Mercy Johnson Is Nigeria’s Highest Paid Nollywood Actress?..Where Are The Others?
Mercy Johnson Okojie is whispered to be the highest paid actress in Nollywood right now…..She supposedly collects N2Million for every movie role she interprets!
I am not saying Mercy is not deserving of being called the highest paid actress,i am just asking what happened to the others before her.
There was a time Genevieve Nnaji was rumoured to be the highest at a fee of N2.5Million, and Omotola Jalade Ekeinde and Rita Dominic have also topped the list as highest paid actresses….others have even flaunted their take home pay as being the highest in the movie industry.
So,my take is,if Mercy is the highest paid at the moment,shouldnt she be earning above what the other highest paid actresses earn/earned?
What about the male actors?how come we do not hear which one is the highest paid.?
I think Nollywood needs to let us have an official list of their highest paid actors and actresses so as to avoid according the wrong person with the highest paid title.
If you are in the movie industry and you know who the highest paid is please come and let us know……..If it is indeed Mercy then please let us.
The reason i say this is because there are whispers that waka pass acts have infilterated into the movie business and the Nollywood legends we know and see everyday on the red carpet hardly get any movie roles….and if they do get called,they reject the scripts because of the outrageous amount offered them.
I do not believe any Nollywood actor or actress is being paid more than a million naira at the moment to interpret any movie role and i believe those who collect this amount are more than one person…so the title of highest paid belongs to no one at the moment.
Please feel free to correct me if i am wrong with my analysis and right after present your detailed analysis.Thank you.
