Nollywood veteran actor, Yemi Solade who is aged 60, has made some unpopular revelations about the famous Nigerian movie industry. 

In a recent interview with Nigerian Tribune, he revealed that the so-called industry professionals have thrown away the value of the industry just to allow unprofessionals who don't have passion for the work to come in. 

According to him, acting is a profession and should be treated as such. He further stated that it has now become difficult to differentiate between industry professionals and the "class of clowns".

In his words he said; 

The Nollywood is not there right now. The Nollywood you see now is all encompassing. It’s like an uncompleted building that is not guarded and what you meet there would amaze you. It has become an all comers affair, anybody can stroll in and act. All the Yahoo boy are now there, all the prostitutes that you can imagine are there.People cannot even differentiate between the core professionals and these class of clowns who have infiltrated the association, but they didn’t just fly in, some people whom you refer to as core professionals brought them in.

It’s just so porous that anybody can become an actor, the entry point is so porous and annoying. It’s a profession and it must be handled and treated as one. I am not really pleased with the state of the industry. It’s a professional body and we must portray ourselves as one that has mastered the art and craft of the profession.
