Nollywood actor, Mike Ezuruonye, has criticized
upcoming actors/actresses in Nollywood, describing
them as fame seekers rather than craft developers.
According to the actor, the movie industry is
developing especially with quality sounds, compared
to what was obtainable in the past. He also stated that
cinemas are helping to fight the menace of piracy.
He noted that in the midst of this development, up and
coming acts are not ready to develop themselves in
the craft; rather they are after the fame.
The actor also explained that the reason why it looks
as if he is no more in the industry is that he selects the
kind of scripts that is brought to his table so as not to
offend his fans with some kind of movie roles.

seen in Nollywood movies:
‘I’ve been very selective with the movies I feature in
now. You’ll get to a level you have to be careful the
kind of roles and movies you accept and still not
offend your fans because you own them a lot of
allegiance. So I believe I should be acting in
movies that will put me in a better light and help take
my career forward to the next level.’
