Jide Kene on Caucus in Nollywood: “It’s Not The Producers’ Fault”

Nollywood actor Jide Kene argues that some performers’ work ethic may have contributed to the popular notion that the Nollywood business has a caucus.

Jide Kene noted in an interview that while some performers prefer to be careful about the roles they take, others prefer to work on a large number of films in a short period of time.

He has defended movie producers against such claims, claiming that actors’ availability dictates their attendance on specific sets.

“It’s not the fault of the producers per se it’s the structure of the industry what do I mean by structure? For example, the TV and films are not as expensive to make as compared to the cinema projects, so certain people are comfortable with making eight movies over some time and making a decent amount of money also other people would wait for one blockbuster and make the same amount of money.

“So most times it depends on how an actor or producer decides to accept themselves. It is difficult to catch me on a certain platform because maybe they shoot within five days and will rather develop my character over two months do you understand what I’m saying it can always tell some people are experts at going from sets to sets and still delivering the same thing but I like to immerse myself.

“Living in Bondage took six months, work of arts basically when you finish you drop the pen. Some other person can do that within one week and have two or three million CD sales in the East. I have friends like that Zuby Michael no dey tire na energy god and he is very good at what he does yeah so that’s it.”
