He recently revealed this on social media, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, not everyone in the industry should produce a movie, so his colleagues have to stop expecting others to act for free for them for the sake of friendship.
Jigan added that he is done with that life, and he wants his friends to start charging him for movie roles because he’ll do the exact same thing when it is his turn.
His words, “This is to my colleagues please if I call you for movie please I want you to charge me and if you also call me I am going to name my price , let’s stop using friendship to kill the business.”
it’s not a must you produce a movie when you can’t pay your cast. Oremi oremi dey kill person oooo (people Dey owe house rent).”
Do you agree?
Nollywood is a sobriquet that originally referred to the Nigerian film industry. The origin of the term dates back to the early 2000s, traced to an article in The New York Times. Due to the history of evolving meanings and contexts, there is no clear or agreed-upon definition for the term, which has made it a subject to several controversies.
The origin of the term “Nollywood” remains unclear; Jonathan Haynes traced the earliest usage of the word to a 2002 article by Matt Steinglass in the New York Times, where it was used to describe Nigerian cinema.
Charles Igwe noted that Norimitsu Onishi also used the name in a September 2002 article he wrote for the New York Times. The term continues to be used in the media to refer to the Nigerian film industry, with its definition later assumed to be a portmanteau of the words “Nigeria” and “Hollywood”, the American major film hub.
Film-making in Nigeria is divided largely along regional, and marginally ethnic and religious lines. Thus, there are distinct film industries – each seeking to portray the concern of the particular section and ethnicity it represents. However, there is the English-language film industry which is a melting pot for filmmaking and filmmakers from most of the regional industries.
