A Nigerian lady on twitter has shared her opinion on the current state of affairs in the Nigerian film industry.

The lady identified as Ruqqayah accused Nollywood of ignoring young talents because they are still giving veterans like Fathia Balogun roles that 23-year-olds should easily act.

The disgruntled lady wrote:

Nollywood is still casting Fathia Balogun for roles 23 years olds should easily play

If you see a 20-24 years old playing an important role, then he/she is the producer.

An industry with no space for youngins

This happened in Hollywood; to Amanda Bynes. She was so good, but producers just couldn’t stop offering her ‘teenager’ roles. She didn’t get a career growth at all, her contemporaries surpassed her. She slipped into depression, heavy drug use and attempted suicide several times.

My friend this tells all about the very low level of idleness that has overwhelmed your perception in regards of the entertainment world., if any. Fathia is still one of the most needed assets in that industry. Hope you know that Clooney, Hanks, Pitt, Stallone, etc are still highly revered around the world- most people enter movie halls on these names. The entertainment industry thrives on experience and development. Rarely do you see we go to movies because a wanna be is in the list, hell no.
The fact that Nollywood industry is an African odyssey doesn’t relate to sound judgement by   those who control the levers. All monies belong to producers and other owners, barely leaving the actors and actresses with hand-to mouth thing; you see the obnoxious reason why they continue to give us mere crammers- people who bring no  positive disposition to the acts, almost just monologing.  The entertainment industry largely depends on experience and face, not    the nonsense you’re spewing here; probably one of your interests thinks her squalid talent has been further dwarfed by the   highly sought-after brains like Fathia.
