The rate at which upcoming actors produce movies is alarming- Yetunde Bakare
Beautiful ebony-faced actress and filmmaker, Yetunde Bakare has lamented over the rate at which budding actors produce movies.
In a recent chat with TheNewsGuru, Bakare who recently ventured into lingerie business expressed her dismay over the rate at which new talents venture into movie production without learning the ropes.
Reacting to a statement made by veteran actor, Dele Odule about young actors messing up Nollywood, she said: ”I honestly don’t understand what he meant by using the word ‘messing up’. Messing up in what way? Is it because they refuse to go through the old process of joining a caucus and going for rehearsals, rather they jump into movie production as long as they have the funds to sponsor themselves? I agree with Uncle Dele Odule If that is what he meant.
“The rate at which upcoming actors produce movies is alarming and totally out of proportion. I am not against promoting yourself as a young artiste, but it should be done properly”, she whined .
Speaking further, Bakare said some actors have forgotten their motive for joining the industry.
“ If Uncle Dele is referring to actors who have forgotten their motive for joining the industry, I agree with him.Rather than focus on their motive for joining the industry and better their craft, some get into competition, running when nobody is chasing them”.
