 800k for a movie and shoots for just one week then joins another set the next week and collects your cool 800k again! Haba! There's money in Asaba movies. Most of them do 6moviez in a month. They shuttle diffrent sets. Imagine someone earning 800k per movie or 300k even, and gets to film 6movies in a month, i leave you to do thse maths yourself. They are well paid pls.

She is too desperate for fame, unfortunately she never saw the fame,and she has a very bad character.

Vivilicious said...

Easy with the insults @ Adeniji, can't you see she only quoted the actress.

Vivilicious said...

I don't believe this abeg. You must b an actor trying to hype your profession. Yimu

Kwakwakwa Rita that my guy's friend fucked the hell out of her, after they both smoked Igbo! The next morning, Rita told him to help her with 1 million naira. She said she's looking for money for money to complete her house on Ireland. The guy told her to call him later and disappeared! My dear, I witnessed this first hand!

Eve esin 500k? Joke of the century! Lie lie! I'm a script prompter by the way. Angela earns more money than eve. Reason being that she's pretty. Poster friendly and camera friendly. Eve isn't beautiful but acts way better than Angela. Eve's take home pay is 250 to 300k. At some point she limited herslf to jst filming for magic movies.

Adanne said...

Na real fear oo nwunye G, women are not smiling oo, why say it public.

Madam Vivilicious, ol dey ve said is soooooooo true. These Asaba star artists r wel paid. D guys get broke eazily cause of mismanagement, while d star actresses r cashing in with huge pay and their runs by d side.

Very fat lie Eve earn more than Angela and I am an actor, script prompter you lie, and I am not the anon up there,Angela just got lucky and she is not even in the movie line in asaba that much again,Eve collects 500k,Angela takes even 150k

Anonymous said...

I agree Eve is not beautiful and she is old but she is a better actress than Angela, Angela was just lucky and as a local igbo girl she got the hearts of marketers.

Rita dominic? Aka Uchenna. Her parents were rich when they were alive. Her older siblings are rich too but I have heard rumours of spreading legs for money albeit very codedly. (hearsay)
