Actress Sikirat Sindodo Says There's Poor Pay In Nollywood Despite The Show Off By Movie Stars

Popular actress, Tayo Odueke, otherwise known as Sikirat Sindodo, has said that there is poor pay in Nollywood despite the show off of houses, cars and other material possessions by movie stars on social media.....







She reiterated this during the weekend in a recent chat with reporters in Lagos.


She said, “I don’t have any regrets being in the industry. Just like in every other area of life, there are ups and downs. I just thank God that I’m still here because many people I started together with are no longer around. However, that is not to say that there are no challenges.


“The pay in the industry is poor and it is not encouraging at all. It is the passion one has that has kept one in the industry for this long. You only make money when you produce your own movies. Ordinarily, that shouldn’t be so. There is a lot of potential in the industry and we only need the right support to excel.”


Sharing her thoughts on depression, the actress said, “I believe that there is nobody that doesn’t get depressed but it all depends on how you manage it. There will always be ups and down. You may fall several times but never forget to get back up.


“The case of people in the entertainment industry is peculiar because we make people laugh by what we do but some of us are going through pains of different kinds. Some people now make it worse by trolling celebrities on social media and saying horrible things to them. Stars are humans too and we have emotions.”

From Daily Post



*Some of them are no longer actors but heavy runs men and women so calling them movie stars might be wrong.....

  1. I agree with her. I have a young friend that is an upcoming actress. She has acted along side Destiny Etiko and Chizzy Alichi and she told me that Chizzy warns 150k then all of a sudden Chizzy changed her ngwongwo motor to the latest jeep. Runs is heavy in nollywood.

    1. Erm... You will consider that those asa a actors and actresses do multiple movies in a month. So if she does 2-4 per month that's a fair amount of money. Maybe not enough for the latest jeep and mansions they build sha

  2. Talented lady, she's been around for so long and still relevant.

    Most profession this days needs a side business to augment the pay.

    It's not just about runs, if you don't invest the proceed from the runs into a viable business you'll still end up broke.

  10. The issue is getting into something at the right time. Unfortunately, Nollywood is somewhat over saturated right now with average and below average performers. I cannot name a new or newer actor/actress that has a commanding presence on screen. If you get average and below average pay it is reflective of the level of your skill. Too much mediocrity in that industry. Even with those who have supposedly studied at good institutions and have degrees they still suck at it.
