The industry is very poor – Lola Also Speaks On Taking A Break From Nollywood

Popular Nollywood Actress Lola Alao, recently had  an interaction with Vanguard in which she talked about her life as an actress, a producer and as a single mother.

Read excerpts below.

Taking a break from Nollywood: I have been doing other things because the industry is very poor right now. When I say poor, I mean when you produce a movie, the marketers do not make profit because of piracy. Also, people don’t buy our movies like before; they would rather watch cable TV, so I decided to slow down a little. I produced a movie last year but it is yet to be released, the movie was shot in California, Las Vegas, Paris and Nigeria.

Piracy is killing this indtry. I have also noticed that anybody can decide to become a producer which is wrong. Like I said earlier, I just produced a movie, I didn’t produce it with my money; I took a bank loan which I have to pay back, but with the rate of piracy in the industry that might be a challenge.

On single mothers: I think it has to do with making the wrong choice. I will say they haven’t gotten to their final destination that is why they are single mothers. Yes, I think every single mother you see made a wrong choice.
