“Don’t envy us, we’re underpaid peacocks” – Gideon Okeke laments poor pay of actors

Gideon Okeke, a popular Nollywood actor, has taken to social media to express his dissatisfaction with the country’s underpaying of performers.

Many people are envious of actors and actresses as well as other popular figures, but they are simply poorly paid performers, according to the TV star.
The actor went on a long diatribe in his post, explaining that the money is peanuts, the food is crap, and the working conditions are best compared to servitude, but on red carpet dates, they dress impeccably and overlook the industry’s flaws.
He also blasted awards and red carpets, claiming that they now hand out honors for best-dressed on the red carpet, rather than the film itself, which he believes should be the main focus of the rating.
