Filmmaker Emem Isong Speaks On Why Most Nollywood Creatives Remain Poor

Award winning filmmaker, Emem Isong Misodi, who recently released her latest project, Special Jollof, has bared her mind on why Nigerian creatives are not as rich as their counterparts abroad.

Isong said that there is a huge difference in the pay of Nigerian creatives and what their colleagues earn abroad. Using Hollywood as an example, the filmmaker said that it is much older and sophisticated than Nollywood, hence, it rewards their practitioners better.

She noted that the economic situation of the country cannot be separated from the industry.

The beautiful woman blamed the lack of adequate infrastructures, lack of quality support from the government and foundations that assist filmmaking. She said that the backing of these bodies would positively affect the welfare of Nollywood’s practitioners. According to her, Nollywood is not where it ought to be. She noted that they still have a long way to go.
