Yahoo Boys And Prostitutes Now Dominate Nollywood, Actor Yemi Solade Says

Nollywood actor, Yemi Solade has shared his thoughts about the Nigerian movie industry.

According to him, ‘Yahoo boys’ and prostitutes now dominate Nollywood.

The veteran actor made the damning revelation in an interview with The Tribune.

He accused the gatekeepers of Nollywood of allowing unprofessional actors to fill spaces meant for genuine talents.

Solade said “The Nollywood is not there right now. The Nollywood you see now is all encompassing. It’s like an uncompleted building that is not guarded and what you meet there would amaze you. It has become an all comers affair, anybody can stroll in and act. All the Yahoo boys are now there, all the prostitutes that you can imagine are there.

“People cannot even differentiate between the core professionals and this class of clowns who have infiltrated the association, but they didn’t just fly in, some people whom you refer to as core professionals brought them in.

“It’s just so porous that anybody can become an actor, the entry point is so porous and annoying. It’s a profession and it must be handled and treated as one. I am not really pleased with the state of the industry. It’s a professional body and we must portray ourselves as one that has mastered the art and craft of the profession.”
