REVEALED: How Actors In Nollywood Pay Producers For Movie Roles

There’s a new trend in Nollywood as upcoming actors and actresses offer movie producers money to feature in their movies.


According to sources, A-list Nollywood actors & actresses get paid for featuring in movies, but if you’re an unknown actor struggling to get into the movie industry, some movie producers make you pay to feature in their movies.

If you’re looking to feature in a movie, all you need to do is pay a fee, no audition is required. For minor roles, these producers demand anything from N50k to N100k, depending on the role they are giving you.

If you want to play a lead role it’s between N500k to N1million.

Even ‘waka pass’ people are even made to pay.

The thing is, these producers claim not to be making money from these movies because people aren’t buying them so they can’t invest all their money in it.

They also say finding financiers to pay for the production of a movie is hard, so for these movies to see the light of day, every cast member has to contribute and many are eager to pay.
