Popular Yoruba actor, Yemi Solade has revealed how Covid-19 is affecting his Movie Career.
Speaking with the journalists, the ace actor blows hot as he said he’s not collecting any palliative nor have any side business apart from the movie he , he particularly chooses to be a Movie Entrepreneur.
The immediate effects of coronavirus on the Nigerian movie industry are already being felt. When President Muhammadu Buhari’s first announced a 14-day national lockdown on March 31 to combatCOVID-19, it abruptly halted the activities of industries across Nigeria.
As cinemas and movie theatres remain closed across the world, the global box office revenues have dropped significantly.
While journalists begin to question on how he was coping during the lock-down, the actor replies in disappointment and told them to leave his projects and all for now that he’s not interested until COVID-19 is over.
Is it important to ask these questions now? You guys will sell your papers. You’re not bringing palliative measures to say let’s give to these people and you want me to start telling you how I’m coping with the lockdown? Why don’t you tell me how you’re coping first?
Let’s just leave my projects and all for now. I’m not interested until COVID-19 is over.
You’ll sell your newspaper, there’s nothing I’m going to benefit from telling you about these things. You’re earning a salary, I’m not. Nobody is going to pay me anything. No palliative has been offered to me so I don’t see what I’m going to benefit talking to you.
