The producer of two of Nigeria's biggest movies... Last flight to Abuja ( starring omotola) and mirror boy(Starring Genevieve)opened up to TheNollywoodReporter.com about two of Nollywood's biggest stars and why their high acting fees have made them jobless..

“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.”
They seem to be making a lot of money now though..are they really affected?
