Nollywood Is No Longer A Career Path For Talent – Opeyemi Aiyeola

Popular Nigerian actress and producer, Opeyemi Aiyeola, who paused acting for ten years noted that a lot of things had changed in the Nigerian movie industry from the time she left in 2007.

Aiyeola was away from the movie scene for a decade after she got married. She later resumed acting in 2017,

but while speaking to Saturday Beats, Aiyeola noted that a lot of things had changed in the industry from the time she left in 2007.

Speaking to Saturday Beats, she Emphasised that success in the industry was determined by talents in those days, she added that climbing the ladder of stardom now has been laced with favoritism.

“Nollywood is no longer a career path of talented people. It is now about social media. It is more about how much money an individual has to spend on publicity and the likes.

So many people even get undeserved awards these days. Outside the movie set, the industry has become a world of make-believe.

For example, everybody expects me to do photo shoots for birthdays and Valentine’s Day and I always wonder what could be the reason behind that.

And me, I have responsibilities and children to cater for, so I can’t be doing all that.”

Aiyeola also noted that building a family with her husband was her priority when she got married and relocated. “ I relocated for marital reasons. When I left for the UK; building a family together with my husband was my priority.

I feel there is always time for everything; nothing else was more important to me than my family. After raising my children, I thought the time was right for me to come back, so I came back to Nigeria to do more movies.

I discussed it with my husband and he was in support; I tried to pick up from where I left.”
