“It is really hitting me, how disorganized my industry is and how much we have not done structurally. I know there are people who are very intelligent in this industry but somehow, we have not just coordinated ourselves. Individually, some of us are doing very well but as a body, we are not.
When asked if actors demanding royalties is sustainable in Nigeria’s entertainment industry. She expressed confidence that, “It is very sustainable.” The actress also hinted at her new initiative called Teffest which according to her will change the face of entertainment in the country.
