Getting Help In Nollywood Is Difficult – Actor, Joseph Momodu Confesses
Nigerian actor, Joseph Momodu has admitted that people are not willing to help others in the movie industry.
Joseph spoke in an interview with Sunday Scope.
He disclosed how he nearly left the movie industry after he was sabotaged and given stereotyped roles to play.
He said, “The journey has not been smooth, it was actually rough. However, I thank God for His mercies. If not for his grace, I would have opted out of the industry a long time ago because people are not willing to help. Once they see that you talented, they would want to pull you down.”
Nollywood type casts actors. I used to be stereotyped as a lover boy in Nollywood. However, I have played other roles convincingly as well. And that has made producers and directors to see the range of what I can offer. I have also acted as both a wicked and gullible husband. I am no longer sterotyped” he added.
