“Despite All My Hardworking, I Was Being Paid 1k” – Popular Veteran actor living in Uncompleted house cries out for help (Video)

A Nollywood actor has recently spoken out about the inadequate pay he receives for his roles, bringing attention to the difficulties he encounters within the Nollywood film industry.

In a candid conversation with @skibocomedy7, the actor shared that he presently lives in a run-down zinc house with numerous holes. During this vulnerable moment, he recounted the challenges he has faced while pursuing a career in Nollywood.

Despite being promised fair compensation for his acting contributions, he expressed his dismay over consistently receiving only a fraction of what he rightfully deserves for his dedicated efforts.

“You will be called for a job of N10k, but when you are done you will be given N1k and told that the remaining will be paid into your account but you will see nothing. That was why I gave up on doing such jobs,” he said.

The actor also spoke about the poor working conditions he faced on set.

“You will do a standard that will be uploaded on YouTube for someone, this person will still get millions when the job is uploaded on YouTube but he will not even pay for your feeding. I will still buy food with the money I borrowed to go for the job,” he said.

The poor actor is seeking help from anyone who wishes to change his situation.
