Nigerian actor Uzor Arukwe has made a sad revelation about Nigerian filmmakers.

According to him, there was a time filmmakers cast actors based on their social media followers.

He stated that directors cast performers based on social media followers rather than skill. According to the the ‘A Tribe Called Judah’, the issue was a big problem to him.

He said during the period, filmmakers didn’t care to cast people who are talented in acting. They prioritized followers on social media instead of good acting.

He added that even at that, there were few actors who could act and also had the numbers.

“I remember all so clearly when I started. It was a big problem for me.

“There was a time in this industry when it was mostly about Instagram and Twitter followers, and stuff like that. I didn’t understand it but knew it was something I had to be at peace with, because a production house wants to hire you and they’re looking at your numbers. ‘But can he act?’ That is the question I always ask. But there are some people who are blessed who are fantastic actors who have numbers and they’ve been doing well.” the 40-year-old actor told Pulse in a recent interview.
