CHOICES ACTOR OR ACTRESSES MAKE

I only respect actors and actresses who make great choices when it comes to movie scripts - and not ones who just say yes to any script, just cos they are getting paid. 
.
I respect those who care about the script and the role they are playing and how that will exemplify them or improve their performance. Working with great directors and producers and not mediocre ones.
.
Veterans like Genny, OmoT, Stella, RMD, Ramsey, etc have all learnt this and now doing better with their script choices, but leave it to the newbies who are always rushing for fame, to always do the opposite and get defensive when they are called out on it, when all u are simply doing is looking out for their best interest for longevity and respect for their craft.
.
Tis better you find a 2nd job to fall back on have the flexibility and choice to only say yes 3 -4 great movies scripts a year than to let this acting be your only source of income and as such have to say yes to 10-20 CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPP movies a year - just to fill your materialistic needs.
.
Clearly it is evident Majority of actresses and actors in the west african movie industry - are not doing the acting cos for the love of the craft but "some" simply doing it to get fame - a lil bit of money to buy that brazilian horse weave, blackberries(babes) and maybe a car-which will then mean "they have arrived".
.
Your choices speaks a lot about your goals.
.
Good luck to those who continue to make bad choices - efffing up their CV/Resume. Abeg Dont please anybody - please your damn self - because you are acting for yourself abi?? - u are not acting for us the audience watching - as it seems you define it. (its a damn pity)
.
Nuff Said - drops mike - walks off.

As I read the title, I immediately thought of Oge Okoye. There are **PLENTY, PLENTY, PLENTY** more, but she was the first one that came to mind. Alexx Ekubo said he would not just take any script that comes his way. THANK GOD that there are some with self-esteem. And he be newbie, too. I hope that the ones with actual talent (not those who perform sexual favours or know someone who knows someone), understand the importance of being selective. THIS IS YOUR CAREER!!! Don't make obvious bad decisions. I can't say enough.

It is so true Miss telli...most of these actors and actresses in ghana and nigeria are just getting rediculos. I watched a movie called Facebook Lovers with john dumelo and nicholetta and it was terrible. I kept asking myself why John Dumelo will take a script such as this. I hope all the actors and actresses will review your blog because there must be a change. I will continue to salute Genny, Ramsey, RMD, Stella, Rita D. OmoT, Chris Attoh, etc.
