Temitope Osoba, Nollywood actress has called on the Nigerian government to help actors and make sure they are paid well.
Osoba stated that she feels bad when she sees top Nigerian actors coming out social media platforms begging for financial assistance.
The actress explained that many actors rely on acting as is their only source of income, adding that it’s impossible to always be on top in the movie industry.
She stated that when actors are not really having it in the industry they should be able to have money to fall back on.

Osoba shared her thoughts on the issue in an interview with Broadway TV. On her interview, she also advised her colleagues younger and those who are coming up to make sure they invest their money in businesses.
According to the Nollywood actress, when it’s time for them to relax and act fewer roles in the industry, the money from their investments would serve as a source of income.
She continued to say that being broke is the worst thing to happen to someone in life. She noted: “Poverty is the worst thing that can happen to a human being,
“I reject poverty, I reject it for my loved ones, for my enemy and anyone I know. Poverty kills faster than anything.”
