Youtube is not going to last long as a platform in Nigeria



Youtube is not going to last long as a platform in Nigeria - Kanayo O Kanayo tackles new Nollywood actors ?with no sense of purpose? over

Veteran actor,  Kanayo O Kanayo has tackled new Nollywood actors ‘with no sense of purpose’ over the shoddy jobs done on the streaming platform. 


In a video shared on his Instagram page, Kanayo said with the way Nigerian actors have ‘’rubbished” the use of YouTube, the platform is not going to last in Nigeria. He said most new-age actors charge ridiculous prices so producers try to make the most of the money spent by overworking these actors.


He said;


‘’We built Nollywood, brick by brick, block by block but the guys who have besieged YouTube, the actors not the producers, do not have any sense of purpose or process to create a procedure for a lasting videography or creating content. Take for instance, the whole irony of one-day shoot. It is not sustainable. Some of them now make it so difficult for producers. They tell you one day shoot is N1 million or N1.5 million. It isn’t sustainable. Unfortunately, my very high standing colleague who started this one-day shoot is unfortunately not in good health. Why? I know for everyone who gives you a job, they want it done. They pack you with enough to finish in one day. Thirty scenes, thirty-five scenes..Most of you think you are enjoying ‘I am fully booked for the next six months’ but your health…I hope you enjoy good health like those of us who started 38 years ago because what you are doing is not sustainable.

I bear you no malice. Earn all your money but the disservice you are doing to professionalism is not going to last long and the way I see it. YouTube is not going to last long in Nigeria as a platform.”
