Gideon Okeke get support from his colleagues after he called out Nigerian movie executives for “impoverishing actors” by refusing to pay royalties

Gideon Okeke revealed yesterday that he’s having an emotional breakdown and said that he’s tempted to quit acting because of the shabby way Nigerian actors are treated (read here).

 

He called Nigerian film executives names, including thieves, and said they do not remember the actors when it’s time to share the proceeds from the movies.

 

He added that he keeps fighting for the condition of actors to be better but his fellow actors do not show support and he asked them to grow some “balls”.

 

After he shared his post, a number of actors commented, indicating support.

 

Iretiola Doyle, Hilda Dokubo, Sam Sunny, Walter Anga, Uche Elendu, and more left comments showing him support.

 

One person blamed him for not joining the family of the Actors’ Guild, hence the reason why he’s not carried along. And Gideon responded.

 

Below are their comments.
