Taking to his Instagram page on Thursday, Yul Edochi lamented over how some young actors don’t honor those who have come before them in the profession.
According to him, he has been in the industry for over a decade and deserves to call the shots when it comes to artiste fees but the young guys in the business want to be on their level.
In his words:
“When you see me now collecting big artiste fees and living well, don’t beef, and stop shouting ‘God when?’.
We’re not mates. That’s me, the guy holding the guitar. Movie Title: New Jerusalem. Shot in 2005. 17 years of hard work and consistency so far.
Success takes time. Some young Nollywood actors now, after just two years of hustle, they’re already complaining that they haven’t made it.
Some have no respect for their ‘seniors’. They want to chill with the big boys”
