Acting Doesn’t Pay My Bills – Actress Biodun Okeowo

Biodun Okeowo

In recent times, several Nollywood actresses have turned super-wealthy, leaving many persons to question the source of their wealth. In fact, some have speculated these actresses either sleep with high net worth individuals in the society or are into the business of drug trafficking.

However, Nollywood actress, Biodun Okeowo popularly known as Omobutty has recently spilt some truth about the movie industry. In a recent post on her Instagram page, the actress stated that contrary to many beliefs, acting does not guarantee the kind of wealth her colleagues flaunt on social media.

She further revealed that despite the known fact that she is one of the leading actresses in the Nigerian movie industry, acting doesn’t pay her bills.

In her words;

Many times I have been asked if acting is what pays my bills, I’m here to tell you the truth!! It is not.

The money most of us collect is not enough to foot all our bills, especially those of us with huge responsibilities, reason some of us started paying attention to businesses years ago.

That is why someone like me have done less movies and focused more on businesses that is more profitable.

Acting will give you name, recognition, often more access and in some cases very supportive fans.

My advice is as you come into this industry or continue in this job, have a legitimate side business, build quality relationships, become a serious minded business woman and expect less from any man.

I have had people talk about men making women in the industry rich and I wonder what man can make you rich and help you sustain wealth like a business will do.

So my advice again, focus on yourself building legitimate businesses, all the rest will just be an addition.

If you are lucky to meet a man who adds more to your wealth, all well and good, please grab it with both hands.

There’s nothing wrong with addition, ogun subtraction ni ka ma ri (may we not encounter subtraction IJN)…
