The national President of Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas has stated that Nollywood is not a dumping ground for evictees.
The actor noted this in an Instagram post yesterday, Sunday September 6th.
Although it’s not clear if Emeka’s post is a shade directed at evicted Big Brother Naija housemates who expressed their desire to venture into acting following their eviction from the house, his statement has however stirred reactions on social media.
“Nollywood! Not a dumping ground for evictees!!! case closed…Agree with me on this”, he wrote.
