AGN Asks Members To Disregard Promo Demanding Cash For Movie

The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has released an official statement asking its members to shun the promotion demanding N35,000 from actors to secure movie roles.

A few days ago, Nollywood star Lala Akindoju had slammed fellow actor Femi Durojaiye for allegedly charging upcoming actors N35,000 in exchange for film roles.

Speaking with AllNews Nigeria on the issue on Tuesday, actress Monalisa Chinda, AGN Director of Communications, urged members of the body to disregard the promotion running on social media, pointing out that it was against the ethics of the profession as they do not pay for auditions or roles in the industry.

She clarified that any AGN member who pays for such auditions or movie roles does so at his or her own risk.
