Nollywood actress, Joke Lawal has opened up on somethings she doesn’t find very appealing in the Nollywood film industry which she would love to change if she has the power.
Lawal said that a lot of people consider actresses as prostitutes who are not worthy for marriage. She also stated that she would like to change the way scripts are interpreted and also the quality of productions. The talented thespian disclosed this in an interview with Vanguard’s Potpourri.
In her words;
“I would like to change people’s perception of actresses. A lot of people think of actresses as prostitutes, they see us as people who are not worthy of marriage and having a family. If I have the power this is something I will like to change.
“I will also like to see a change in the way our stories are written and interpreted, and in the quality of our film productions.
“Another thing I would like to change too is, how poorly actors are paid. As a producer, I will like a situation where I can pay every actor that works on my project even if the person acts in just one scene. As an upcoming actress, I acted in movies and didn’t get paid but because I was still new in the industry I didn’t have a choice. God help me, these are things I will like to change in the movie industry.”
