Producers Paid Me Between N10 And N30k For Jobs – Hollywood Veteran Fabian Adibe
The actor says he quit the profession before losing his sight.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Nollywood veteran actor Fabian Adibe has spoken out about how exploitation in the Nigerian film business drove him to leave the profession prematurely.
Adibe said in a viral video that he had been unemployed for over 12 years after turning down an offer to work on free scripts from an Onitsha producer.
The ‘Staff of Odo’ actor, who is visually handicapped, also said that whereas he used to earn between N10,000 and N30,000 in his peak, veterans like himself now get N100,000.
Adibe’s admission has subsequently raised a few eyebrows concerning the plight of experienced performers, who frequently die as a result of sickness and destitution.
Remember how, a few weeks ago, renowned Kannywood actress Ladin Chima, well known as Mama Tambaya, chastised the Hausa film business for abusing her and abandoning her in her old age? In her peak, the old actress said that she received as low as N2000 each screenplay.
