“You Have Not Paid Your Dues” -Femi Adebayo tells Actors Complaining of Poor Payment
Ace Nigerian actor, Femi Adebayo, has addressed the issue of actors complaining regarding poor payment for acting jobs in the Nigerian movie industry. The lawyer explained the payment issue during his recent interview on Talk Dairy.
Femi Adebayo recently revealed he did not foresee that his acting career would overshadow his legal practice. The actor discussed his personal life during a recent interview.
Addressing the payment issue in the Nigerian movie industry, Femi Adebayo said, “Acting is lucrative when you become popular. It can not be lucrative until you become a star. I refer to the journey to that level as an investment. You get paid according to the category you belong to. The A-list actors receive a higher payment than the B-list actors, and the order continues. I can not say I get paid peanuts because I am an A-list actor. However, an actor who recently got into the movie industry could claim he or she is poorly paid. You have not paid your dues. It happens in all professions.”
