I was with a celebrity and we were
discussing this new trend, and a friend
also with us was a victim, now it is getting
to the extreme, that it is now talked about
everywhere, Several people said that it’s
the girls they refer to as ‘runz girls’
looking for popularity that started this
They would offer movie producers money
to feature in their movie so they can refer
to themselves as actresses and now it’s
become a part of Nollywood. This sounds so
weird but it is true.
According to our source ,A-list Nollywood
actors & actresses get paid for featuring in
movies, but if you’re an unknown actor
struggling to get into the movie industry,
some movie producers make you pay to
feature in their movies.
That’s the new trend now. If you’re looking
to feature in a movie, all you need to do is
pay a fee, no audition is required. For
minor roles, these producers demand
anything from N50k to N100k…it all
depends on the role they are giving you.
If you want to play a lead role it’s between
N500k to N1million. Waka pass people are
even made to pay.
The trick some of these
producers use is this; they say they are not
making money from these movies because
people aren’t buying them so can’t invest
all their money in it.
They also say finding financiers to pay for
the production of a movie is hard, so for
these movies to see the light of day, every
cast member has to contribute. Thing is,
many are eager to pay.
