Popular Nollywood actress, Rukky Sanda, who was reportedly given birth to with a diamond encrusted silver spoon *if you know what i mean* and was said to have come into the industry’s limelight cause of the wealth of her folks, claims that she helped herself to become what she is today.
With several self-produced movies to her credit, the actress revealed to Vanguard
‘Before I got into Nollywood, I was already doing business.I used to sell stuff, so I had my money to put into it, and my mum supported me with a loan. She collected her money back though, so there was no sentiment attached. I won’t say it was easy starting out because I spent about N3m in making my first movie, and that was quite a lot in 2005. I don’t actually get Executive Producers for my movies; I do that myself. Not like I don’t believe in going all out to source for funds, but it’s just not my thing. I had someone once who wanted to sponsor my movie, and we did that. But before the movie came out, they were already on my neck asking for their money. I had to return it to them after we finished filming; we had not even finished editing then. I told them I’ll give them their money back, but that they wouldn’t get any credit on the movie. Ever since, I only produce movies if it’s convenient for me.’
