“Let Us Normalize Paying Upcoming Talents” – Comedian, Mr Macaroni Tells Filmmakers

Popular Nigerian Comedian, Mr Macaroni took to his Twitter account to advise Nollywood filmmakers to normalize paying upcoming talents in Nigeria.

Macaroni who’s solidly behind upcoming talents in Nigeria speaks on their behalf. He has urged that their services be paid according to the value given and not hoodwink them with the fake promises of exposure.

Here’s what he tweeted;

“Please let us normalize paying upcoming talents and also treating them with respect. Yes your platform will give them exposure, but people must be paid for work done. If we can ask the government to do better, we can also demand same from ourselves.”

“If you can’t pay upcoming Actors for their time and talent, please don’t disrespect them! That role you say you are giving them to help their career, if no one plays it, the production won’t be complete! Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.”

“Everybody wants to pay Upcoming Artists, Actors, Writers, graphic designers, photographers, models etc.. with exposure. Everytime, ‘I will give you exposure’.. Time to Eat: Creative: Give me rice and meat.. Iya Risi: Wey Money? Creative: I go pay with exposure.”
