Open Letter to Upcoming Nollywood Stars
Uchechukwu Obiakor, in his new article, writes an "Open Letter to Upcoming Nollywood Stars"
I'm more concerned about future your endeavours. You're already seeing yourself as one of the sort after actors, the directors and producers won't achieve a successful film without you as the lead or supporting character.
The marketers won't forgive any graphic designer for failing to put your face on a film poster(Your face dey sell film). Your fan base have swelled or blown out of proportion that you walk the streets putting on dark shades even at night (Pray Subsidy era doesn't return. Trekking). Life is not so rosy, the superstar status you aspire for, is far from a lot of things. Actors are not made, but born. Ask yourself how you came about the actor thing.
Maybe you attended a half class of a supposed film school and the next you demand to be called a 'screen god or diva'.If you're to born to act, no director will look down on you during auditions. No producer will demand for sex before you are given a role.
Paying directors and producers to be featured in their films is star-doom not stardom. If you're the type that sleeps around with filmmakers, you are bound to spend your entire acting career in beds.
Act! Don't get naked! If you can interpret a script better, the international scene is your starting point. Remember, 'You no sabi act be say you no sabi act'. No two ways about it
