Popular Nollywood actor, Jude Orhorha, speaking to PUNCH revealed that his colleagues in the movie industry were not what that paraded themselves to be in the public. Recounting his journey in the movie industry which began in the 1980s, the versatile actor threw light on the current happenings in the movie world and how the journey so far has been in an all-faked working working environment.
“I know what some actors and actresses did to gain the fame that they are enjoying now. Some of the men in the industry are gay while the women sleep around and that is why I am not bothered about where I am today. When it is your time, it is your time. Some entertainers are opportunist while others are born lucky. Omotola was born lucky from day one; her first character was a lead role. Some people marry for money and not love. That is why I am not really bothered because some of the guys are gigolos. They do not make their money from the movie industry but from the gigolo business. I cannot do such because I have a name to protect. In the 80s when I started this business, none of them was anywhere to be found. I have seen it all and I refuse to join them. Gays have approached me but I declined their offers because my anus is an exit point and not an entrance. The same thing with sugar mummies but I refused to accept their proposal because I cannot sleep with married women. I believe in karma. If it does not happen to you, it would happen to your generation.
How much were we being paid in the past compared to what we are earning now? When we started, the money was not really there and that is why we were more interested in the show and not the business because there was no money. There is another thing called ‘packaging’ and that is what I am against. I am not saying that entertainers should not package but they should do so according to their means. Some ‘package’ to the extent that they borrow people’s cars and clothes. It just doesn’t make sense. Some people ‘package’ till they run into debts and then when the money comes, they clear the debts.”
