Jide Kene – Problem With Nollywood Is Stereotyping
Nollywood actor, Jide Kene Achufusi aka Swanky JKA appeared on Rubbin Minds and talked about the challenges in Nollywood.
The actor spoke with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and said that of all the challenges in the industry, stereotyping definitely tops the list.
In his statement, the actor said;
“The biggest problem I have with Nollywood right now is stereotyping, if it’s Ghetto movies that are going on right now, everybody will go into Ghetto movies.
“If it’s love and comedy, let’s go! We don’t really do have a plan, we have a structure. It’s all about the money.
“So, if I had come to Lagos before the time I did, I would probably have done more roles well and everybody else will put me on that kind of role.
“And that is usually the case when we look at those veteran actors. We usually do not have anybody who has done a lot of things.”
