Model and Nollywood actor, Uti Nwachukwu, in a new interview has revealed that the acting profession does not pay that much and he’s not ready to pretend all is well.
“I haven’t been in the country, but I am back now. I took a break from acting because it doesn’t pay much and I am not ready for that kind of life. I don’t want to pretend about it; so, I am only focusing on what brings greater remuneration, which is television presenting and hosting of events.
“Acting would just be a hobby because honestly, producers can’t afford to pay what I want to earn. But I will not stay away from movies totally; I will pick only exceptional movies instead of featuring in all the ones I am invited to partake in. I don’t have so much time for little money. I am not here to pretend all is well. I am in the industry to make money; I am not in the industry to play.”
About why he’s not married yet despite the fact that his colleagues were getting married, Uti said he was not in a rush to do same.
