Producer Obi Emelonye talks about why Omotola and Genevieve aren't getting movie roles.
He revealed in an interview with thenollywoodreporter.com why he thinks the high fees the two Nollywood divas charge might make them jobless. Read his words below.....
"Genevieve and Omotola are the two biggest actresses we have in Nollywood, they cannot afford to charge less than their status and that is where the problem comes in. Their charges are probably above what the industry can afford. Their charges are like half of the entire production budget so which producer can afford that?"
What they can do now as it is with other big stars all over the world, is that they should begin to fund their own productions and act in them, they can act whatever role will enhance their brand, they need to start a production company now, and push themselves because they need to remain relevant and must not be seen as jobless. If corporate bodies perceive them as jobless they won't want to do business with them, they might even price them cheap."
