Veteran Nollywood actress Sola Sobowale, who many would remember as Toyin Tomato in Wale Adenuga’s hit TV series, Super Story, has admitted that there is no money in acting and that she needs money to survive just like every other working Nigerian because actresses and actors are not well paid. She also said she lost N2.8 million 2 years ago, after shooting a movie for N5.8m and only made N3m back. Her words below…
On why the produce quantity movies instead of quality movies, she said;
It’s a pity because you know the answer yourself. We need to feed ourselves. I shot a movie about 2 or 3 years ago called Adayeba Ote Part 1, 2, 3. When I was tired of recording, I had spent about N5.8 million and we had not finished editing. After editing, I did not make up to 3 million. I thank God I did not borrow any money to do that, if I had borrowed money what would have happened to me? I lived in England, I do all the jobs and I bring the money back to Nigeria to shoot a movie because this is me, this is my passion. When you talk about quality, where are you going to get the money for the quality?
If she is fulfilled as an actress, Sola said;
I am not talking about money but you know something in life? When you enjoy doing what you love, you will be fine. I am fine but I need money to survive. I want all my effort to be crowned because I work very hard so I can’t just be doing it in vain.
