Nollywood Actor, Uche Maduagwu has alleged that most new actresses only joined the movie industry to attract wealthy married men.
The self-acclaimed “Africa’s most talked about” actor said Nollywood was respected world over when Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and co were the young actresses in the industry
He however stated that with the new crop of actresses, Nollywood has lost respect and mediocrity has taken over.
His Instagram page reads;
During the time of Genevieve Nnaji, Aunty Omotola, Rita Dominic, sister Kate, sister Ini Edo just to mention but a few, #nollywood was RESPECTED all over the #world because of the standard and meritocracy of our movies, but with the influx of the so called NEW nollywood actresses, mediocrity is now the order of the day, it is like they pack the whole Allen Avenue and Pekas ambassadors into our industry, the way dem dey look for wealthy #MARRIED men with the speed of light is preposterously worrisome to say the least, we use better #technology and spend bigger financially on movies but the quality of acting and professionalism has dropped drastically.
