Model and Nollywood actor, Uti Nwachukwu, in a new interview has revealed that the acting profession does not pay that much and he’s not ready to pretend all is well.
In an interview with PUNCH, the handsome actor revealed why he hasn’t been acting.
“I haven’t been in the country, but I am back now. I took a break from acting because it doesn’t pay much and I am not ready for that kind of life. I don’t want to pretend about it; so, I am only focusing on what brings greater remuneration, which is television presenting and hosting of events.
“Acting would just be a hobby because honestly, producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn. But I will not stay away from movies totally; I will pick only exceptional movies instead of featuring in all the ones I am invited to partake in. I don’t have so much time for little money. I am not here to pretend all is well. I am in the industry to make money; I am not in the industry to play.”
About why he’s not married yet despite the fact that his colleagues were getting married, Uti said he was not in a rush to do same.
“I will marry at the right time and marriage is not a competition. Once I find the right person, nothing will prevent me from getting married. I am an adult and my parents are educated. Therefore, they can’t force me to get married,” he added.
‘Find yourself a job and stop criticizing Shatta Wale’- Rosemond Brown jabs Achipalago
It has become apparent that Kumawood actress and video vixen, Rosemond Brown does not want the ‘moments’ to slide without getting involved and putting herself in the spotlight.
In the ensuing war of words between friends-turned-enemies; Shatta Wale and Achipalago, the actress has cautioned the latter to get preoccupied with a job so he would stop insulting Shatta Wale any chance he gets.
Rosemond’s warning is in response to attacks the ‘Ayo’ hitmaker has suffered after he innocently shared a video himself getting a haircut in the salon.
The video went viral for the wrong reasons as many are mocking Shatta Wale for having eczema around his neck area.
In the video, Achipalago wondered why Shatta Wale, who flaunts his wealth on social media could not afford to acquire good skincare products.
Rosemond Brown however thinks, Achipalago’s concerns reek of jealousy and has adviced him to find something better doing with his time.
She went on to caution him to desist from commenting on issues relating to Shatta Wale and asked that he gets a job to while away the excess time he obviously has.
