Kidnapped actors: why people misjudge financial status of actors – Hilda Dokubo
Hilda Dokubo has lamented how Nigerians misjudge the financial strength of many actors due to what is shown in movies.
Veteran Nollywood actress Hilda Dokubo has joined the rest of her colleagues to react to the Kidnaping of Cynthia Okereke and Clemson Cornell by unknown gunmen.
Hilda Dokubo explained that although some actors paint the wrong picture on social media, it is only in line with the “Show” part of SHOWbiz and that they don’t have such kind of money. She wrote:
“We are about moving from one level of begging for alms to save an ill or dying colleague to now facing the worse of fears over two of their colleagues facing God knows what in the hands of kidnappers!
Where will we turn if not the public using our social media platforms!
Well…Finally the kidnappers have made their demands. They want money! 100M USdollars! From where?
Unfortunately they misjudged the financial status of the actors they kidnapped! And think that as it is in the movies that is how it is in real life. What a life!
Where will we get one hundred thousand USdollars from? God save all of us from this pain and give us your grace for this period.
I know some actors paint the wrong picture on social media all the time but it is only in line with the “Show” part of SHOWbiz. Hopefully you’ll understand what I mean.
I am pained because I know this two personally, have worked with them and I know the truth of how it is with them.
Just been asking myself one question all day, How much does an average actor make in Nigeria? “
