Actress, Dakore Reveals What Nollywood Is Suffering From
Dakore Egbuson-Akande, the award-winning actress, has weighed in on the challenges of the Nigerian film industry saying the multi-million Dollar sector suffers from lack of structure.
Speaking on the support of the Nigerian government towards Nollywood practitioners, Dakore said, “The Nigerian government has not supported Nollywood enough, I am sure they tried but they’ve not just quite found the formula yet. For me, as a practitioner, I know that we suffer from a lack of structure so that’s really what we need. That is the first thing, structure in terms of residual income for actors, welfare for us, you know making sure that we have proper health care and all of those things because we really are projecting Nigeria to the world so we really should be supported in that way.”
The Castle & Castle actress also opened up on what she had been up to lately.
Dakore said she has been on the set of TV show, Castle & Castle, as well as completing her self-produced film.
“I have been working on films, Castle by Castle, it is coming back I am so excited about that. I also just shot my own film and also powered by Nigerian Breweries so I am really doing a lot, also I have launched my beauty product ‘Dakore beauty’ so I am a really busy woman and you are going to be seeing more of me on the big screens and Netflix as usual,” she said.
