STOP DEFRAUDING YOUNG TALENTS ANDY AMENECHI LASH OUT!







What I love about Facebook is that everything happens on that social network, yes just anything you could possibly think of; the good, the bad and the pretty ugly. But my favorite part of it is the very gossips I see on my news feed. Hehehe! I laugh in Mexican facebook as a social network also serve as…

Today I was arouse to (Not that kinda arouse, hian! Dirty minds) by legendary movie Director Andy Amenechi on what he posted on facebook concerning some film makers asking upcoming  actors to pay on their audition ground. Yes this happens in the movie industry on daily basis and little or nothing has been said or done to address this act of defrauding young talents.

But here we are someone who is feeling our pain has effortlessly volunteered to advocate for the right of upcoming actors, and the man is legendary Nollywood movie Director Andy Amenechi
Here is what he wrote:
“AUDITION IS FREE. DO NOT PAY FOR AUDITION FOR ANY ROLE. THEY NEED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU NEED THE JOBS.” They can’t deny it.

Another men I like in the industry are Ernest Obi and Vincent D. Anointed, these two men are very open minded and have been speaking up the voiceless upcoming actors like their life depends on it.
Here is what Director Vincent D Anointed shared in his timeline:
“please aspiring actors don’t pay money for you to act. I don’t run any production company and I don’t register actors for them to work with me. Be patient; if providence brings us together we will work. Beware of the thief duping people claiming to be me and collecting money from them. I don’t register anyone for anything. ‘you are supposed to be paid for acting not you paying to act…’
A word is enough for the wise”.

Good one! Helping someone in need doesn’t necessarily mean you have to provide for the person, if you can’t assist someone in realizing their dreams you can help them by giving them your good advice. And that’s what they two men do.

I was once a victim of paying money to the ‘so-called movie maker’ who paraded himself as a demigod. I ran into him earlier this year at Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, where I went with a friend to pick up his sister who flew in to the country. I was expecting to see Range rover sport utility vehicle to my greatest surprised he was pricing taxi like Akara, I greeted him and he was thrown off-guard. Why won’t he? His conscience was still flogging the living day light out of him. No peace for the wicked mind!
I enter my friend’s car and I waved at him as we drove off, he was evidently shocked. Moral of the story? Read between the lines.

Help people while you can. Don’t make anyone feel less human because you are privileged to be where you are today. I usually tell my friends that I don’t want to leave this world without affecting life positively. Nothing last forever!
I know we don’t have much on us, but that is not an excuse for us not give when situation calls for. Because there is joy in giving than receiving and I feel great joy in me when I put a smile on someone’s face.  I sign off. Need to take a nap!
