Actors Guild President Emeka Rollas Says Some Actors Pay Movie Producer To Ge Movie Roles

When did actors start paying for scripts?OMG!!!

Emeka Rollas, President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has revealed how he normally plead with actors to join the guild, he claims is the most challenging part of his job.

In an encounter with Saturday Beats , Rollas said, “ Since I took office as the president of the guild , the most challenging part of my job has been having to beg people to join the AGN. I spend a lot of money but the people one does these things for don’t acknowledge you unless they have problems .

“Actors really need to understand what it means to belong to a guild . There are many people in Nollywood who don ’t understand that acting is a career . If one doesn’t understand the industry one is in, one would just be tossed around . If you go to different places in Nigeria today, you would find some actors paying producers to give them roles ; instead of things being the other way round. ”

Rollas also maintained that some actors who criticised the AGN were not members of the guild.

He added, “ We are not in competition with anybody but we will do as much as we can to bring everybody under one umbrella . If you think Instagram is your platform, no problem. We will leave you there . Every other day , we hear that an actor is sick somewhere and people call on the AGN ( to help ) and I tell them I don ’t even know the person because they have never identified with the guild.

“ Some of them are not members and they take pride in criticising the guild . The last time we had such an issue , the national public relations officer, Monalisa Chinda , gave a response. If you want to be a member , join us. Don’ t just criticise us. If the criticism is in good faith , we would make amends . With good criticism , we will go far. We don ’t have to take issues with anybody . 

You cannot be in the industry and refuse to join the relevant bodies. It is an aberration . However, we will keep creating 
awareness and talking to our people"

  1. And why would these actors pay to get roles? To get more money or just fame?

    1. I guess it's the fame in it that's driving them nuts

    2. The female actors especially because their intention is to "Audition" their bodies on screen for "marketing" purposes a.k.a prostitution and they are achieving their set-out purposes.

  2. Some offer pussy


  4. Aptly said. Join first before u can complain.

  5. Well, some pay to stay relevant instead of being in shadows so that they can showcase their acting skills for other producers who will pay, to see. Issa sacrifice & it's a hustle, just like any other career, tho the hustling might differ.
    Some will pay for fame and clout.
    Some will pay just for the love of it (acting).
    Some even act for free (not talking about give me booty, I give you role).
    Lastly, this life no balance at all.

  6. Stella they do. Most of this girls just to market themselves. Them plenty, especially Asaba so called actresses.
