Imo State-born actor cum director, Charles Awurum, who joined the league of multi-millionaires as he recently got endorsement deal with Globacom, in a recent interview with The Sun speaks on the up-coming actresses who pay to feature in Nollywood movies;

Is it true the desperate ones pay certain amount of money to feature in movies to some of our producers, whether they know how to act or not? So, with that they are leaving out professionals who will give them the best. And it is affecting production. So many girls are doing different things in the name of becoming actress. You see up-coming actresses arriving film locations with big cars, they pay for their hotel accommodation, feeding and also pay over N300,000 just to feature in a film. They are gradually destroying professionalism. But I believe this phase will go and Nollywood will be sanitised.

On Globacom endorsement: I must appreciate Chief (Mike) Adenuga for his great love for entertainment and interest in my career. So many times they’ve called me for adverts, commercials and soaps. We will soon embark on a street show in over six states in Nigeria. The show is tagged ‘Glo Street Show’ and my appearance has been approved. In fact, when I got the invitation my heart was filled with joy. 

Seriously? for what na all to be in a movies, how long will they continue with the fake and cheap life, about time these up and coming actors know that hard work pays, no wonder they never make it in the industry
