Veteran Nollywood actor, Afeez Oyetoro, is if the opinion that there is discrimination between young and old actors.

Speaking on "Rubbin Minds" on Channels Television, the actor explained that the discrimination probably exists because there's no strong structure to protect the interest of actors when it comes to better pay.

“There is discrimination between the young act and old act, I just believe in time, things will change," he said.

"Maybe because of the resources available and then because of the organisation we have that is not strong enough to protect the interest of the actor to demand better pay, but things will change, we are working on it.”

Saka, who has featured in several stage performances, also spoke about the future of theatre arts in Nigeria.

“I see a very fantastic future, it was not like this when we started especially for our seniors but now things are working well.

"Banks and government are coming in, cooperate bodies are coming in, people have started seeing theatre as a real business. Creative people are coming up and a lot of innovation is being introduced in the packaging of entertainment.”
