Nollywood Actor, Gideon Okeke has taken to his social media page to vent against the ill-treatment of Actors in the Nigerian movie industry.

According to the thespian, he’s been feeling frustrated and he questioned the usefulness of the actor’s guild in Nigeria.

His IG post reads ;

Why is it right for Actors to not receive royalties and residuals for their life’s work in Nigeria.

Is it because it says so in the contract ?

Is there really always a contract ?

What the heck does the guild stand for really ?

He continued via the caption ;

I’ve really begun to feel frustrated in this CRAFT that I love so much. Remember that during the times of COVID lockdown, ONLY folks working in “essential services” were allowed to come out. Doctors, Nurses, Farmers etc etc.

Let me remind you that while you were holed-up in your home for upwards of 4 months, watching Television, The ACTOR participated actively, in keeping your sanity in check. That’s An Essential Service if you ask Me.

But for All that the ACTOR does (for society) all that accrues to him at the end of the day, is the upfront payment which he accepted. Which most of the time, comes at a Piecemeal drop, covering for a duration of A Lifetime….For Life!
