He expressed sadness that half-baked actors and filmmakers have invaded Nollywood and are now the leading characters.

The Nollywood star said industry should be better than the level it has reached and the only reason the growth seems stagnant is because a lot of unprofessional activities are taking place.

Bob-Manuel Udokwu spoke during an Instagram Live session with journalist, Azuh Arinze during the week of his 60th birthday.

The thespian said; “Nollywood ought to be greater than what it is at the moment. Unfortunately, the true potential of the industry is not being realised. A lot of unprofessional activities are going on.
