Nollywood actress and Producer, Yvonne Jegede, has shared why she decided to start producing her own movies.
Nigerian actress turned producer, Yvonne Jegede, recently produced her 1st movie '3 is Company.'
In an interview with Pulse Nigeria, the actress revealed why she decided to start producing her own movie.
"I have aways had lots of stories in my head that I want to produce, act or tell. I just didn't really think that if I shared the idea with a producer, that the person would understand where the story is coming for." she said.
"So, I just thought, why don't I shoot this film myself, and then tell the story the way I want it to be told. Because there's no how you would give the story to someone else, and the person wont want to bring in their own ideas," Jegede added.
Jegede also stated that she wanted to cast herself in a different and daring role;
"Some producers wouldn't cast you for some certain roles, because they already have people that they 'think' are the best for such characters."
"So, I thought, why don't I produce my own film, play the kind of role that I think daring enough, and would make the world go 'wow,' she said.
Yvonne Jegede recently premiered her debut production movie '3 is a Company', which stars OC Ukeje, Yvonne Jegede, Wole Ojo, and Peggy Ovire.
