Famous movie performer,Timini Egbuson, younger sibling to versatile actor, Dakore Egbuson has datedly exposed how it felt like when he newly entered the movie industry.

Timini Egbuson, who began his career in 2010
on M-net’s soap opera Tinsel, exposed the struggles he passed through when he first began the Nollywood industry.

However, in a meeting of monarch as a guest on “Tea with Taymesan’s podcast,” Timini made this exposed as he alleged his sister, Dakore told him the movie Industry is not lucrative as it looks to be.

In accordance to him,even upon the obstacles he had to go through, he was aware that God had had divinely directed him to venture into the movie industry.

His post read;
“I knew I was not going to do 9-5 because I am very restless. I knew that this waking up in the morning being in traffic, won’t be what it will be. So I started to look for alternatives, I knew I was not going to do ‘Yahoo’.

“I can’t be in a Police station or be in a cell. A lot of people at that time were going into that. Sometimes, guys will tell you, won’t you carry a laptop?

This one you are going to movie sets. Even Dakore used to tell me at the time that there is no money in Nollywood. What will you be doing?”

That’s why from the beginning it might seem like it was strategic, but it was more of a divine direction that I got from God to make sure that I am building a brand as well that people want to see.

What these other guys don’t understand is that you can’t only be a good actor, you have to be a marketable brand”.
