Richard Mofe-Damijo ‘Killed’ Nollywood – Says Actor

SAN FRANCISCO, July 08, (THEWILL) – Actor, Obi Czer has accused veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD) of ‘killing’ the local movie industry by demanding outrageously low salary to star in movies and leaving new actors and actresses to demand even lower pay.

In a post on his Facebook page, Obi described RMD as “one of the architects who killed Nollywood”.

He wrote: “I love this man when I was growing up as a kid but after joining Nollywood and standing up for what was right in Nollywood I found out that this man was among the architects who killed Nollywood. RMD was collecting mere 250K-400K just to be in movies, he might say he’s doing it for passion because he loves acting but he was killing the industry with such salary when he was meant to be collecting 5,000,000 per movie. If RMD collects 250K-400K per movie then tell me how much a lower actor will collect per movie? He killed Nollywood in the name of passion instead of Business.”
