Actress Kemi Lala Akindoju Shares What Budding Actors Must Do To Stand Out In Nollywood

Kemi Lala Akindoju, actress and movie producer, has shared with budding actors tips on how to build a career in Nollywood...

During a live session organised for potential actors and actresses, Akindoju said the most reliable feedback should always be sought from “people other than family members”.

She said: “You need to ask yourself some important questions before going into acting.
“You need to get people other than family members to watch you act because that is where you get the real feedback.

“You must understand the technical terms and offices in the industry before going for any auditions.

“Without your knowledge of the technical terms, you will be presenting yourself as a novice in the presence of the judges.”

Akindoju, who started her acting career on stage, advised the actors to enroll in a drama school where they could be formally trained.

“If possible, take short courses in acting, cinematography, writing, amongst other fields,” she said.

“Put in the efforts required to get to the peak of your career.

“Volunteer to work as interns or production assistants because when you work in theatre, you work on your body and it helps you memorize lines better.

“Aspiring actors can add value to themselves in many ways. Record yourself doing monologues and get people to watch.

“Follow producers, directors and training schools manuals on social media so you do not miss out when they call for auditions.”
She won the Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice (AMVCA) trailblazer award for her role in Tunde Kelani’s ‘Dazzling Mirage’ in 2016.
