He explained that they use the movies as platforms to showcase themselves to men who would be able to provide them with wider and better opportunities.

According to the Nollywood star, the female thespians mere appear on set give the impression that their earnings indeed comes from the movie industry.

Adeolu said; “I charge more money per movie than most Nollywood actresses but they ride bigger cars than I do. They can’t say they make all that money from acting movies to fund their lifestyle.

“These are people that if I collect N200,000 in a job, they can’t collect N20,000, but they are riding bigger cars than I am riding. What they do is come on set, show themselves on TV and so they have the opportunities. They don’t have anything in their accounts.

“Going to big parties and spraying money but when you get back home you’re calling somebody to come and pay your house rent. All these people grew up in the village. 90% of them might not think they would ever come to Lagos.”
