Popular actor Francis Odega has expressed his opinion on the wealth of some actresses in Nollywood, stating that it can be linked to politicians who are not helping the industry. Odega believes that some of these actresses do not have the necessary skills to be good actors, yet they excel due to support from politicians. He acknowledges that there are well-mannered and disciplined women in the industry, but there is also an infiltration of those who are selling their bodies for success. Odega advises up-and-coming actors to have a passion for the job, be humble, disciplined, and have a role model.
According to Francis Odega, a popular actor, the newfound wealth of certain actresses in the industry can be attributed to politicians who are not supporting Nollywood. Odega, who has been in the industry for over 30 years, expressed his concern about how some actresses quickly acquire cars and mansions despite lacking the necessary skills to be good actors. He believes that these actresses outshine their male counterparts because of the influence and support they receive from politicians. However, Odega acknowledges that there are still well-mannered and respectable women in the industry, but the presence of a few bad ones tarnishes their reputation. Odega also mentioned that he is currently working on a comedy series and is still actively involved in acting. He clarified that the reason he hasn’t appeared in paid movie platforms like Netflix is because the decision to cast actors lies with the producers, not himself. Odega emphasized the importance of preparation for retirement and advised aspiring actors to be passionate, humble, disciplined, and to have role models who can inspire them. He concluded by reminding them to never forget God.
