In a recent interview with Hip TV, Nollywood actor and former president of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Segun Arinze blasted the new generation of Nollywood actors and described them as people that lack discipline and knowledge.
He said, “Today’s set of Nollywood actors are not grounded. What they know how to do is to speak phonetics. Most of these guys are pretentious. They are only interested in who has the highest number of likes or followers on their social media platforms.
“Most of them are not even disciplined and they lack the knowledge, they only want to be popular.”
“I am sorry to say this but the truth is that today’s crop of Nollywood actors are not grounded. Talent is not the only thing you need, you also have to be grounded.”
This comes just a few weeks after New Nollywood stars got blasted on Emma Ugolee‘s The Gist by Charles Novia and some other directors.
